TAMANA: At Home in Africa
Written by Patricia McGregor, Associate Missionary
Reviewed by Kate Ulrich, SAMS Communications Coordinator
This memoir of Patricia (Patsy) McGregor’s return to Madagascar with her husband, Todd, to plant the Diocese of Toliara (“TOO-liar”) describes Patsy’s difficult journey to find God’s purpose for her in an impoverished community. She organizes her experiences according to a Celtic model of evangelism which aided her: go to the people, live among them, learn from them, love them, start with what they know, and build on what they are. The stories of the Malagasy people, their rich, community-centered culture, and their prayerful thirst for God’s word will give you a new perspective on Christ’s church. Patsy’s story of becoming tamana – happily settled, at home – in Madagascar, will expand your imagination for how God can shepherd you in His kingdom, and what it truly means to be home.
Tamana: At Home in Africa is Patricia McGregor’s third of four memoirs. Be sure to check them out at our book signing event (details below)!
