March 7, 2013

Dear Parents and Families of missionaries serving in the Kenya Nairobi Mission:
It is Thursday 07 March in Kenya and we are currently awaiting the final results of the election. All missionaries have moved safely from hotspots to safe areas and flats; food and water storage is in place and all missionaries serving in Kenya are staying in their flats.
Most communities have been calm around the country. Although there has been some chaos and violence in remote areas, all the missionaries are safe.
We will send another e-mail when the missionaries have returned to their areas of service. The Lord has answered our prayers as we have followed his admonition “...if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.” D&C 38:30.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
President and Sister Broadbent

To:  Parents, Families, Branch, Stake and Mission Presidents of Missionaries serving in the Kenya Nairobi Mission:
We are grateful and happy to share with you that the Kenya presidential election was peaceful.  There were very few disturbances throughout the country.  All missionaries were safe throughout the week and spent the time studying, building relationships with each other and preparing for the time when they would again be able to resume missionary work. 
Missionaries are returning to their areas this week.  Transportation is now available; the roads are safe and traffic is moving well.  All areas where they serve have been declared safe.  We will continue to monitor all areas.   Food and water storage will continue to be readily available and missionaries know what to do if there is a need to ‘stay in the flats’ once again.
Thank you for your support, your faith and your prayers.  We have received a great blessing of peace and safety.  The Lord’s work continues to go forward with greater zeal and purpose.
Best regards,
President Steven H. Broadbent
Kenya Nairobi Mission
