ABOUT THE TEAM:
Team Northern Madagascar’s desire and goal is to take the gospel of Jesus Christ to all the peoples in northern Madagascar, as part of the Great Commission. To make disciples who will make disciples, to plant churches that will plant churches. We are technically responsible for five people groups (PGs): Northern Sakalava, Antankarana, Northern Betsimisaraka, Sihanaka, and Tsimihety, but since the population of northern Madagascar includes people from all PGs, we seek to make disciples of all the people in our area. All these PGs practice ancestor worship, and even self proclaimed Christians often syncretize these traditional beliefs with Christianity. Almost all the Antankarana and some Sakalava practice “folk” Islam, which is more of a cultural Islam, syncretized with ancestor worship. We currently have missionaries living in Mahajanga. Please pray for more missionaries to join Team NoMad in order to live life among and reach the Sakalava, Antankarana, Betsimisaraka and the Sihanaka people groups with the gospel.

1) Please pray for our Team NoMad families to rely fully on the Lord for strength, wisdom, love, and perseverance. As a team, we realize that we can’t do the work the Lord has called us to apart from daily abiding in Christ and walking in the full armor of God. Please pray that we would be spiritually ready for all we encounter in the north of Madagascar, because thousands of souls are at stake.
2) Please pray that God would raise up reproducing disciples who are called by God to lead reproducing churches from the peoples of Northern Madagascar.
3) “Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Please join us in praying for more workers to join Team NoMad. Approximately 5 million people live in our area and are desperate to hear about the gospel, to learn from the Bible, and to be given an opportunity to accept God’s gift of salvation.
