AIM Location: Madagascar
The world’s fourth biggest island boasting flora and fauna that exist nowhere else on earth. 92% of the population exist on less than £2 per day. 41% of the population identify with Christianity, 7% with Islam, the majority follow Traditional African Religions.
In 1979 Colin & Christine Molyneux began AIM’s work in Madagascar. Initially working with the Malagasy Bible Society the plan was for AIM mission partners to engage in farm projects that would support poor communities, and encourage Christians in these communities to share the gospel. Quickly, however, it became clear to the Molyneux’s that there was a tremendous need for evangelism and Bible teaching across all of Madagascar. Whilst many in Madagascar professed the Christian faith, few knew Christ.
Today the task continues, Madagascar is still in need of Bible teaching and there remains ten people groups who are still waiting to hear the gospel for the first time. AIM’s goal is to reach these unreached people with the good news of Christ, and to see Christ-centred churches across Madagascar, and the rest of Africa.
Do you have medical skills that you could use to serve in a mission hospital in rural Madagascar? Use your profession to love and serve peoples’ physical needs, whilst sharing your love for Jesus to meet the spiritual needs of the unreached Tsimihety people.
