Phinias Nyambita - Called to Serve in the Kenya Nairobi Mission

Phinias Nyambita, leaves for his home in Mwanza to spend a few weeks with his family before he leaves for Nairobi to begin his mission among the "Kenya Nairobi Warriors". We first came to know and love Phinias when he attended our conducting and keyboarding classes in Mbezi Beach while he was in boarding school in Dar and living with President Kachuchuru's family.  He is a bright and articulate young man with a firm testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He shares his testimony as he lives it by being humble, kind, dependable, hardworking and serving others. He is also a very good athlete and serves as Branch Clerk, President of his Institute Class, and YSA rep. Phinias will be an exceptional missionary! Good bye, for now, our African son.

Joseph Baraka Okanda - Best Ever Swahili Teacher and New PEF Law Student

We are saying goodbye to our dear friend, Okanda, as he leaves for Law School...his dream that has become a reality with the help of a PEF loan. With hard work and diligence he was accepted into a very competitive program at the University of Dodoma which is about 300 miles west of Dar. Okanda has been the Swahili tutor for all of us Dar Zone missionaries since we arrived. He has served faithfully for several years as the Chang'ombe Branch Elder's Quorum President and has completed and excelled in the conducting and keyboard courses we taught. He is an exceptional young man and he will be missed by many, especially us! Onward and upward Okanda!!
