Jane Lahai is the head of this school for young girls named in honor of missionary June Hartranft, a lifetime missionary from our church who served there from 1945 until her premature passing in 1965. The school enrolls over 500 girls from the area and is a boarding school for a number of them, providing room and board as well as an education. First Church's support includes providing school supplies and some regular meals as well as special projects like the new mattresses that you see pictured here and below. Band instruments for a school band were also provided by First Church as well as a bus that you will see in the photos below.
Matt and Jenn Irvine and their children (Malachi, Arielle, and Luke) have been involved in cross-cultural church planting in multi-cultural, multi-faith British South Asian neighbourhoods for 20+ years. At present, in partnership with local leaders, they are seeking to grow a local community of Jesus-followers in north west London (Harrow-Brent).
They’d invite you to pray the following Bible verse for them and their friends, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13).
