October 2016 David & Joanna Morrison Family Update

The Morrison family continues to serve with Iris Malawi. The three who remain in Malawi are kept busy with 88 children. 33 of these are now attending 10 different secondary schools throughout the country. Five were selected to national schools which shows the excellent work that is happening at our Primary School on the base. All of our St .8 students passed and were selected to various schools.

June 2016 David & Joanna Morrison Family Update

Two out of 5 Morrisons have now taken up residence in Canada. This is so hard after 13 years of togetherness. Patrick and Daniel lived together this year in Burlington, and went opposite directions to school.  Patrick continued to study engineering at McMaster University and Daniel successfully completed his final year of high school at Kings' Christian Collegiate. We are so grateful for friends and family who welcome and feed and love on our boys when we are far away. Both boys will be at university this coming year, studying Mechanical Engineering.

There was a horrible disaster in Malawi this year. A flood wiped out several villages, entire buildings, houses; metal bridges were literally washed away. Babies drowned on the backs of mother’s who were trying to save them.  There was nothing left for thousands of people in Malawi. A desperate situation for many became a nightmare. Little children couldn’t find their parents. People were trapped on ant hills and grasping to tiny trees praying that they could hold on tight. Gardens all throughout the country were stripped of years of toiling the land.

September 2015 David & Joanna Morrison Family Update

The Morrisons have had a very exciting season. The Tour Divide 2015 was an epic adventure for David, Patrick, and Daniel. Training began two years ago, and escalated as the day of the race approached. David and Daniel were often up at 4:30 a.m. to get a ride in before a normal day of work in the office and school. Patrick’s training was mostly limited to the Wrestling Team at McMaster University, although, as soon as the snow was off the ground in Canada, he was out on his bike, stretching those leg muscles.  

April 2015 Sarah Masson Update

In Malawi there is a road system that is too well known. It requires you to slow down to a speed that feels like crawling, and if you been in Malawi for some time you will know that this is a sign of respect for a funeral. The grieving family will place tree branches on the road as a sign to slow down. I’m telling you this because nearly every time I’ve driven outside the base since the floods in January, I’ve needed to slow down because someone has died here around Nsanje District.

September 2014 Linda Currie Update

Hello everyone,

As I am sitting here thinking over the few months since I last shared with you, I am contemplating the rhythm to this life as it ebbs and flows from one situation to another, always to bring us to the place where we know the blessing of the Father who loves and cares for us.

The floods are in the past now and the people have moved on. Homes have been repaired or rebuilt. Neighbours and friends are helping each other and new relationships are being formed. New babies are being born and life continues.
