I have been here now eleven times, and, though trite, it feels like home in many ways. Familiarity is seeping in. I now know when I am near the right block in downtown Nairobi for the KeMU Hub or know when I'm on the shortcut to the Methodist Guest House in Lavington area.
Focus is sharpening: Scholarships, particularly for theological students who come from the poorest of the poor generally and funding for a new classroom building (in Kenyanese, "Tuition Block." The main campus us bursting at the seams. Lecturers have offices smaller than closets. Classes have trouble finding space to meet. The library is bursting its seams and needs to reclaim the parts of the building used as classrooms. When I walk through the Library I seen no empty seats at tables nor empty study carrels.
