Daniel and Elizabeth Turk - March 2019 Update

Madagascar is one of the poorest nations in the world with over 90% of the population living in poverty. It has one of the highest rates of child stunting (impaired growth and development due to poor nutrition, etc.) in the world.

Doug Tilton - March 2019 Update

It is hard to believe that 2019 is already here, shouldering out what turned out to be a very full 2018.

The past year has featured a significant amount of travel. It has been a joy to be able to spend time with colleagues at the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar (FJKM) on two occasions in 2018.

Fifth Ave PC has a number of people of Malagasy heritage in the congregation and it has long been involved in supporting the work of the FJKM.

To make matters worse, locusts have been destroying crops in many parts of the country, and bubonic plague is on the rise.
