Georgette Short

“I have had some demanding moments over the last few months. The most serious was the terrorist attack at Garissa, which is quite some distance from here but because it involved Christian brothers and sisters it impacted us greatly. It also made us realise how vulnerable we are in many ways and yet how fortunate to live in a peaceful place like Machakos. It was particularly poignant because it happened during Easter Week and we have been much in prayer for the people involved. But I have also had ‘Easter Day’ moments, mostly because of the wonderful, amazing students whom I have the privilege to teach… These students are why I continue to serve at Scott. Please pray for them and for the university as we move towards the end of the semester, final exams and graduation.”
