IMC Missionary Updates

October 2016 Jen Jewett Update

Since my last update much effort has been made to bring routine back to our kids and families in the slum. They know to expect us every Tuesday and Thursday. That we'll pull up in our big blue tuk tuk loaded with toys and games and snacks, and families come to us with their questions and concerns. It feels just like home there now, and we are so happy to be there every week.

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.

June 2016 David & Joanna Morrison Family Update

Two out of 5 Morrisons have now taken up residence in Canada. This is so hard after 13 years of togetherness. Patrick and Daniel lived together this year in Burlington, and went opposite directions to school.  Patrick continued to study engineering at McMaster University and Daniel successfully completed his final year of high school at Kings' Christian Collegiate. We are so grateful for friends and family who welcome and feed and love on our boys when we are far away. Both boys will be at university this coming year, studying Mechanical Engineering.

June 2016 Don & Elizabeth Kantel Update

Iris has changed dramatically over the 12 years Don and Elizabeth have served as missionaries in Mozambique…as has the country itself.

Today, Iris is facing the future as a diverse and well-organized missions organization…still under the inspiring leadership of its Founders, Heidi and Rolland Baker, but with a leadership structure that includes a generation of younger missionaries in their 20’s and 30’s. Don and Elizabeth are among a handful of “veterans” who see their role as helping the younger generation take their rightful place in leadership for the future.

June 2016 Bob & Betty Blanchette Update

"We are in the process of getting ready to return to Mozambique. We have everything in order and will soon be sending away for our visas. It seems that every year we come back home not knowing if we will return to Mozambique but when spring comes along we start planning our return. We are leaving from Detroit on August 15 and will return on December 15.

We will be working in Zimpeto this year and I’m looking forward to training boys again. Betty is also looking forward to working with the girls in the sewing room."
