Angela Russell (left) from Ballymena and Emily Henry (right) from Larne have been appointed as TeachBeyond staff representatives in Northern Ireland. Joining them in the photo is Liz Hutchinson (centre), Recruitment and Personnel Manager for the UK.
For the last 11 years, Angela, the mum of four, has worked as a classroom assistant in Carniny Primary School. Angela and Emily will promote the work of the organisation by visiting churches to speak about what it does and encourage people to pray for the projects that it runs.
The two also will recruit Christian teachers to serve within the mission in various roles. Longer term, they are looking forward to visiting some of the projects operated by TeachBeyond.
Angela said, “I think what excites me is the fact that it is a growing organisation and people are being reached not only with education, but also by the power of the Holy Spirit. Children at all levels of society are being reached. That includes wealthier children who can afford to pay to go to school as well as very poor children and refugees – young people who have suffered in the most awful ways.”
