IMC Project Updates

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 Zimpeto Widows' Home Project Update

L46_0.JPGVovo Salima was delighted to join us at the Centre this year for Christmas lunch. She loved the singing and dancing and enjoyed the meal so much she did not want to go home. Just as she was leaving, one of our young boys (about 11 years old) appeared and said he wanted to give her some money. He has a gardening job and had just received his weekly amount. Although he did not know Vovo, when he saw her at the meal the Lord touched his heart and he wanted to bless her.

October 2013 Zimpeto Child Reintegration Program Update

The vision of our program is to maintain contact with existing family members of our children, with a view to one day enabling the family to receive the children back into their family. Some children don’t have family to reintegrate them, so we have to be resourceful in finding alternative solutions. In 2013 we have reintegrated a number of youth and children into different situations.

October 2013 Zimpeto Bible School Update

In this update we want to share with you a little bit of the great impact in the lives of the men and women who are able to come to the Zimpeto Bible School. Your financial support has both impacted and truly transformed the lives of many over the years.

This testimony is about the most recent term and the student’s active participation in daily activities at college and how it created an impact in their own lives and in the life of the people around them.
