Mormon Helping Hands - Dar es Salaam - August 15, 2015

 The Dar es Salaam District Missionaries.  Fun and hard-working.  So willing to do anything that is needed.

         WE SO ENJOY BEING                        WITH THE                            MISSIONARIES!!!!
 From left to right:  Elders Lopeyok and Arudo, Elder and Sister Wilson, Elder and Sister Smith, Sister Mayoli and Alinyo, and Elders Harvey and Nkhoma.  They have so much fun but when they do training at District Development Meeting, they rise to the occasion.  At the end of a meeting you feel a need to go home and study some more, work harder, love more and serve better.

Every year the Dar es Salaam District finds a large project to do with Mormon Helping Hands.  This year they chose a hospital.  There is a very large Government owned hospital that required a great deal of cleaning around the hospital grounds.  Members brought their own tools, shovels, rakes, brooms, pitchforks, and of course pass along cards.  We have been told there were about 120 volunteers.  They worked the whole morning and got a great deal accomplished.  Many hands make light work.

What a joy it is to be able to serve side by side with the members of this district.  I saw several people stop to read the sign that was placed in the center park area of the hospital grounds.  It is a quiet place where visitors and family members can go for quiet reflection.


  1. Do you happen to have the email for the current mission president? I'm trying to get it for a non-member friend going there who would like a contact who knows the area. Thanks!

  2. The Mission President has changed and the Mission Home has moved away from downtown Nairobi. But the church offices are still there. They are just by the Citi Group Bank. That is probably listed on the church website and you may also find the Mission information there. sorry we do not have the e-mail addresses any more. But there might be an email address on the Church website. Hope that is helpful. Sorry I didn't have more info.
