IMC Project Updates

April 2018 Southern Malawi Ministry Centre Update

The other day I took a walk in the back property where we have planted hundreds of trees over the last year. There are trees at all different stages, from tiny seedling to fully mature. Each tree must be cared for according to its present needs. The littlest ones can’t survive without regular watering and weeding. The more mature trees can use their established root systems to find the nutrients that are required.

April 2018 Zimpeto Carpentry & Sewing Training Program Update

Zimpeto Carpentry Program:

IMC has been supporting the Zimpeto carpentry program for many years. The list of ‘things’ made is huge - including school desks, garden furniture, book shelves, windows and doors, cupboards, shoe racks, storage boxes, kitchen cupboards and more. But the real gift of the program is seeing youth trained, developing a skill that will carry them forward for many years to come.

April 2018 Zimpeto Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

Infant Milk Supplement Program:

We would like to highlight to you little El Shaddai, who just recently joined our milk supplementation program. She is one of the many babies we have the privilege to helping each week. El Shaddai's mom needed help because she was unable to produce breast milk and had no means to buy formula for her young baby; she was feeding the baby mashed up crackers and water. El Shaddai is still very young, and the essential nutrients found in milk are so important in early development.

April 2018 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

Our project is currently supporting, in whole or in large part, well over 70 young people who are attending secondary school or pursuing vocational training. This is an amazing statistic, given that preceding generations of these children's families would never have attended secondary school or, in most cases, even completed primary school.

These young people are all committed Christians and are intentionally pursuing the Lord's plan for their individual lives. Many are also quite bold in sharing their own faith with family members and friends.

April 2018 Children's Feeding Program In Northern Mozambique Update

One of our most important children's feeding programs is the regular plate of hot beans and rice provided for the 500-plus poor village children who attend the Saturday discipleship program at our Mieze "Village of Love."

In the past, due to the high cost of the beans, these hungry kids have received mostly rice and only a tiny serving of beans. The kids are grateful for the rice because it's something warm and filling in their tummies; but the beans provide the protein, and we haven't been able to offer much of that in the past.

December 2017 Stop For The One - Canada: Child Sponsorship Program Update

We are currently supporting 140 children in whole or in part in our Noviane and Mieze children's centres and in the surrounding villages. And all these children are connected with supporting sponsors in the Western world through one or more sponsorship programs. These programs include Iris Canada's "Stop for the One--Canada" (which provides Canadian tax receipts).

October 2017 Widows' Home Update

One of the great blessings of working with the poor is to stand alongside real ‘widows’, elderly people with nothing to do, no family, physically and mentally weak, and truly pour out love on them. That is why the bible says it is pure religion. This is not true only here in Mozambique.

Salimina is a widow we have been taking care of for many years. We are trying hard to find family, as Salimina is lonely and wants company. We are considering moving her to a home for the elderly, a quality facility in the same area she is in now, where she will have company.

October 2017 Zimpeto Child Reintegration Program Update

A big thank you for the continued financial support of the reintegration program. Without the program the centre would become an outdated dinosaur. Reintegration is the cog in the wheel that keeps children from stagnating in an institution. Our belief is that God created families and he hasn’t yet uncreated them; family is the best place for children to be loved and to grow. Hence we have a revolving door of children coming in being rehabilitated, supporting the family, and returning the children to their families.
