IMC Missionary Updates

October 2018 David & Joanna Morrison Update

September is the month when temperatures climb considerably, and the trees are dropping their leaves.  Papaya trees are loaded with fruit, and winter maize stalks are standing tall and drying. There is a smoky quality to the air, as fields of sugar cane are being burned in preparation for harvest.  Just a couple weeks ago our sports camp was in full swing here at Iris and shouts and cheers could be heard above the whir of the sewing machines, as tailors sewed school uniforms for Iris Primary School.

October 2018 Jason Dueck Update

The last months have been a time of transition and change. Our base was set in a small village called Pie Monte. For some time we have felt led by the Lord to move our base to the small city of Choró, and did so in June. We spent the last few months in Pie Monte focusing on discipleship and preparing our church for our departure. We had the blessing of baptizing a few young people from our church; it was a very special and powerful moment. The youth in our church are growing in the Lord and taking on more responsibility. 

October 2018 Tony & Laurie-Ann Copple Update

We Copples have continued to nurture children while teaching at MasterPeace Academy, as well as leading three after school kids clubs and a leadership training group for Avian Park teens.  We took a road trip holiday to the Eastern Cape – much needed! After the winter school break (mid-June to mid-July), we arrived back at school to find not just two students, but six! Mpho continues to challenge us, since his mom has taken him off his ADHD meds, so he’s disruptive in class.  Please pray for him.

April 2018 Sarah Masson Update

It’s hard to explain and verbalize what life is like in this district of Malawi, but I will try to give you a glimpse into life here! Every day is fluid and you can start the day with a schedule of duties, but end the day having done a whole other set of more pressing, unplanned and urgent duties.

April 2018 Jason Dueck Update

Even though Brazil has a large evangelical population, there are still many areas that are ‘unreached’, where there are no local churches to disciple or share the good news about Jesus. One of our goals for 2018 is to bring the gospel to villages that are still unreached. We recently had the opportunity to go to one such village, Cafundó, which literally means ‘forsaken place’. Cafundó is hidden away on top of a mountain. This village is so out of the way that it was unknown to the government until 2011.

October 2017 Jason Dueck Update

God has been moving in the last six months and I’m excited to share a few of the areas we have seen him at work. As I mentioned in my last update, we were planning on starting a literacy course to help the many youth and adults who are illiterate. We started the course at the end of April and we have been encouraged to see these adults (some of them around 60 years old) learning to read and write. It is so enjoyable to see them excited about the new things that they are learning!
