Message from Madagascar: November 2017
Dear praying friends,
Madagascar at last - or almost. We praise the Lord that Jane's visa was issued today!

It's been a long time coming but we are excited and deeply thankful to God for his faithfulness through the long months of waiting. We are not so keen on packing up our house and saying goodbye to our children will be hard, but we look forward to the fresh challenge ahead. We will fly to the capital Tana overnight on Monday 13th November. We will arrive on the same flight as Bishop Todd and his wife Patsy and we will fly on with them to Tulear on 15th. Our time until the end of the year will be for orientation into the Diocese and local community. We will be staying in an en-suite room on the diocesan compound.

The plan is then to go to language school in Antisirabe, which is in the central highlands, for three months starting in January to learn Malagasy. With the start of a new chapter we have changed the name of these brief updates. These "Messages from Madagascar" will complement our longer Link Letters which CMS send out three to four times a year. If you don't receive those please sign up ( We hope to send a Link Letter with our first impressions soon after we arrive.

Thank you for sticking with us through this extended period in England. We so appreciate your support and prayers. Of the many things we have come to know at a deeper level this year is our need and desire for God's grace. Please continue to pray for his grace to be in us and may the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you also,

Derek and Jane
