After six years of evangelism among the Nyamwezi in Tanzania, one lay leader evangelist related that he has grown weary. He finds that people are eager to agree with the gospel message presented, but their hearts are far from trusting in Christ fully. Pray that God will transform their lives from the inside out, that they would place their trust wholly in the Lord and they would steward well what God has given to them.
The Islamic holy month of Ramadan, where Muslims fast to please Allah and seek his mercy, is due to start at the beginning of April. As Ramadan approaches, AIM’s missionaries living in areas which are predominantly Muslim often get asked whether they will be fasting for Ramadan. Please pray that God will give them the right things to say in response, and that they will be able to speak of how we can relate to God based on his grace instead of needing to be good enough for him.
While Simon and Miriam Desborough are preparing to serve in Antananarivo, Madagascar, they are serving in Diaspora ministry in the UK with a local church.

Hervé and Nathalia Ramangalahy are part of a ministry team based on the island of Nosy Be off the northwest coast of Madagascar. Madagascar is hit by multiple cyclones travelling westwards from the Indian Ocean between January and March every year. Nosy Be often suffers less from these than mainland Madagascar because of being sheltered by it, but the island has still suffered damage to homes, disruption of food supplies, and flooding. Please pray that Nosy Be and the rest of Madagascar would be spared further destructive cyclones this season, and for the nation as it recovers from this season’s cyclone damage.
