IMC Project Updates

April 2021 Zimpeto Community Infant Milk and Food Supplement Program Update

Infant Milk Supplement Program:

Delfa was admitted to the Community Infant Milk Program in 2020. She was the result of rape, and her mother refused to care. By her 5th day of life, she was malnourished, dehydrated, and had lost 0.27kg of her 3.1kg birth weight. Her mother’s sister-in-law took the baby into her home to care for her as her own, and named her Delfa, which means ‘royal first born’.


April 2021 Zimpeto Widows' Home Update

We are currently caring for 3 widows in the community. Rosalina (whom we have shared about with you before), once alone, abandoned by family, and unable to walk because of amputation to one of her legs, is deeply grateful and at peace, knowing that all of her food, hygiene needs, and social support needs are cared for. The woman who provides for much of Rosalina’s care by doing her cooking, cleaning, and washing, is completely blind. We are grateful to be able to care for this woman's needs as well.

September 2020 Zimpeto Widows' Home Update

We continue to oversee the care of widows in the community. Pictured here is Rosalina. This precious one is blind and lost a leg through amputation. Rosalina never had children, and her family members abandoned her years ago. This IMC project supplies the finances that guarantee Rosalina’s food, all of her hygienic needs, and pays for a woman who does Rosalina's cleaning, washing, and cooking.

September 2020 Zimpeto Bible School Update

From the beginning of the second quarter, 2020 has been a year of many changes caused by the recent global pandemic of COVID-19 that has affected not only Mozambique and Africa but also the whole world.

All educational institutions in the country had to stop on-site classes, and our students and teachers had to adapt to be able to adjust to this new reality. We have adopted distance learning classes by using well known digital platforms.

September 2020 Iris Malawi Update

So it is impossible for God to lie for we know that his promise and his vow will never change! And now we have run into his heart to hide ourselves in his faithfulness. This is where we find his strength and comfort, for he empowers us to seize what has already been established ahead of time—an unshakeable hope!  Hebrews 6:18 The Passion Translation.

September 2020 Zimpeto Sewing and Carpentry Program Updates

July 15th marked the second anniversary of the passing of our beloved IMC missionary Betty Blanchette. Betty began and oversaw the sewing project for many years. At the same time her husband Bob began and oversaw the carpentry project.

Both projects continue to be strong and active. Bob and Betty trained up wonderful leaders in their areas. Bob had planned to visit the base in June but had to postpone his travels for now because of the coronavirus pandemic.
