[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] The erection of the New Church of St Alban in the region of Ambilobe is progressing . After nearly two years since the land was offered by the Moslem community to the Anglican church in the suburb of Matsabory Leidama , the brick building is nearing its completion. The Revd Rolline , one of the first three women deacons to be ordained in Madagascar in the Province of the Indian Ocean, has been the backbone of this new mission church plant in a predominantly moslem society of northern Madagascar. Bishop Roger Chung Jaomalaza received some donations and so galvanised iron sheets and other materials were bought in Antsiranana Diego suarez and transported by the Bishop's vehicle to the longing congregation on Saturday 15th March 2008. Please pray that this church will be completed and that natural catastrophies like cyclones do not visit us .
