Pastor Training and Church
Strengthening in Madagascar, Africa
David and Ashley Ellingson are missionaries to the island nation of Madagascar. After one year of French language school in Albertville, France (2019-2020), they will join their GMI teammates Faly and Lily Ravoahangy in Antananarivo, Madagascar. David will have the privilege of training indigenous pastors in the Scriptures, theology, and preaching God’s Word, so they will be able to properly feed and shepherd their flocks. His team will accomplish this training through regional workshops, conferences, and, Lord willing, by establishing the first biblical seminary in Madagascar focused on expository preaching. David will also serve in a local church where he will identify, train, and disciple godly men for future leadership. David and Ashley will also serve this local body of believers through biblical counseling and hospitality. Pray for the Ellingson family as they proclaim the fame of Christ’s Name to the nations.
