As readers of this blog may know, we have several international students from East Africa, and particularly from Kenya, studying here at VTS. I have several of them in my own classes---these students have a much greater appreciation for the Hebrew Scriptures than many (not all!) US seminarians. This request for continued prayers just in from our Dean of Community Life:
As you may know, the current government in Kenya has given “the shoot to kill” order if demonstrators gather. As a result demonstrators as well as innocent bystanders have been shot, beaten and killed. The unrest persists and often explodes into violence in a very short span of time. Please continue to pray for the people of Kenya and especially for Mary Tororeiy, Daniel Mwiti Munene and Peter Kanyi who all have loved ones in Kenya.
