Nichols Notes cont.
encountered among suppressed people groups is a sense that they are not in charge of their
lives. Not simply that they are being controlled, but that they really aren’t responsible for
what happens to them. Our theory is that since their identity is tied up in their suppressor,
it causes them to identify their suppressor as the one responsible for their lives. Thus, I am
not responsible for what happens to me—the person I depend on is responsible. This dis-
placed sense of responsibility makes it difficult for people to act on their own behalf in
areas of importance. As a result, many people in this situation attempt to create a sem-
blance of control through self-gratification instead of attempting the seemingly impossible
task of genuinely taking control of their lives. Temporary pleasurable feelings take the
place of real self-management..
Ironically, as long as the suppressor remains, this situation is livable. I can get
along in life, as long as I have this second person (who is responsible for me) telling me
what to do. I may not like that they are in charge, but I am accustomed to it, and have
learned to live within the arrangement to the best of my ability. Once the suppressor is
removed, however (whether by an external liberator, or by my own rebellion), things get
tough. Now I discover that I don’t know who I am. In addition, I am accustomed to having
a suppressor, and all my habits are oriented around that end. It makes a tragic sense, then,
that many people form abusive relationships return to their abuser or end up in similarly
abusive situations later. On a large scale, it means that a suppressed culture will have a
tendency to look for a new “substitute” for their old oppressor. This is not necessarily a
conscious decision—it is a consequence of habit.
This is a tragic cycle--one that is self-reinforcing once started. Impressions and
repeated behavior, over time, become habits. These habits, over time, spread throughout
the culture. Habits repeated throughout the culture are eventually seen as normative. Thus,
the culture itself can serve to reinforce this sense of helplessness and displaced identity.
The people of such a culture may lament their position or think it perfectly acceptable, but
at the end of the day, it is just the way things are. It is this type of self-perpetuating system
of psychological entrapment that we are trying to address in our work. We have found
that, while it takes time, if the underlying presuppositions and habits are addressed, it is
possible to break the cycle. Jason

March has been a month full of blessings. The month
started with the clutch going out of my pick-up while traveling
to churches. My truck had 288800 miles on it and this was the
first clutch. The blessing was it happened while I had a sched-
ule opening, and I was in a place where there were certified mechanics that could
(and did) put me at the front of the service line. They had my truck out in three
days (they had to wait a day on parts),. Thanks to our brother and sister in Christ
who stepped forward and offered to pay for the repair. I had the opportunity to
spend some time with my kids in Oklahoma during the repair time.
I also had the chance to work with one of our board members, bringing him up to
speed on the latest updates to the material we are using.
When I got back to America in July, my goal was to spend enough time
with the churches I was visiting that they would have a comprehensive under-
standing of just what IRI does. This has been a blessed investment of time. New
doors of opportunity have opened up for IRI. The most significant thing that has
transpired is the deeper development of the relationship between IRI and its sup-
Mozambique is going well. Leonard is holding ABC thinking workshops
daily. He has been focusing his work on local Pastors at their request. George
continues to work with new churches when his time from his regular job permits.
Tito continues working with the municipal and his church. The men of Mozam-
bique are working hard to develop churches. Some pastors from Nacala who had
gone through the Insight Seminar in 2011 came to Chimoio to meet with Leonard
and work with him on the coaching class. Because of this meeting Leonard and I
will be traveling to Nacala when I return to hold a seminar and coaching work-
There are some locations, however, that need some investors to help the
nationals develop business and social programs. This will allow the nationals to
develop employment and earn an income that will allow them to support their lo-
cal church. IRI will be sending out a booklet to our partners to give them an over-
view of the accomplishments and needs of ourselves and the nationals we are
working with. If you do not get a copy of the booklet and want one call 307-277-
4639 or e mail Velma at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am only about halfway through my church visits for this year. I have
until the first week of May before I start preparing to head for Mozambique. I
leave America on the 15th
of May, and will be gone through Feb 2015. We are
currently planning for 2015, and we want to come to your church and share this
work in detail with you. Call 307-277-4639 to schedule a visit.
Till next month,
Blessings to all of you.
