My name is Janet Nyokabi Ndung’u the STEM staff serving with Kitui CUs.
Like any other journey, STEM started with some expectations. I expected a journey of serving students and sharing my life with them through guidance and counselling, discipleship, advisory roles, and any other as God would guide me. I also expected challenges since I knew any journey must have its ups and downs. At a personal level, I expected to grow more in the knowledge of God, to gain and improve some skills. I can testify that most of them have been met. The most fulfilling moments were when I would talk to students one-on-one or in groups and they would take up the advice and their lives changing for the better.
I thank God for STEM because the convictions and values I have developed would not be gotten anywhere else. I am convinced that the Lord had given me that one year for a specific purpose. My decision-making skills have been sharpened and I grew more assertive with the many instances I was required to make sober decisions. I have also developed a reading culture that has made the journey interesting. I have been able to read at least 10 books for the last 12 months. I am a better public speaker because of the platforms I got and a better listener as well.
STEM has been a great part of my life and I will ever be grateful. To all Kitui CUs students and associates, my team leader, all my prayer and financial partners, FOCUS Kenya in general, may God who sees in secret bless you openly and abundantly. Shalom
