REV NOEL KELLY IS CALLED HOME
It was with sadness that we learnt of the sudden home call of Rev. Noel Kelly, who with his wife Stella, founded the Emmanuel Christian School and Church in Nsaalu, Uganda. Rev. Kelly, who was eighty years of age, passed away in hospital on 12th July 2022.

On behalf of the Free Presbyterian Mission Board, I would like to convey our Christian sympathy to his wife Stella, their son and daughter and the entire family circle. We assure them of our prayers at this time of mourning. We sorrow but not as those without hope.

We thank God for Noel’s labours, along with his wife Stella, to pioneer the work at Emmanuel. They sowed those first seeds in ground which was hard and barren and God was pleased to bless their labours as the work grew, step by step. Souls were won to Christ amongst the young and old.

I am reminded of the words of the Saviour in John 4:38 when I think about the start of the witness in Emmanuel. “I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.”

Despite all of the challenges, these two pensioners left England, to start a work for God in Uganda and we have the privilege today to take that work forward under the name of the Free Presbyterian Church.

I know that Noel and Stella faithfully continued to support and pray for Emmanuel School and it was their delight to hear that the work was progressing and that souls were coming to Christ. The seed sown by them is still bearing fruit unto the glory of God.

Rev. Kelly has been taken from this scene of time to his eternal reward. He rests from his labours, but his works do follow. May the Lord continue to add lively stones unto the foundation which he laid.

Rev 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

MODERATOR VISITS KENYA
The Moderator, Rev John Armstrong, had the opportunity to visit the work of the Free Presbyterian Mission Society Africa in Kenya at the end of May 2022. He travelled with Rev Ian Harris, and Mr Alastair Hamilton, Mission Board Chairman and Treasurer. This was the first return trip to Kenya for the Mission Board since the travel restrictions were imposed due to Covid, so there was much to do and see.

Over the two weekends, the men took part in three special services to officially constitute the Glory Bible Churches in Nyaporo, Shimo La Tewa and Tantana. These were significant steps in the development of the new Glory Bible Church denomination in Kenya and were a real encouragement to both visitors and members. Please pray for these churches as they now take the next steps to appoint elders, officebearers, and call pastors.

The two ministers also conducted a Pastor's Conference in Kakamega. Over two days, there were forty pastors and church workers in attendance from both Kenya and Uganda. The men also had the opportunity to visit the recently formed ‘Early Child Development Centre’ at Nyaporo Church and also the Youth work and Sunday school in Kakamega. Click Here to see more photos.

Thanks to Rev Patterson and his wife Alison, who along with the local pastors arranged the events. We would ask you to pray for the Pattersons as they have returned home for a break over the summer months.
