So Madagascar, huh?! Yes, we have been called to be the coordinators for the ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program in Madagascar. We are being sent to walk with the people of Madagascar, as we work with young adults from the United States, that feel God pulling on their heart strings, to experience God on a global level. So what does that mean…stay tuned and we’ll find out together. We will be in Madagascar, living in Antananarivo (say it, three times fast!), for a four year commitment, so we’ll have plenty to talk about.
There is a saying in Malagasy, Tsihibelambana ny olona, which is roughly translated to mean that all people together are a great broad mat. Which to me means unity; oneness that can be felt, enjoyed, and shared by all people. Tanya and I are super excited to be embarking on a journey to Madagascar, where the people understand that we are all from the same mat. We are one.

We’ll keep you up-to-date on our adventures to come!
