Hovercraft Pilot Jose Andrianariliva has spent two days getting back from Mahajanga – we are now servicing the Land Cruiser so we can send the team back to the North. Jose has been in the field for the past two months and deservedly was pretty exhausted having outrun the Storm. We’re glad he made it back safe and sound.

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.
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.

Ankavandra is severed from the outside world for 4 months each year during the rainy season. In the dry season, access is scarcely better with the track a sea of clay dust and the river so low as to make it almost unnegotiable by canoe. Year round the region is blighted by bandits who target the herds of zebu being driven to the cattle market in Tsiroanomandidy.
Over the 5 days of the September 2016 MMS to Ankavandra we were able to give… Consultations to 235 people, Major surgery to 5 people, Minor surgery to 7 people, Dental care to 56 people, Echographies to 29 people.
Shot by Bandits : Saved by Your Support
Cattle rustling is rife in the wild regions of Madagascar.
