IMC Project Updates

September 2014 Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

Angelo, Antonio, and Abel, a set of triplets, began with our milk program at 6 weeks of age. Their weights were all well below the WHO -3Z score for their ages.

Over the last six weeks, as they have consistently received the milk supplements, all 3 of them have gained a little more than one and a half kilograms each.

They are so beautiful!!  Thanks to IMC for your support with this program.


September 2014 Zimpeto Widows' Home Project Update

Vovo Salimina has a new helped named Flora, who lives very close by.  Flora comes to work with her young children, and Vovo enjoys their company. With IMC’s extra funding, we were able to put a back door in her house, which gives Vovo easier access to her outside bathroom.  Vovo is pleased that she does not have far to go now, as walking is painful and difficult for her. We also gave her a solar lamp – a real blessing, as she was using an oil lamp that was difficult for her to light. We had been talking with a friend about buying a solar lamp, but did not know where to get one from.

April 2014 Southern Malawi Ministry Centre Update

Along with the new 2014 year came the beginning of many activities at Iris Malawi. The Bible school hosted a month long program only for women, followed by a fourth year pastor student class who returned to finish their leadership training. Iris secondary school youth headed back to their respective boarding schools in Blantyre and the children on base continued their year of learning at the Iris Primary School. The production fields on base were planted and then with the sufficient rains, yielded a healthy harvest of cow peas.

April 2014 Northern Mozambique Orphan-Village Projects Update

1.    In response to protracted rains and severe flooding in March, many caring friends of Iris have been contributing to our effort to assist poor villagers who’ve lost their homes and belongings. Through our churches in Pemba and Mieze, efforts are underway to repair or replace lost dwellings and to comfort and provide for those who have suffered most.  Many, many whole families have come to the Lord as their hearts have been touched by the compassion of Jesus demonstrated through his people, both here and abroad!

April 2014 Children's Feeding Program In Northern Mozambique Update

Our October 2013 Update provided the most current information about the various ways in which, through your gifts to IMC, you are helping defeat poverty and suffering among poor children and families in our care in Northern Mozambique. Additionally, however, in conjunction with Joyce Meyer Ministries, IMC is additionally funding two large and important food programs for needy village children near the Iris Pemba Base.
