Prison Antanimora

Leading the prisoners to stare at Jesus Christ.

We call you back that LHM activities within the Prison Antanimora Capital of Madagascar are not limited just on the spiritual education of prisoners but also on the body and mind educations. For that, since 2013, a tournament soccer game 7 was held in the prison every year. For this year 2015, the tournament took place during the month of October and the final of 7 soccer game’ was held on October, 26. At halftime of each game, sensitization on Bible Correspondence Courses (BCC) was undertaken. It was a special event, a joyful time for everybody so about 2 000 prisoners watched the match. A cup was given to the winner team and rice to all tournament participants. Our Father in heaven will give them the Holy Spirit to strengthen them and help their faith.

Kristy Fiainana Antanetilava Reformed Church

Outreaching through Film showing

In the country side the best way to lead those who are still outside the Church to enter the church for the first time is a film projection. So the night just after the ETS organized on October 01-02, 2015 at Antanetilava Reformed Church, a film projection was programmed in the Church. All the villagers were invited to watch the movie entitled: “The journey to the sky”, “Sudden death” and “Jesus” so they will receive the biblical message conveyed. The Pastors took this opportunity to bring the people to join the Church, to feel at home and especially to bring them to Christ. The church was full, so The Helper, the Holy Spirit, will teach them everything and make them remember all the messages they received.
