Grace News – Spring 2022
Grace News is Anglican Aid’s quarterly newsletter, through which we share encouragement and updates from our project partners. Below our feature story about Madagascar, you will find updates from our work in Uganda, Indonesia, and more.
As I have visited church partners in Africa this year, I have been impressed by godly, mission-minded church leaders, seeing evangelism and church planting going ahead amongst some of the poorest people on Earth, using prayer and minimal resources.
In Madagascar, our Anglican church partners are using MegaVoice audio Bibles to share God’s word. Donations to Anglican Aid by people like you helped fund the players, which are solar powered, so they don’t rely on the scarce electricity. They allow the many people in Madagascar who can’t read, to hear God’s word for themselves. I met a number of people who had come to faith through listening to them.
One young woman said, “When we received this MegaVoice player, we learned how to pray. We learned about the Bible. It helped us to grow in our faith. Also our friends who saw us listening to the MegaVoice listened with us and became Christians with us.”
“Hundreds are turning to Jesus.”
Sulu was a nominal Christian when he started listening to the audio Bible. “‘When I listened to the MegaVoice, I grew in Christ. I was committed to worship him and I became a catechist,” he said. “My spirit has changed.”
God’s people are eagerly sharing their faith in Southern Madagascar and hundreds are turning to Jesus. It was encouraging to visit some of the new churches that have been planted in the last two years, filled with new believers. The Diocese of Toliara is eager to train pastors to lead these new churches.
They are seeking our help to sponsor 50 more students at St Patrick’s Theological College. Find out more about sponsoring a Bible college student.
As they serve amongst some of the poorest people on earth, the Diocese of Toliara is also undertaking development work, such as clean water projects supported by Anglican Aid. It is a privilege to be in partnership with these hardworking brothers and sisters in Christ who are faithfully sharing God’s word and his great love.
