Dexter resident Christopher R. McKinney was scheduled to depart for Kenya this month on a Peace Corps mission, but that mission has been postponed.

His mother, Joanne McKinney, Dexter, said the Peace Corps has postponed new volunteer assignments to Kenya, but, she said, her son will go there anyway, as he has accepted a one-year internship with Burn Manufacturing, a company that manufactures clean-burning cook stoves in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. He will leave for Kenya around Dec. 1.

“He’s disappointed about the Peace Corps assignment, but happy that he will still be able to put his skills to good use in Kenya, after all,” Mrs. McKinney wrote in an email to the Times.
