Iris Malawi, Bangula, Malawi
October 2013 - Iris Centre, Freetown, Sierra Leone
The Holy Spirit ignited Sue’s heart for mission when she went on two short-term trips, first to Guatemala in 2004, and then to Malawi in 2005. She felt the Lord’s call to ‘more’ and quickly sensed her heart and destiny being sealed in Africa. Sue left her home in Oakville, Ontario, with the blessing and support of her four grown children, and moved to Bangula, Malawi in June 2006.
Sue has a huge heart for children. Her education led her from working with the mentally challenged, back to training in the field of Early Childhood Education. For the past 16 years she has operated a home daycare centre.
“I will be overseeing the newly built children’s homes, as well as developing and teaching school to augment the existing education received. I look forward to also teaching parenting skills to the house parents of our children’s homes and to the pastors who come to the Bible school. I covet your prayers as I seek to learn the Chichewa language. My desire is to be an open conduit, so that the love of Jesus will touch the hearts and lives of those I serve.... May they see only Him, the One True Giver of Life Everlasting.”
Note: In October 2013, Sue moved to Sierra Leone to serve with Iris there. Please follow her transition via her regular update postings.
