Anglican Church ready to celebrate 170 years in Borneo

From Borneo-

The Anglican Church will kick off a year-long calendar of events to commemorate its 170th anniversary in Borneo this weekend.
Themed ‘Reaching Forward’, the events celebrate the arrival of Rev Dr Francis Thomas McDougall in Sarawak on June 29, 1848, to lead the Borneo Church Mission Institution.

“But this is not just about Francis McDougall. It is also about his wife Harriette and the countless other missionaries who came over the years and gave their lives for the cause of the Gospel. 
“Yet again, it isn’t just about the Gospel as the Anglican Church in Borneo has impacted every sphere of our lives. Throughout its history, the church here has been instrumental in the fields of education and healthcare.
