“We have come to worship him!” Matthew 2:2
It was our second morning in Toliara. Just before 6 a.m., everyone on the cathedral compound was making their way silently to the cathedral. The sun is already warm as we join them. Once inside we scatter to quiet corners around the building. A hymn is announced and all sing, some in harmony, and the building fills with praise. After 10 minutes of singing, silence once more descends and all open their Bibles and read. In the last 10 minutes the leader calls us to quiet prayer: adoration, confession, thanksgiving and intercession before ending with a concluding prayer.
