Preaching the Gospel in prison

Love is the most important of all laws

As last year, in addition to Bible Course Correspondence (BCC) in order to increase the number of student, we continue to support other activities in the prison of Antanimora, located in the capital city, through Cultural and Sport competition. So, during the months of September and October 2014, the second ‘7 soccer game’ tournament was organized in this prison by LHM team. During each game, sensitization on BCC was undertaken. LHM banner was exposed too during the tournament. As a result, we hope very soon an increasing number of new BCC students. The final of the ‘7 soccer game’ tournament took place on 15th of October 2014. Mr. Jaona Andrianasolo, LHM Manager and Mr. Louis Rakoto Rabehajaina, LHM Program Manager attended to this final game and the closing ceremony of the tournament. To encourage the prisoners, Mark 12: 28-34 was preached by The LHM Manager. The main message was ‘love for God and love for neighbor: the most important of all laws’. Pennant with LHM logo was given to the champion and rice to all tournament participants (about 80 persons). 20 New Testament were distributed to prisoners BCC student and two soccer balls for the competition too. “…I was in prison, and you came to visit me” Matthew 25:36b

Young Christian branch in Anosibe Fampiraisana Lutheran Church.

Well knowing the Word of God is the basis of the success of evangelization.

The partnership between the Young Christian branch in Anosibe Lutheran Church and LHM began in January 2012 through BCC. Mr. Jean Charles, an active member of this branch is the volunteer who is in charge of BCC students. The Young Christians Lutheran branch deals with moral, physical and spiritual education of young people and of course as a choir, the goal is to make grow in faith the members. So, on Sunday Oct 12, 2014, the staff LHM met the members and convinced them to enroll for the BCC. They are very grateful for the work of LHM and said that: “it is through the Bible study that we manage to know Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, and to grow in Him or strengthen our faith in Him”. They hope that the LHM does not limit their awareness only with the Young Christian branch but for all the parishioners in Anosibe Fampiraisana Lutheran Church.
