IMC Missionary Updates

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 Sarah Masson Update

There was a horrible disaster in Malawi this year. A flood wiped out several villages, entire buildings, houses; metal bridges were literally washed away. Babies drowned on the backs of mother’s who were trying to save them.  There was nothing left for thousands of people in Malawi. A desperate situation for many became a nightmare. Little children couldn’t find their parents. People were trapped on ant hills and grasping to tiny trees praying that they could hold on tight. Gardens all throughout the country were stripped of years of toiling the land.

September 2015 David & Joanna Morrison Family Update

The Morrisons have had a very exciting season. The Tour Divide 2015 was an epic adventure for David, Patrick, and Daniel. Training began two years ago, and escalated as the day of the race approached. David and Daniel were often up at 4:30 a.m. to get a ride in before a normal day of work in the office and school. Patrick’s training was mostly limited to the Wrestling Team at McMaster University, although, as soon as the snow was off the ground in Canada, he was out on his bike, stretching those leg muscles.  

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.
