15 weeks of hard work, a lot of learning and tons of fun has finally come to an end. Today we officially graduated! It was such a wonderful day. I enjoyed every minute of it. We sang songs of worship to our King who made this all possible. We celebrated with friends and family. We were sent off into the world more equipped for His work and ready to shine the light in us!
This is my official transcript. If you look closely you can see that I am actually #1 academic student. I have a 3.97 GPA. I think this is the best I have ever performed academically. I was so happy! I got a nice gift certificate to a book store.
I think the toughest part was having to say goodbye to all my classmates. It hasn't quite sunk in yet that I won't be seeing their shining faces everyday. Rahab is my best friend here. It's a good thing that we will be working together in Mombasa in a few weeks.
The day was just wonderful. It was a celebration of us as conquerers of bible school. It was a send off for us to go into the world and preach the gospel to all nations. For me, the best part of the day was when a visitor from a top bible school in England awarded 3 of our boys a full scholarship to the school! These 3 boys are so thirsty to know God and I am so so excited for them. It's an opportunity of a lifetime. I don't think they ever thought that they would be able to leave Kenya let alone get a scholarship to further their studies outside the country. Tears welled up in my eyes seeing the joy and excitement on their faces. Pray that God would make a way for them to get there. Getting a visa to the UK is often difficult for Kenyan citizens but with God all things are possible.
This season has ended and another is about to begin. I am taking the next few weeks to do some travelling visiting various friends and ministries that I have been involved with in the past. At the end of the month I plan to be in Mombasa and start working full time with the staff there. I am looking forward to what God has in store for me there. My heart is just booming for the youth in this country. I am ready to show them the extravagant love of Christ!
