EMMANUEL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL. The Belfast Newsletter is one of the world’s oldest newspapers, first published in 1737. On Monday past it carried an extensive, and colourful, article on Emmanuel Christian School in Uganda, operated by the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster.
The school principal is Noreen McAfee from Ballymoney FPC, ably assisted by Andrew and Hannah Foster from Comber FPC. There are currently 393 students. There are also a number of local teachers.
The work was started with 16 pupils in 2002 by Rev. Noel Kelly. In 2014 he asked the Free Presbyterian Church to take over the work. After several visits to assess the situation the FPC officially took over on April 30, 2017. The immediate needs were to get electricity and clean water into the complex. Two major boreholes yielded water, and a work party from Ulster installed the electrical power. Like the rest of the world Uganda is under lockdown, but the staff are using the time to get food etc. to the needy. Do pray for the staff and students.
