We Have Arrived!

We have made it safely to Nosy Mitsio, Madagascar. I will post as often as we can.

Pictures are not uploading well on the island but as soon as I have better internet I’ll post a while bunch!

So far we have been participating in the normal chores of the village. Steve and I attended a funeral meal in another village yesterday (Sunday). It was an amazing experience! We were sat in a couple huts with the headmen of different villages and enjoyed sweet breads, amazing lemongrass tea and then lunch was beef that had just been butchered and cooked a few different ways. The beef and rice boiled in coconut milk was my favorite!

Marcie has been able to spend her time with Bekah and the kiddos, getting to know how this amazing family functions through each day. She has enjoyed some amazing firsts. She attempted to water ski and yesterday she snorkeled! She has been so adventurous!

We love seeing all that God is doing here. There is Spiritual darkness, but I sense God is opening hearts to His Gospel message!

Serving Him in Madagascar,

Josh and Marcie

Checked in and Ready to Fly!

We have made it to O’Hare with no problems! Thanks to my dad who took the time to drive us! Thanks!

We have made our final calls to family and the boarding process will begin shortly. Thank you for all the texts and phone calls this morning! So many woke up early to encourage us and we are so thankful!

Next stop, Ethiopia! I’ll send another update as soon as we can!

Adventuring for Him,

Josh and Marcie
