Film Showing to bring people to Church

Glory to God

Ambohitompoina is a small village located at 100 Km from Antananarivo with practically inaccessible road. Rev. Rado Lalaina Henintsoa Andrianomenjanahary has recently been appointed to be in charge of the Ambohitompoina MLC District, Avaratrimania Synod. Rev. Rado L.Andrianomenjanahary first mission was to proclaim the Gospel to the villagers because many of them still follow the traditional beliefs. To be able to do this and bring them to church and grow in faith, Rev. Rado L.Andrianomenjanahary invited LHM Staff to project successively film entitled “Jesus” and “The little shepherd”. LHM Staff had also an opportunity to introduce BCC program and encouraged them to do it. This was done on November 25-26, 2016. As a result, about 1.300 villagers responded to Pastor’s invitation and watched the films with joy. Everybody received the message of the Holy Scriptures. We believe that they will serve the Lord with faith.

Young people reflect of the Gospel

“Go and proclaim the Gospel to all creation”

The members of the Association “Young people reflect of the Gospel” in Antananarivo University were not satisfied in preaching the Gospel only through BCC and film showing but must go and proclaim the Gospel to all creation. According to their outreach program for the year 2016, they have to go to the countryside to proclaim the Gospel by visiting the families’ door to door or in a public place. On October 2016, together with Youth in Mission members they carried out a campaign of evangelization for 2 days in a small village 75 KM from Tananarivo. Thanks the Lord, they were very satisfied because many people received the message of the Gospel, some young people enrolled to BCC.
