The Eunuch of Queen Candace.

Commemorated January 4 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

The Apostle Philip baptized this negro eunuch (Acts 8:26-40). After his baptism, the eunuch returned home and began to teach about Christ. He was the first apostle of the Faith among the negroes of Ethiopia. He died a martyr and was counted worthy of the Kingdom of God.
