March 22, 2023 - Flood Update in Malawi

God, you’re such a safe and powerful place to find refuge! You’re a proven help in time of trouble— more than enough and always available whenever I need you. So we will never fear even if every structure of support were to crumble away. We will not fear even when the earth quakes and shakes, moving mountains and casting them into the sea. For the raging roar of stormy winds and crashing waves cannot erode our faith in you.

Psalm 46 1-3 TPT.


March 14, 2023 - Major Flooding in southern Malawi

Flooding in Malawi - March 14, 2023

Cyclone Freddy brought devastation to the Iris Zimpeto base in southern Mozambique in early February, and has now cycled back around, causing mass flooding throughout southern Malawi (home to Iris Malawi), just ahead of the harvest season. Crops were strong this year and desperately needed for ongoing food shortage crisis, from last year's floods.

Below is a note from David Morrison (Director of Iris Malawi) from earlier today:

February 2023 - Flooding in southern Mozambique.

It's the wet season in Mozambique, and farmers rely on the rains that come rain to fill tanks and soak the dry soil. Last week, on Wednesday, February 8th, it began to rain, and in 48 hours, the Maputo province received three months' worth of rain.The roads flooded, bridges washed away, houses were engulfed by water, outside toilets were swept away, walls collapsed, and lives were lost.
