The Plague and Mamafy

(A post we made on our Facebook page on November 2)

We realize not everybody are on Facebook--- so we are just sharing the same update we did a week ago there, here.

Anyone who has read about Madagascar in the news over the recent weeks knows that we've had a more intense plague season than in past years. Rest assured, we have remained unaffected by these happenings. Grocery stores continue to be open, we are still free to go where we want, schools have re-opened since this Facebook update. Please continue to pray for the nation however. Fear and uncertainty continues to grip the nation... perhaps more-so than the actual plague itself. It's difficult to find reputable accurate information. Nobody seems to really know what the facts are. We do know, however, that nobody around us is sick or getting sick. PTL.

This week Rob had a special opportunity to meet a couple flying with MAF via the Mamafy program we shared about in various churches in Canada. As Rob explained it to me, I sensed the passion and excitement this couple translated to him. It is a very special thing to be able to maximize their travel time to go to the isolated regions, not to mention travel a much safer way! More on this in our next newsletter update to you all.

This is what happens when Mom starts cooking "stinky" sweet and sour sauce for chinese noodles on the stovetop.... they all loved it though. (All except for Faith.  :)

Back to Madagascar

After a great sunny and warm summer spent in Canada visiting many of you in churches on the island and the lower mainland, we have safely arrived back in Tana. We are on day four since our return, and the jetlag is still going strong. Hopefully we will get a good night's sleep soon!

In an effort to keep ourselves awake when we're supposed to, and fill time when we are up in the middle of the night, voila, we have created this video summary of our trip back. Maybe it will give you an idea of what it's like on the plane ride back. Of course this three and a half minute video condenses about 28 hours of travel.  :)

We also hope to get our September newsletter out to many of you in the coming weeks.
