Emmanuel College students Sheryl Johnson and Kelly Colwell have been appointed by The United Church of Canada to serve as overseas personnel interns with the National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP). The NCCP is an ecumenical fellowship of ten Protestant and non–Roman Catholic churches and nine ecumenical organizations working for unity and common Christian witness. It represents 12 million adherents. NCCP provides opportunities for the churches to be deeply engaged in the struggle of the poor and the oppressed for justice, peace, defence of human rights and the integrity of creation. Sheryl and Kelly will be placed in both Manila and Mindanao, serving from January 18 to May 15, 2012.
