JOY GILLESPIE SENT FORTH TO NEPAL
A special Sending Forth service was held for Miss Joy Gillespie in Armagh Free Presbyterian Church on Thursday 29th June 2017. Miss Gillespie who has laboured faithfully in Spain for eighteen years is soon to take up a new field of service in Nepal.

A very encouraging number were present for the historic occasion which included many of Miss Gillespie’s family and friends, members of the Mission Board and Missionary Council and also members of several congregations from across the province.

The meeting was led by Rev Ian Harris, the Chairman of the Mission Board, who also read the Scriptures and led in the special prayer commending Miss Gillespie to the Lord for her labours in Nepal. The Missionary to Nepal, Rev Wesley Graham, led in the opening prayer. The minister of the Armagh Church, Rev David McMillan, paid tribute to Miss Gillespie’s surrender to the call of God. At Miss Gillespie’s request Mrs Ruth MacRoberts ministered in song. The Mission Board Treasurer, Mr Alastair Hamilton, made a presentation to Miss Gillespie. Photos are available to view in the Gallery.

The Chairman of the Missionary Council, Rev David Park, brought a very challenging message on ‘the Faithful servant of Christ’ from Matthew chapter 25.The closing prayer was offered by Mission Board member Mr David Aiken.

There was a very good spirit in the meeting and a very generous offering was taken for Miss Gillespie’s support.

WATER IN UGANDA
We are pleased to report that the borehole drill work on our site has progressed very well, and water has been struck. The drilling rig arrived on Monday and the work commenced, overseen by Mr Eric Graham from our Lisburn Church.

It was a slow process in the early stages, with repeated mechanical issues and difficulties with the drill getting jammed by small stones and shale. By Thursday, the men had drilled about 40 meters before getting to the water table. They are now lining the borehole with slitted pipes to ensure that the walls remain intact, and then they will drill a slightly narrower last section down below the water table.

Meanwhile, some men are building the tank stand which will hold two 5000 litre tanks at the top of the site, giving gravity fed water to the main buildings. Others are building the generator house for the pumping equipment. More photos have been added to the Gallery.

We thank the Lord for His provision and for the success of this work, which will make such a difference to the daily lives of the children and workers at Emmanuel Christian School.

END OF TERM FOR WORK IN SCHOOLS
It was good to finish off this term of school assemblies by visiting a brand new school - namely Millennium IPS situated between Carryduff and Saintfeld. Despite some setbacks and cancelations throughout the year, we have still been able to conduct around 130 assemblies and SU classes. We also have over 50 bookings already pencilled in for the new term in September (DV).

Do please remember us as we move into the summer work with Holiday Bible Weeks in Mourne, Ballymena, Ballygowan and Mount Merrion during the month of July. May the Lord work in the hearts of the children that attend and may many be drawn savingly onto Him.
