Growth is a sign of health, right? By God’s grace, our ministry has been blessed in so many ways.
We are in the final phase of acquiring some print-on-demand equipment and will start printing and publishing activities, Lord willing by July 1st, 2023.
Our printing ministry will be used to print resources for our preaching institute but will also provide a source of income for it, as we will be able to print any books that comply with our printing parameters.
Our publishing department will enable us to print theological books that we endorse, either in French through our international partners, or in Malagasy. The resources in our language can either be translations of French or English books or works of native theologians.
Needless to say, we are very excited!
Else, we are welcoming 4 new team members and I would like to introduce them to you.
At the age of 14, I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Before that, I just went to church because my parents were Christians. I did what good boys do and attended Sunday school because everyone else attended.
After my conversion in 2009, I started to grow and to get more involved in my church in Diego Suarez (FJKM). After high school, I chose to study Sociology at the University of Ankatso in Antananarivo and, in 2019, I was convinced that I needed to be baptized thus asked my spiritual mentor to baptize me.
I started to serve in the worship and sports ministries of my church FJKM Zoara fanantenana Ambohipo and, since 2021, I joined Madagascar 3M.
This ministry has helped me grow spiritually and develop in many other areas, and I thank the Lord daily for this blessing.
I got married to Sarobidy in December 2022 and now attend and serve the Lord at the Biblical Baptist Church of Andavamamba with my wife.
It is a grace of God and a pleasure for me to be part of the 3M team as the Corporate Administrative and Finance Manager.
I grew up in a Christian family and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior at age 9. Since then, I’ve been eager to serve Him and to learn the Scripture more and more. I helped with the children’s program and was part of the choir in the Biblical Baptist Church of Antsiranana. I was baptized when I was 18 in 2014 and grew in my commitment exponentially. I now am part of the children and teenager ministry, not only at my church but at our denomination level. I also am part of the worship team.
I got married to Oliva in 2022. I have been part of Madagascar 3M since 2020 and a member of the Biblical Baptist Church of Andavamamba since 2016. It has been exhilarating to be able to serve the Lord in all these avenues.
I got a bachelor’s degree in communication in 2018 and have begun to work in that sector: archivist, community manager, and project manager. I am so glad to now join the 3M team as the Commercial and Marketing Manager for 3M Publishing and Printing. A new challenge for me.
These verses are my life verses since my baptism in 2018:
Colossians 3:17: “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
Galatians 1:10: “For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.”
I was born in a catholic family in Sambava, a town in the North of Madagascar. My parents, wanting to provide a better level of education for us, moved my brothers and I to Antananarivo in 2003.
I was born again in 2014. The Lord used a Bible study group that met weekly right in the house next door to make me realize that my works and my efforts to be a good person are not the way to reconciliation with God. I found true life, I found salvation in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for my sins. He is THE way to salvation.
I began to really love reading and studying the bible and I discovered a new hobby: reading theology books. I was happy when I learned all these things about God, but at the same time there was a kind of sadness that came over me because I saw the contrast between sound doctrine and the Christianity that is practiced in my country. The gap is huge.
I prayed that I might participate in the advancement of good doctrine and the recoil of false teaching in my country. And my prayers were heard! The Lord blessed me with close friends and communities who love the bible. I was able to serve in a few ministries.
I didn’t attend a bible-centered church until 2019 but the Lord still graciously provided a community with a great sense of fellowship and love for the Word of God, whenI joined the Biblical Baptist Church of Antsahabe (also called Internation Baptist Church) where I still gladly serve until now.
I studied and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Logistics Operations Management and a Master’s degree in Commerce. At the same time, I worked as a web redactor, followed some digital training and immersed myself in the world of digital marketing.
“All things work for the good of those who love God” and the Lord prove it again with this new opportunity. I am called to serve with the team of Madagascar 3M as the Communication and Digital Marketing Manager in the newly created project: 3M Publishing & Printing. Not only I can continue to work in digital marketing, but I am serving in a project that is close to my heart. Praise God.
I grew up in a Christian family, raised by my parents in Christian circles. I was taught about Jesus and the Word of God early on in the local church.
It was in 2012 that I really knew that I need Jesus Christ as the way of life, the way to save sinners. I understood that it is not enough for me to know facts about God or just to be a “good child”. The Lord touched me and led me to accept Him as Lord and Savior.
The love for God’s Word grew in the Scripture Union group I was part of, as well as Bible Study Fellowship. Even though I spent a short time there, I grew to know more about God… I also benefited there from the help of spiritual mentors.
I studied mechanical and industrial engineering at Ecole Supérieure Polytechnique d’Antananarivo. I really wanted to work full-time for a Christian company when I was in school, and I for a long time asked the Lord, “What do you want me to do?”
The Lord led me to see that my calling is to help Christians who are thirsty for spiritual growth, and I saw the need for maturing among many Christian believers. I designed a “devotional Bible study card” to enable and help people to study the scriptures every day. I volunteered in another organization and continued to be a member of the Executive Committee of that organization.
Now, God has called me to join Madagascar 3M and I will be the Technical and Maintenance Manager for 3M Printing and Publishing. I am so excited to serve God with the team at Madagascar 3M. May His will be done in me and through me!
It is truly a pleasure to have them serve with us starting on May 1st, and I am looking forward to seeing how God will use them for His glory.
