Serving the People of Madagascar!
Madagascar, the 4th largest island in the world, located in the Indian Ocean near the continent of Africa, has been the home to the Rostorfer family for over 10 years. Madagascar, with a population of over 20 million people, is considered one of the10th poorest countries in the world. They partner with the Assemblies of God church to: REACH the lost through evangelism, PLANT new churches, TRAIN the church for ministry, TOUCH the needy with compassion
Jay spends much of his time training local churches in personal evangelism, as well as holding evangelistic crusades in the cities as well as in the bush. Throughout the year he also teaches in the Bible School, helping to train and equip future Pastors for the work of the ministry. He also is the National Commander for the Royal Rangers ministry, that works with boys and girls across the island in a Christian based scouting program.
In order to accomplish the goals of helping the Church in Madagascar, it takes more than one family. In reality, we are part of a team of other missionaries who are all working together. Our giftings include those who are involved in preaching, teaching, developing leaders, children's ministry, medical outreach, compassion ministries, etc.. As we come alongside our Malagasy brothers and sisters in Christ, together we are reaching Madagascar one heart at a time.
