Rosie at Trinity School for Ministry

I write this sitting on my porch of my new home, in a small town about 30 minutes from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I’m here to study at Trinity School for Ministry, an evangelical Anglican seminary which aims to form Christian leaders for mission.

Before arriving here, I was wonderfully blessed to spend time with a dear friend, Jubilee, whom I shared a home with in Cairo. Our time together helped me transition as she patiently fielded questions on life in the USA. She even interpreted for her family when they understood me saying that the most frightening thing about North America is the ‘beer’ (I meant to talk about the large growly animals!).

I’m starting to feel settled and I’m excited about studying here. This semester I’m studying courses on ‘Evangelism and Church Planting,’ ‘Old Testament Introduction,’ ‘Biblical Interpretation,’ and ‘Systematic Theology.’ Today I read that “one of the privileges of coming away to seminary is the opportunity to drink from the well of a deep and sustaining tradition so that we in turn might pass it on to others.” This is my hope as I'm studying here.

Rosie has been a Mission Partner in Egypt. She is currently upskilling by studying at Trinity School of Ministry.
