IMC Project Updates

April 2019 Southern Malawi Ministry Centre Update

October was an intense month with lots of challenges. We had some major challenges at one of the 13 different secondary schools our children attend. We had to make significant changes in the arrangement of our girls’ houses, but all was eventually resolved. David, together with other leaders, were forced to do some quick work in hiring new teachers for the Iris Africa Primary School. We had found some excellent teachers at the beginning of the year, but two of those new teachers bailed early in the year. Interviewing is time consuming and quite difficult.

April 2019 Zimpeto Bible School Update

 “Pastor, when I came here to the bible school I had been living with my partner since 2007, thinking everything was fine. But I was challenged by the word of God and now that I'm back for the second level I have decided to get officially married. I would like to invite the staff of the bible school to attend my wedding". These are the words of Philip, a second level student who is currently getting ready to get married at the end of this month.

April 2019 Zimpeto Child Reintegration Program Update

Reintegration continues to be integral in the continuum of care of children with complex social and medical needs. The team is responsible for many issues in an attempt to uphold the rights of the child.

The team maintains home visits for children who need out of home care. Home, social and health assessments are crucial to the evaluation of the needs of both the family and the child, keeping in mind that the outcome of the assessments might see the child accepted into Zimpeto children’s crisis centre.

April 2019 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

We have been feeding children (and families) in northern Mozambique for more than 12 years through our IMC feeding program. Over that time, we have fed thousands of children tens of thousands of meals! And only God himself knows how many of these young and vulnerable children's lives have been saved as a result!

But we do know about two in particular for sure.

April 2019 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

When we began our ministry among the poor in northern Mozambique in 2005, we could never in our most optimistic dreams have foreseen the report we are presenting here today. To God be all the praise and glory!!

14 girls and 4 boys in Grade 8;

18 girls and 2 boys in Grade 9;

6 girls and 3 boys in Grade 10;

2 girls and 3 boys in Grade 11;

and 4 girls and 1 boy in Grade 12.

October 2018 Southern Malawi Ministry Centre Update

In August we welcomed church members from all over Malawi to our Bangula Conference. It was wonderful to see mature church leadership taking responsibility for the conference. For this reason it was the easiest conference yet for our senior Malawian leaders Timothy, Ali, and Bauleni to manage. People contributed food and finances, and were responsible for their own transport to and from the conference. We appreciated the wonderful contribution of other Iris leaders from Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
