Norfolk Christians George and Rosemary Willard are founders of a charity providing healthcare and education to vulnerable people in Uganda.
George and Rosemary are members of TEC in Taverham. They helped set up Africa With Love children's village in Uganda in 2007 and the project now has a health centre which recevies over 1,000 patients per month, plus there is a nursery, primary and high school which has over 700 children. There are over 100 children who board at the school during term time. Each Sunday already over 100 people attend the church together with the staff and boarders from the school.
George and Rosemary are passionate about sharing the gospel message and helping those in need. George attended Christ for the Nations in Dallas, Texas in the 1980s and for the past 22 years has been working and visiting 9 African countries.
The work of the charity is thriving, numerous staff members are employed and regular updates on developments are available from www.africawithlove.co.uk
The village people recently said they wanted to build their own church and immediately began to tythe and the building work commenced at the beginning of September. Rosemary said, "The local people are doing all the work themselves. In fact, the head builder, whose name is Angel, was a Muslim and did not want to accept Christianity but while building the church the Lord spoke to him. He has suffered ill health in the past but is stronger today through prayer."
