IMC Missionary Updates

April 2015 Sarah Masson Update

In Malawi there is a road system that is too well known. It requires you to slow down to a speed that feels like crawling, and if you been in Malawi for some time you will know that this is a sign of respect for a funeral. The grieving family will place tree branches on the road as a sign to slow down. I’m telling you this because nearly every time I’ve driven outside the base since the floods in January, I’ve needed to slow down because someone has died here around Nsanje District.

March 2015 Don & Elizabeth Kantel Update

Adversity comes in many forms: natural, human, and spiritual. In the Western world, with its history of Christian influence in social and personal values, there is a degree of what’s sometimes called “common grace” that seems to protect societies and nations from wide-scale extremes of adversity. But Mozambique has no such history of Christian influence in culture and society. And that is profoundly evident as missionaries seek to establish a beachhead for the gospel for the first time in the nation’s history. Recurring natural calamities set back many attempts to move the country forward.

October 2014 Jason Dueck Update

I want to take this opportunity to bring you all up to date about the rest of my time in Nepal, what I am currently doing, and my plans for the near future. My last update was in May, and in that update I shared about what God was doing in a remote region called Humla. I was in Nepal until the end of July and there are a few more stories that I would now like to share.

October 2014 Bob & Betty Blanchette Update

We are happy to be back in Zimpeto and all is going well!

We have the carpentry shop at Marracuene up and running, have made four windows, and will be delivering them tomorrow morning.

Emilio and Bob are working with three boys, Antonio, Betinho, and Santo. They are there to learn how to make windows and doors. Emilio and Bob were out there last week getting things ready and the boys started on Monday of this week. They are very eager to learn. It is our goal to be able to make windows and doors for the community, which will also help to cut down expenses in the workshop.
