The month of February 2020 was a good month, a month like any other. Well, perhaps this is not entirely true as 2020 is a leap year, which made February longer by one day, a big deal for those born that day. But I digress. My name is Njoki, and I’m a Cooperator of the Work. This is the month I was introduced to Francy, a lovely young lady who is a 2nd year Law student at Strathmore University.
I vividly remember our first meeting as she is naturally friendly, bubbly and chatty. It was easy to strike up a conversation right away. She said she wanted to become a Catholic and hoped to be baptized as soon as possible. I found her enthusiasm very encouraging as she was eager to embark on the journey. I arranged to meet regularly with Francy to go through the Catechism of the Catholic Church’s section on the sacraments of Christian initiation
In the following month, March 2020, COVID-19 hit and we went into a lock-down. By this time I had only had two meetings with Francy. Due to the unpredictability of the situation we quickly adapted to the online learning as the rest of the world was doing and continued meeting weekly. Our preferred mode of meeting was via the zoom platform which worked quite well for us.
