To: Parents, Families and Branch Presidents of Missionaries serving in the Kenya Nairobi Mission
As you may know, Kenya is preparing for a general presidential election on March 4, 2013. In order to ensure the safety of missionaries serving in Kenya, we have implemented an Emergency Action Plan which will begin on Friday, March 1.
Missionaries serving in areas that potentially may have political disturbances will be moving to safe areas. Those serving in Mombasa will transfer to Chyulu area for the election week and will be teaming up with missionaries serving there to continue missionary work. Missionaries serving in Kisumu/Busia, Naivasha and Nakuru will transport to Nairobi and stay with missionaries in safe flats on Friday or Saturday, March 1st and 2nd . Missionaries serving in outlying areas in Kitale and Eldoret will stay with other missionaries in town and close to each other beginning March 1 or 2. After arriving in their assigned areas, all missionaries will be staying inside for 4-6 days beginning Sunday after church or before if needed. Preparations have been made for extra food and water for each missionary. During these 4-6 days, we will all have the opportunity to study the gospel in depth.
