Madagascar lies in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa, east of Mozambique. It has a population of 18.6 million with 44% of that being under the age of 14. The average age is 17. Although the church in Madagascar has had the Bible in their own language since 1836, many of them have little understanding of its message. 

DPM co-workers Dries and Valerie Du Plessis live in west Madagascar and have been missionaries there for 20 years. Thanks to a kind donor in Norway they were able to translate and print the booklet Will You Intercede? and the Rediscovering God’s Church book. Written material will also be voiced onto CDs in Dries’ home studio. 

Another reason to be thankful is the Lord sent Dries and Valerie a lady who speaks English and French to help them with ongoing Malagasy translation and editing.
