We had the privilege of having Dr. Mark Tatlock, president of The Master’s Academy International (TMAI), visit us a few weeks ago. He is one of the pastors of the fellowship group we attended at Grace Community Church and was my boss at work during our time in the USA. We became friends and I have always looked up to him as one of my mentors and so always cherish any time I have to pick his brains and learn from his example.
His visit was very encouraging to me as I was able to show him the context in which we serve as well as hold a few key meetings and discussions on what a TMAI involvement in Madagascar can look like.
He was also able to visit and preach at our home church, have lunch with some of the members of the congregation, and meet with the eldership team.
There are still a lot of building blocks that need to come together for this to become a reality, but it was so uplifting to be able to frame the potential future a little bit better. Please continue to pray as the Lord is at work to raise more worshippers and witnesses of His great name here in Madagascar.
