Several videos about life and our work here in Madagascar!
This is a short introduction to the country of Madagascar, to our work in the rural villages of the east with YWAM Tamatave, and to our upcoming work to the Antakarana tribe, where we’ll be living among them on the remote island of Nosy Mitsio.
Here is an excellent video narrative developed by AIM, telling the story of both the Antakarana and the Sakalava (another mid-northern tribe in Madagascar).
Here is another great and short video made by AIM explaining the type of team we’ll be leading on Nosy Mitsio. It’s called a TIMO team – Training in Ministry Outreach.
This is a slideshow (with a few videos) put together by me and one of the students for the party at the end of the Discipleship Training School at YWAM Tamatave (Madagascar) in October 2012. Because it highlights all of the students, none of it is written in English (most the students are Malagasy) and there are several inside jokes. But, even for those not familiar with YWAM Tamatave or Madagascar (i.e., our friends anywhere else in the world) I think you’ll still find interesting photos and video of our last 5 months of life here, including quite a lot from our work (through the 3 different teams) in the rural villages. The music is a Malagasy praise song about Jesus.
If you came to Madagascar and drove around for the day, this is what you’d likely see. There’s a little footage from when we arrived in Madagascar in the capital city; quite a lot from the major roads in the town we’re currently living in (Antsirabe) where we’re soon to complete our Malagasy language study; and a bit more from the roadsides in-between – to give a glimpse of what the rural areas of Madagascar look like – though most of Madagascar’s rural population are far more removed from the roads than what you see here. It’s all just a glimpse at some of the typical roadside sights of Madagascar, with music by “Tarika” (“Retany” is the name of the song), one of my favorite Malagasy bands.
