Sunday, October 14, St. Matthew’s welcomes the Rt. Rev. Dr. Todd McGregor as Guest Preacher at both the 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. services. The Rt. Rev. Dr. Todd McGregor and the Rev. Dr. Patsy McGregor have been serving in the mission field since 1991 in church planting, health care, theological education, managing a retreat and conference center, building churches, schools and a Cathedral, providing educational scholarships and leadership development in both Kenya and Madagascar.
Currently, Todd and Patsy live in the coastal city of Toliara in southwestern Madagascar, where Todd serves as the first Anglican Bishop in the Diocese of Toliara and plays a significant role in the Province as the Chair of Mission and Evangelism for the Anglican Church of the Indian Ocean. Patsy serves as a Diocesan priest, hosts pilgrimages and missionary teams to Madagascar, leads local ministries focusing on children’s education and empowering women’s development. She is the author of many books and has co-written a Christian musical, Miaraka: A Time to Dance which has been performed internationally and has also been translated and performed in Malagasy.
In conjunction with People Reaching People, Inc. (PRP), Patsy and Todd serve the people of the Diocese of Toliara through engaging partners in evangelism, education, and economic development. (PRP was formed by the McGregors and several of their supporters in 2007.) The Diocese of Toliara, is one of the poorest areas in one of the poorest countries in the world. Even though the population faces chronic poverty, famine, malnutrition and has limited infrastructure, health care and economic opportunity, the Diocese of Toliara experiences steady growth. In 2007, only 11 churches and 300 Anglican worshippers were in the area. Now there are over 80 churches and 8,000 parishioners in the Diocese. The work of the McGregors and PRP in the name of Christ provides transformation and hope, all to the Glory of God.
