ETS Workshop

A preliminary meeting with the new church partners

LHM held a preliminary meeting with 4 pastors from Reformed Churches on December 18 in Atsimon’ny Mahamasina Reformed Church. It was a meeting to set up a new partnership through ETS Workshop Training. It will be the third ETS for the FY 2014/2015 and it was thus agreed that the ETS training will be held in Antananarivo on February 5-6, 2015.

BCC graduated students

Stand firm and steady

According to the request of Rev Nirina H. Ranarimalala, Andafiavaratra Reformed Church and Mr Finaritra, the BCC LHM volunteer, an awarding ceremony for the 17 BCC graduated students was organized during the Sunday service on December 14, 2014. After this ceremony, the LHM Audience Relations and the Pastor took the opportunity to raise awareness all Christians especially men to study the Bible because it is the Word of Life. It was noticed that it is women who are more convinced and are thirsty to grow their faith as it is the male the head of household. Thanks the Lord for giving us always times to proclaim the Gospel.

Reformed Church Partnership development

To make known the LHM and its activities in order to develop the partnership with the Reformed Churches Congregation, the Director of LHM accompanied with the Program Manager has made a courtesy visit to the President of the Southern Synod of Antananarivo, Rev RABELISON Harimanitra Manasse. This visit will be followed by other presentation about LHM in some meetings of the Southern of Antananarivo Synod. We hope that these visits will strengthen the partnership and collaboration with the Reformed Church in this Synod, particularly through the Bible Correspondence Course (BCC) and the Workshop Training Seminar entitled Equipping the Saint (ETS).

Church visitation

The word of God will continue to spread and grow

As a result of our meeting with the Pastor RANAIVONIARIVO Tiana Alisoa of the Reformed Church Atsimon’i Mahamasina last month, the LHM was invited to raise awareness the Christians on BCC, Radio Program, Film and Christian literature during Sunday service on November 30, 2014. It is one of a big church in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar, so we hope that many parishioners will enroll to BCC, read Christian books and use the films to better help them to grow in faith and in hope. In addition, tracts about radio program and leaflets were distributed. The LHM Program Manager as an active member of this Church will work closely with the different branches, to convince the members to take big interests on the LHM activities. Glory only to God.
