Summer Newsletter 2018

Hello and welcome to the summer edition of HoverAid news!
“Declare his glory among the nations, his marvellous works among all the peoples!”
Psalms 96:3
These are not just words for missionaries, but for all of us everyday. And His work over the last few months have been marvellous and amazing. It was incredible to witness the generous and faith filled response of our team to the huge numbers of people in Marolambo in May this year. This was the first time we had visited them and we went again two days after we returned, you can read the story on page 2.

Summer 2017 Newsletter

Let me encourage you: Come and build bridges. Jesus commanded that we “love our neighbours as ourselves”, which sounds simple; it’s a nice philosophy or the bedrock of attitudes depending on your take. So what does it mean? Practically in personal relationships
we talk about five love languages – Gift Giving, Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Physical Touch (if you don’t know about these then it’s worth investigating).

In the response to Cyclone Enawo HoverAid supporters gave the gifts of food, tools, and seeds; we spent time seeking people out who needed support and went back time and again; we stood with them as they faced challenges and supported their decisions; we held their hands when they cried; and we went the extra mile to physically build an actual bridge connecting two villages and a school. We
(you, me, all of us) are all part of this process: gifts, time, prayers, actions and connections.

Reading this newsletter is part of building bridges and loving our neighboursso thank you for engaging.

Winter 16 Newsletter

We are a community separated by continents, cultures and languages but by sharing in each other’s experiences and gifts we can begin to interact as neighbours. We believe this interaction will transform us.

Welcome

Madagascar is a wild and untamed country, bursting with life lived at the limit, and frequently beset by tragedy and struggle. We’d like to share some of the realities of our mission in Madagascar where we are using hovercraft to establish connection with isolated individuals and communities that, in turn, fosters healthy growth. It isn’t easy and there are no quick fixes.

We’ve been working in Madagascar for ten years and yet we really have only just begun our journey there. As we recognise God’s image in each other and in community we continue to seek to follow Jesus and afford everyone the freedom, dignity and opportunity to grow from poverty to plenty. Please help and, if you can, pray for Madagascar – both wonderfully and terribly wild.

Shot by Bandits : Saved by Your Support

Cattle rustling is rife in the wild regions of Madagascar.

Far from the cities and hospitals, our surgeons are often called upon to provide life saving operations in the aftermath of the conflicts between bandits and herdsmen like Daniel.
