Hi! My name is Rosie Perkins and I am from Prescott Presbyterian Church. I live in the deserts of Arizona with my parents & sister & two brothers, as well as three dogs, a cat and a goldfish. My dad has been the pastor of our little church for the last 16 years and –small world– Beth Bogue’s father often preaches for our congregation when my dad is out of town. I am a Biblical Studies major entering my final year at Geneva. I had the pleasure of meeting Pastor Quigley when he visited campus last Fall and spoke at a Bible study about the reality of Hell. My friends who have done the Semester in Scotland program speak well of you all, and my friend Matthew Sexton also has high praise for you. I am looking forward to meeting you, learning from you, and serving in your church! We SO appreciate your prayers for us. 🙂 Please let us know how we can be praying for you as well!
I’m Jennie Smith. I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and have lived half of my life on the North Side of the city. When I was entering middle school I moved 30 minutes north to the suburb, Cranberry Township and that’s where I live today. I am involved in my community and work for Cranberry Township’s Parks and Recreation Summer camp as a coordinator for the counselor in training program. I also work part-time as a habilitation aide to a family with a child with special needs. For the past two years I have worked as a BIble Teaching Assistant for the BIble Department at Geneva. I attend Dutilh United Methodist Church in Cranberry Township and am active in my church. I have taught Sunday School for years, worked in the nursery, helped with Vacation Bible School, ran a disability ministry training, gone on mission trips and sang in the choir. At Geneva I have a dual major in Missions and Human Services with a minor in Psychology. This coming year I will be a senior. Upon graduation, my plan is to attend graduate school and study Clinical Counseling with a concentration in behavior analysis. I eventually will work in diagnosing and creating treatment plans for individuals with autism and behavioral disorders. God has called me to work with individuals in the disability community and currently this is the path He has me going down. I cannot wait to come to Scotland and join your community there! Until then, God bless!
