A bronze sculpture of Amy Carmichael, the famous missionary who established the Dohnavur Fellowship in India, was unveiled on Saturday (16th December) at a private ceremony at Hamilton Road Presbyterian Church in Bangor.
Amy was born on 16th December 1867 in Millisle County Down and later moved to Japan and then India to serve as a missionary. In 1901 she set up the Dohnavur Fellowship to provide a safe home for young girls and the organisation still exists today providing care and education for around 120 children as well as 60 senior citizens. Those that grew up in Dohnavur stay on to look after the next generation so there are currently between 250 and 300 people in the family, as they like to refer to the residents. –Worldwide Mission
