Alexi and Mbotizara: Lives Transformed in Madagascar (VIDEO)

Alexi and Mbotizara live in a small Sakalava village in Madagascar. They believed in a Creator but didn’t know Him. If there was a sickness in their family, they would go to the witch doctor. Then missionaries began coming to their village, offering to pray with them and teaching about Jesus and His path. Alexi and Mbotizara had heard about Jesus before but now they began to think about Him. Jesus began calling them to follow Him, and once they decided to follow, their lives were forever changed. Gone is the evil spirit that tormented Alexi. Gone are the visits to the witch doctor. And gone is the worry that plagued their lives. Now, Alexi says, “I have given everything to Jesus and He is the reason for the happiness in my heart.” 

Watch Alexi and Mbotizara as they tell their story in their own words, and be encouraged by the awesome power of our God.
