IMC Missionary Updates

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."

June 2016 Jason Dueck Update

Greetings from Brazil!

It is time for an update! The last few months have been very full and I would like to take some time to share with you what has been going on and what God has been doing. I do apologize that I have not done a better job in keeping all of you updated, but my internet situation has been quite difficult.

June 2016 Jen Jewett Update

Almost everything has changed since my last update! Everything except the kids we work with. In December we had to close the doors of our centre and let go of several of our Khmer staff due to lack of funding. So now we are working several times a week in the slums and on the streets where our children live.

September 2015 Jason Dueck Update

Much has happened in the last six months! We held our first missions school from March until the end of May this past spring, and this was the first Harvest School of Missions held in Fortaleza, Brazil. We had students from various parts of Brazil, the United States, England, Germany and Australia. We were so blessed to have 25 students who were hungry for Jesus! There were many wonderful times of worship where we experienced the presence of God in such a powerful way.

September 2015 Jen Jewett Update

The majority of the past 6 months have been spent in the routine of working with our kids at our day center. We've been enjoying finding the rhythm of having the kids come each day, working out all the knots, and figuring out how to make things run as smoothly as possible. For me, going to the center is the highlight of my week. I love helping the kids brush their teeth, watching them as they progress learning how to read and write their alphabet and the look of confidence on their face when they know they've got it.
