    Enjoyed listening to this interview by Dr. Nisly. I have never been to Daystar but when I as a Junior at Messiah (1980-81), Dr. Talitwala was the President of Daystar and he was visiting Messiah and Dr. D. Ray Hostetter, President of Messiah at that time, asked me to host Dr. Talitwala at lunch during his visit to Messiah. During the summer of 1981, the first two students from Daystar arrived at Messiah and I agreed to have Tyndale Zoe room with me that summer. I was good friends with Tyndale and the other Daystar students, Margaret Ekwan. Both Tyndale and Margaret followed me to Shippensburg University where I was enrolled in the MPA program. Tyndale also joined the MPA program and we shared an apartment in Shippensburg. Margaret attended the Mt. Rock BIC church with me. After my graduation from Shippensburg, D. Ray spoke to me about possible service at Daystar. The interview brought back these memories associated with Daystar University!

    Interesting anecdotes Prof. Widmer. Your research into Kenyan history is a boon to a younger generation Kenyan like myself. Thank you for the great insights into tumultuous times in Kenya’s history and for the great hope that you still have for Kenya’s people and Daystar University.

    God Bless you and your family
