Volunteers to Betikara

The island nation of Madagascar is now under a newly elected democratic government. There are still a lot of things that need to be worked out in the government and in the country. We are going to start accepting applications for volunteers. However, please remember that Madagascar is a country that is still not totally stable. Please also realize that the stability and security in Madagascar can change quickly.

In the memo area of your donation checks you can write several different things. However, all things written in the memo area of your checks should begin with “Betikara”. This will help those receiving donation checks for Betikara to know that the checks are specifically for Betikara and not for the Three Chopt Road Church of Christ.

Please read below for ideas concerning what you can write in the memo area of your checks. “Betikara – ____________”     Which is Betikara – Followed by the name of the child you sponsor. Like this example: “Betikara – Lanto” “Betikara – Andry’s Dialysis” “Betikara – General Donation” “Betikara – Building Fund” “Betikara – In Memory of ________________” The above examples are what individuals or churches will use most often. If you find that what you want to donate for is not listed above please write the reason for your donation on the memo line of the check. However, “Betikara” should be included first on the memo line.

Using “Three Chopt Church of Christ” without the word “Road” will also work for those of you who want to use “Bill Pay“. I was told that “Bill Pay” will only accept 32 characters. Writing “Three Chopt Church of Christ” is only 28 characters. Just be sure to put “Betikara” first in the memo (called “note” by some websites) area of the checks that will be sent to the Three Chopt Road Church of Christ.

Who?

God and You, the church in Madagascar, and homeless Malagasy children

Why?

Because they need a home, and because they need Jesus. “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” (James 1:27)“…go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20a) Purpose of Betikara: To educate Malagasy people (children and adults) to be spiritually and physically responsible, to God and to each other.

What?

A Three Phase Project

Phase I: Immediate Relief

Rent a house.
Register the home with the Malagasy government.

Phase II: A Place to Call Home

Provide spiritual training.

Phase III: Meeting Secondary Needs

We need your help now, to make this service for the Savior a reality. You can be helping Malagasy street kids become Jesus’ Kids!

How?

You can pray.

Without Him, we can do nothing. Praying is the most important thing you can do for this effort. Please pray that He may lead and provide, so that homeless Malagasy children can become Jesus Kids.

You can sponsor a child.

For $75.00 a month you can help feed, clothe, educate a child and provide for the medical needs of that child. We would like to encourage you, your church group or your congregation to sponsor a child.  We will help you get to know your child. You will receive progress reports via correspondence. You will also receive pictures of your child from time to time. If you do not want to sponsor a child for $75.00 a month you can also sponsor a child for $25.00 a month or $50.00 a month. Some of our children have three different sponsors that each contribute $25.00 a month. Just send us an e-mail message or postal message concerning your desire to sponsor and we will provide you with information on a child/children in need of sponsors.
