Greetings to everyone, from the town of Antsirabe, Madagascar. This is our temporary town as we study and attempt to learn the Malagasy language. We will be studying language and learning culture here until July. After our official, formal language class is complete, we will be moving to the Northern Madagascar town of Diego Suarez and will be working among the Northern Sakalava people. Our language teachers in the photos are Madame Lalao, and her son Andry. They are both experienced and very good teachers and we are fortunate to have them. We would ask that you would please pray for our ability to learn, comprehend and retain the language, and that you would pray for the salvation of the Sakalava people that we are going to serve. Thank you all for your continued prayers and support as we strive to reach Madagascar for Christ.

Good luck with your new "native" tongue. I will pray that God just wakes you up one day with the ability to speak and comprehend the new language as if you were "born again" with it!
