Nzioka Is Top Student!
By Dawn Brown
I remember meeting Nzioka Musembi during our visit to one of the primary schools in Mbooni. I saw the scars on his face and could tell they ran under his school uniform too. A school administrator and a teacher had brought him to us and began speaking words I couldn’t understand. My mind wandered, trying to imagine what this child had experienced in his young life. I knew I could never even begin to understand.

That was the system I was using to keep track of the names and faces after we returned home. I knew from other short term mission trips, that memories fade, even when you think they won’t.
“Oh God,” I quickly and silently prayed, “May we do more good for this boy than harm.”
