Prayer Sunday for LHM and Gideon

For the Church partner Kristy Fiainana Bemasoandro Reformed Church, the first Sunday of May is dedicated to carry in prayer the activities of LHM and Gideon. So, on Sunday, May 3, 2015, Rev Botofanjely Samuel and committee members of the Church invited the LHM and the Gideon to attend the Sunday service and raise awareness to the Christians about the activities offered by the two partners. The LHM is very grateful for this decision taken by this Church because prayer is very important in the implementation of activities. It was also an opportunity for LHM to encourage the Christians to learn the Bible through BCC and to motivate the commissioned volunteers attending the ETS to go ahead for their outreach program. LHM brochures were distributed during the service.
