Since 2011, God has been building His church among the Mahafaly people of southwest Madagascar through IMB missionaries Grant and Jodie Waller. The GBC team will be assisting in the ongoing discipleship of the Mahafaly church leadership that is now guiding upwards of 8,000 Believers in approximately 160 villages. Specifically, the team will be spending most of April teaching Bible lessons with application, conducting a marriage conference, and providing encouragement to the villagers & missionaries.

The traveling participants are experienced in the Mahafaly culture, but are prayerfully seeking prayer and financial partners to complete the team.

“We haven’t been in a position to go, but have been blessed to be able to participate in sending others. The reports of what the Lord is doing through the teams in Madagascar continue to encourage us in our daily walk.” – William & Laurie

“Though I’ve never met my spiritual brothers and sisters in Madagascar, I have grown to love them, as I’ve been privileged to pray over them and support those who have been blessed to work with them first hand. The immense faith and obedience of the Mahafaly has challenged me to humbly walk with greater conviction.” – Sarah

JD has testified many times to how God has used his numerous trips to Madagascar to transform his entire family to be more missions minded. They pray daily for missionaries and their people groups and look for opportunities to share the love of Jesus right where they live.
