April 2017 Sarah Masson Update

The last 6 months in Malawi have been really great. I was invited to share at the Bible school with a group of women from all over the country. We had such a great time sharing experiences of God’s love. By Holy Spirit’s leading, we prayed prayers of forgiveness, prayers of thankfulness, and prayers of rejoicing for what the Lord has done for each one of us in our lives. Joanna Morrison and I shared together of the miraculous nature of God’s creation.

April 2017 David & Joanna Morrison Family Update

Life in the Morrison household is still full of children, though two out of three Morrison children have flown the coop. Children come to our house to play Scrabble or Dutch Blitz, to read or borrow books from our library, to play with Play People or Lego, and to find encouragement. Some come with a cut that needs a bandage, a torn pair of shorts that needs mending, or a story that needs to be told. We enjoy their company, and count it a privilege to be a part of their various stories.

April 2017 Jason Dueck Update

Much has happened since the last time most of you heard from me. We have been blessed to see God responding to our prayers these last months. One of these prayers is for the Lord to raise up young people who love him and are willing to follow him. In January we held a missions camp at our base here in the interior. There were several local youth who participated, as well as some young people from Fortaleza. The missions camps that we run are intensive 3 to 5 day camps designed to teach about missions and to see God release or confirm callings in the lives of young people.

October 2016 Sarah Masson Update

Most people ask, “How’s it going there Sarah?” I find this question to be a bit overwhelming! I have several things flash through my mind but not many that I feel I can share due to their graphic nature.  Many stories and visuals that leave us a bit squeamish at the details provided.  I find myself wondering do people really want to know the truth of 'the third world' or is it better left unsaid and only reported on when there's mass casualties.  How do we truly love 'the one' in front of us and try to help on a larger scale to change and move deep seeded poverty?

October 2016 David & Joanna Morrison Family Update

The Morrison family continues to serve with Iris Malawi. The three who remain in Malawi are kept busy with 88 children. 33 of these are now attending 10 different secondary schools throughout the country. Five were selected to national schools which shows the excellent work that is happening at our Primary School on the base. All of our St .8 students passed and were selected to various schools.

October 2016 Bob & Betty Blanchette Update

It has been so good to return to Zimpeto after a season in Canada. It has been great to see all of our friends and the children, and the young  men and women that we work with.

Bob has been busy with the carpentry training program, building some doors and windows, a desk and a bench.They also  tore out the old play ground equipment on base. The children were not too happy! What they didn’t know was that a company was coming in to put up some new equipment shortly thereafter.
