My name is Loise Nduku Kitulu and have been serving as the STEM staff for the University of Eldoret, Mosoriot KMTC, Koitalel Samoei University College, Koshin TTI, Moiben TVC, Iten KMTC, and A.I.C Kapsowar MTC. However, I was mainly stationed at the University of Eldoret.
I am eternally grateful to God and FOCUS Kenya for the opportunity to do STEM. It has played a key role in grounding me firmly in my faith. I have become consistent in my bible reading, cultivated a reading culture, especially in Christian literature, and learned to share the Word of God with others. My passion for ministry to students has been spurred greatly and I hope to give more energy to it beyond this period.
STEM has taught me new skills and perfected those that I had. The highlight for me is learning to mobilize resources. I am better at communication and interpersonal skills as a result of the exposure to speaking engagements and training forums. As I did my prayer letters to my ministry partners, I improved my design skills. I have learned personal organization and management of my time using planners, to be a financial steward and a worker with integrity.
Several people made my STEM experience very memorable. First, my family was incredibly supportive from the day I expressed interest to join STEM. Second, the FOCUS staff team, especially the North Rift staff team, has been a family for me. Proverbs 27:5 says, better is an open rebuke than hidden love. These teammates have aided in my growth by always not hesitating to point out my weaknesses and helping me work on them. Third, my ministry partners, have shown me great love and I praise the Lord for them. I am grateful for the beautiful friendships we built with the students and associates.
As I approach my transition, I pray that God may grant me an opportunity to further my studies and reach more students.
