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.

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.  

October 2018 Zimpeto Carpentry & Sewing Training Program Update

Bob and Betty Blanchette have served the Lord in Zimpeto since 2007. Bob established the carpentry workshop and Betty the sewing program. Bob and Betty were both full time for a number of years until they decided to spend more time with their family. Over the last years they were at Zimpeto 3 to 6 months per year. Their main focus was training and loving youth, many who grew to love them like a Mom and Dad.

October 2018 Zimpeto Child Reintegration Program Update

A  Reintegration Story:

Moisais Ngungane came to the Zimpeto centre in 2000 because he was an orphan and no one in his family could care for him. He lived in the centre until 2004, when he was chosen to go and live in a new project that a missionary had set up in a suburb called Machava. This was a house for older youth with a vision to prepare them for life in the community.
