EMMANUEL CHRISTIAN SCHOOL LICENCE APPROVED
The official handing over of Emmanuel Christian School to the Free Presbyterian Mission Society Africa in January 2017 made it necessary for the school to apply for a licence to operate under the new owner.

This process was commenced in February 2017 and proved lengthy, time -consuming and expensive with some eighteen different types of documents to be produced for the application! These included approved plans from the local District Planning Committee and inspection reports from the District Environmental Officer, the District Health Inspector and the District Inspector of Schools.

Just over nine months later, we are delighted to report that the school licence has been granted and we want to thank all who prayed for and assisted us in this process.

The school licence gives permission to operate the school while upgrading facilities to procure full registration. We would value your continued support as we continue with this second stage.

REV. LYLE BOYD MINISTERING IN UGANDA
Our missionary to Beas de Segura in Spain, Rev. Lyle Boyd, arrived safely in Uganda on Saturday 2nd December and was able to conduct the prayer meeting that evening and the church service the following day.

Rev. Boyd will be supplying the pulpit at Emmanuel Church Nsaalu during the month of December, in the absence of Rev. Stephen Miller who is still in Northern Ireland on deputation. He will be responsible for the Lord’s Day service and weekly prayer meetings as well as helping Pastor Andrew with his ongoing studies.

If time permits, Rev. Boyd is also eager to engage in evangelism and some open-air preaching. We are grateful to our brother for giving up of his time and talents to assist at Emmanuel and we urge you to remember him in your prayers.

RECORD ATTENDANCE AT MISSIONARY COUNCIL WEEKEND
It has been the source of great encouragement to see the missionary vision of our denomination increase over these past few years. Never before have we had as many missionaries on the mission field, nor have we witnessed such enthusiasm among our congregations for the Great Commission. 

The Missionary Council Weekend has seen a steady increase in attendance. For five years our venue has been the Magherabuoy House Hotel, Portrush, where we have been looked after excellently. The accommodation, food, fellowship and missionary challenge have been second to none. 

In November 2017 we witnessed a record attendance with 112 people resident and many more joining us for the Saturday night Conference. We had to accommodate an overflow of residents in the Lodge Hotel, Coleraine. Some testified to it being ‘the best weekend ever.’ Maybe they have forgotten previous years, or perhaps the sentiment is just in keeping with the trend seen in the increased missionary burden of our churches. 

A PowerPoint presentation of the ministry of the Missionary Council was shown by the Chairman, Rev Park, on the Friday night. Saturday morning was ‘Question and Answers’ time, when some very pertinent and interesting questions were put to the panel. Challenging missionary reports were brought by Rev. and Mrs. Miller (Uganda), and three young men from Hebron ministered in song. 

Dr. Douglas was the guest conference speaker who brought a stirring message on the ‘FEW’ from the closing verses of Matthew chapter 9. This passage of scripture was uniquely and providentially emphasised in every meeting; a powerful example of the Lord directing our way. 

The residents joined the Worship Service in Hebron on the Sabbath morning where the Youth Fellowship ministered in song, and Rev. Park preached on 'Ask of Me, and I will give Thee the heathen for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession (Psalm 2:8).  Click Here to see more photos.

We praise God for His presence throughout the weekend and give Him the glory for all accomplished in our hearts.

ANDREW FOSTER ARRIVES IN UGANDA
After two flights, Dr Campbell and I arrived at Entebbe airport on Friday 3rd of November. It was about 2 clock in the afternoon and we were greeted by Miss McAfee and a comfortable Ugandan heat! With our bags packed onto the back of the ECS truck we headed towards Nsaalu. Having to make various stops along the way, we arrived at the school around midnight . The welcoming party was mostly in bed and so we enjoyed meeting everyone the next day! The people smile constantly, especially when we try to say their names or greet them with words in their own language.

I am thankful to the Lord for safe travels; a lovely group of people here at ECS and that the Lord has enabled me to settle in well!

God has answered prayer! Thanks to everyone for your support.
