The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles

[Flag] The Democratic Republic of Madagascar is an island located in the Indian Ocean off the southeastern African coast of Mozambique. The Malagasy people comprise 98% of the population, consisting of 18 main groups of mixed African, Arab and Indonesian
origin speaking a single language related to Indonesian.

Annexed by France in 1896, it gained its independence as the Malagasy Republic in 1960. A coup in 1972 led to a disastrous experimentation with Marxism. Madagascar experienced popular protest and violent suppression before the government allowed multi-party elections in 1993.

Whereas the former government was anti-Christian, there is now religious freedom. The road system is in a very poor condition, hindering the spread of the Gospel into many unreached areas.
