IMC Missionary Updates

September 2020 Sarah Masson Update

This is an update like none other that I have done before. Since my last update in March 2020, all of my responsibilities at Iris Malawi have mostly come to a grinding halt. Yes, you guessed it right, COVID-19 is the reason for this particular season! As you know, visitor hospitality(international travel) and education are two of the major sectors hit worldwide, so it is no surprise that the people we serve in Malawi have been affected. Our young people are extremely worried about their education as they were unable to finish their last semesters work at school.

September 2020 David & Joanna Morrison Update

Just like parents all over the world who were suddenly faced with the challenge of homeschooling, we are no different except for the size of our family. On March 23rd, we suddenly found ourselves responsible for the continued education of 89 children and young adults. Since all schools were closed on that day, 30 secondary students and 9 college/university students made their way home to join our 50 primary school kids who live on the base fulltime. 

April 2020 David & Joanna Morrison Update

Wednesday night is busy in our house. David leads a Bible study for 9-12 year olds in the boys old room. He uses videos and drama to teach Bible stories, and plant seeds of truth. At the same time, I lead a youth Bible study in the living room. We have been enjoying an honest dialogue about matters of the heart. What keeps us from seeing God as he really is?  How can we get to know him? How can we replace fear with faith, as we destroy lies and live by the truth? As both groups collide before and after, we have a lovely moment of chaos and cheer.

October 2019 Sarah Masson Update

I have now been serving at the Iris Malawi base for 9 years. I went to Malawi (my second time), landing in September of 2010, intending to stay only 3 months. However, in those three months God gave me a dream about my newly born nephew suddenly being 5 years old, and one of our Malawian house parents telling me that I’d be there for 5 years. At that time I thought to myself ‘that’s crazy and highly unlikely’ : -). God had different plans, but had to reveal them to me little by little. If he had revealed the plan all at once, I may have passed out or been too overwhelmed to function!

October 2019 Anonymous Missionary - Asia Update

Again, because of the very sensitive nature of what our missionary in Asia is doing, we must limit what we share publically. We are delighted to say that the name and works of the Lord are being spread and the kingdom is being advanced in Asia!

Our missionary writes:

People are desperate for more, and when they come to us so very many accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour right away.
