ASHLAND, Ky. – Amy Compston of Amy For Africa will be sharing her “Grace Story” with an international and national television audience on the Christian Broadcasting Network’s 700 Club on Thursday,
The CBN team filmed at Amy’s house and in Central Park with husband Chris and children Bailee, Bear and Jarek earlier this month. They were in Ashland the entire day as Amy shared her heartfelt story of overcoming 14 years of drugs and alcohol abuse and becoming a missionary to Uganda where AFA is building a Christian school.
Compston says her recovery from addiction is completely attributed to becoming a true follower of Jesus Christ seven years ago.
“It’s such an honor to have them come here and film my ‘Grace Story,’’’ said Compston, who has shared her story literally hundreds of times since starting the Amy For Africa ministry in 2013. “I’ve been so blessed to be able to share my story of redemption to so many people. But only God can open doors like this one. Our prayer at AFA is that God will be glorified in everything we do.”
Construction on the AFA Christian Academy started earlier this month. The first phase of the school will cost $561,000 with 20 percent already paid. Completion date for the first phase is January 2021.
It will take five years to complete the $1.1 million Christian school in Njeru, which is near Jinja. The AFA Christian Academy, with about 85 students, is currently operating in a house near the building project.
Amy For Africa started in 2013, nearly a year after Amy surrendered completely to Jesus in the summer of 2012. The organization helped start six Christian schools in the Moyo area of Uganda before God called them to the Njeru area in 2016
