Antemoro “coastal people” of Amosiala come to faith after learning about Christ through an OM team and volunteers from a neighbouring village.
About 120 people from Maroala, a town 600 kilometres southeast of the capital, Antananarivo, joined OM Madagascar to bring the gospel to the neighbouring village of Amosiala. “They walked 25 kilometres only to be part of what God was doing here!” said Rolland Rakotonandrasana from Madagascar.
The local Antemoro people of Amosiala only speak a very basic Malagasy—the island’s most widespread indigenous language—and have their own dialect called Temoro. Antemoro is a Malagasy word that means "coastal people". Roland and other leaders did their best to communicate with very basic language and body gestures because they didn’t have a translator.
Nevertheless, a few witch doctors and other people responded by saying: “We got ‘The Story’; it´s time for us to give our lives to Jesus!” Sixty people came to saving faith. A local pastor will follow up with these people to help them continue walking in the steps of the One who wrote a new story for each of them.
