Church visitation: Protestant Military Chapel

“For they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body” Proverbs 4:22

On February 12, 2017, LHM representative visited the Protestant Military Chapel at Betongolo Antananarivo. Among the Key Messages we shared was that of Proverbs (4: 22) saying “For they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body”. The retired Colonel R. David is the General Secretary of this Chapel. He is a BCC student. Col David believed that despite all the trials every one passes through, only by the Grace of God can people be saved. At the present, he is the LHM BCC volunteer in this Chapel; he is very happy to carry out all the duties of Jesus’s ministry.

Holistic Program

Prison Camp, Nenilava Lutheran Revival Center and Avotra Center in Fort Dauphin

May we also have a Bible and Christian Hymn book for prisoners to learn the Word of God? One of the Prison Camp Chiefs told LHM Director while distributing rice for 100 prisoners on January 2017. This was an opportunity for LHM to show God’s love and care for every prisoners in Fort Dauphin. LHM was mostly welcomed thanks be to God the same at Toby Nenilava Lutheran Church when more than 600 people gathered to listen to the Word of God shared by LHM team. God is great. He loves his people and cares about their lives. LHM also distributed rice and they were very thankful. May God bless LHM and its ministries, reiterated Past Idealy Tozaka in charge of this Parish. But, the LHM didn’t forget also the Avotra Center and distributed rice for 30 underprivileged young children.

Holistic Program

Four bags of rice offered to Youth Offenders Center in Ambodin’Isotry, Antananarivo

The Youth Offenders Center in Ambodin’Isotry was one of the LHM partners. For some reasons, this partnership stopped in June 2014. This year, however, remembering the underprivileged young children at this center, LHM Madagascar settled back the relationship through BCC programme. On December 21, 2016, LHM distributed 4 bags of rice as a Christmas gift. This was part of the holistic programme. The responsible of the center asked if LHM could also reorganize a film showing.
