From Idaho to Nairobi: Faculty Workshop, August 2018

Fac workshopIt must be a new trimester, since today we attended the ANU Faculty Workshop. It was Amy’s first workshop as a member of the Department of Language and Literature.

To kick off the new term, Kathleen Hansen and Leola Bailey, veteran public school educators, came to Nairobi from Idaho (U.S.) to teach us. Among other things, we learned about Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching. It was both fun and informative as we broke into small groups and exchanged ideas and best practices for the classroom.

Besides food for the mind, we enjoyed food for the body, sharing warm tea and a delicious lunch together.

Prayer requests

On Monday, the new term begins. Pray for our students as they return to school following their August break. Ask God to give them safe travel and fresh minds for a new trimester of learning.

Pray that God will move in the hearts of everyone, that those who do not know Christ will make the decision to follow Him. Ask that those who already know Jesus will grow closer in their walk with the Lord.
