Matt comes to Iris from his ‘forever’ home in Markham, Ontario. Being raised in a Christian home, he grew up surrounded by the knowledge of Christ. His own faith walk was heavily influenced and challenged over years of both attending and th
en giving leadership at a Christian camp. Matt did post-secondary studies in the field of building renovation and construction engineering, and since graduating has been operating his own renovation business.
In May 2004 Matt went on a short-term trip to Bangula, Malawi to help with a building project. It was there that he truly saw the hand of God at work. After returning home he soon sensed the Lord calling him back to this mission field. Though he never thought he would serve overseas for any length of time, Matt has learned that in prayer and attentiveness to the Lord’s leading, things open up that one might never have otherwise imagined!
Matt moved to Malawi in January 2006. His primary involvement as ‘projects manager’ will be to coordinate local teams and give oversight and direction to several Iris building projects which are planned for development in 2006. Matt will also be involved in local outreach, assist in some of the teaching at the bible school and love and be loved by the children that have recently become family at Iris Bangula’s newly developed children’s home. “I am excited to serve in whatever ways I can, and look forward to seeing what God will do over this next year.”
