In Madagascar 80% of the population is animist, practising witchcraft and ancestral worship. 44.6% of the traditional Christians believe in ancestral worship. Only 7% of the population are evangelical Christians. (Hosea 4:6 "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.") Where God's Word and God's Knowledge is absent, people suffer - also in Madagascar.
Therefore GRN joined forces with the translation teams of Dr Leoni Bouwer to help teach Malagasy people the Message of the Word of God.
- We supply the team with GRN evangelistic tools for the church leadership to start with.
- We network with them in order to get these materials translated, especially in the speech forms in the lower regions - not around the plateau near the capital city.
You can be a part of this great effort by adopting a church through your sponsorship of one set of audio-visual teaching materials to use in their cell group meetings, Sunday school and worship services.
One set of materials costs R924.00 or $92(US) includes:
- 1 x AudiBible player - R240
- 1 x 8 Flipchart (A3) picture books - R504
- 1 x Good News Backpack (protection for flipchart books) - R180
