Please keep our Sister Bonita in prayer while she teaches computer skills classes in Kenya. For the next several weeks she will be living and working with sisters from a variety of religious orders and places around the Tumaini Center in Nairobi, Kenya. While this may not have been on Benedict's mind when he wrote chapter 50 of the Rule of Benedict: On Sisters Who Are Working Far Away from the Oratory or Are on a Journey, our sister is sharing the prayer and work with the student sisters of the program because she "shall perform the Work of God in the place where they are working, bending their knees in reverence before God" (RB 50: 2).
In the past, Sister Bonita shared her computer skills through AIM (The Alliance for International Monasticism) during college breaks at Mount Marty. She enjoyed working with the Benedictine Sisters of Our Lady Help of Christians in Tanzania in encouraging their computer literacy.
This summer she is teaching in Nairobi, Kenya with the ASEC (African Sisters Education Collaborative). You can follow her summer as teacher and learner as she blogs about her experiences.
