She also did some graduate work at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, and earned an academic minor degree in library science. Before heading to the mission field, she taught kindergarten- through high school-aged students in Illinois and Texas. She also worked as the district librarian for Orange Grove Independent School District in Texas. In addition, Georgia served as an international teacher in Bogota, Colombia, and as a missionary teacher in Cameroon, Africa, prior to her serving in Kenya.

 

Prayers

Please pray for Georgia as she serves in Kenya. Pray that God gives her strength and peace as she continues to settle into living and serving in Kenya. Ask God to sustain her as she is away from family and friends in the United States and is lonely and missing them. Pray for her ease in learning the college’s library system. Ask God to bless Georgia with good health and abundant stamina so she is able to serve the seminarians in their learning and research. Let us give thanks to God for Georgia serving His children in this part of the world.
