My name is David Tolo from Kenya. I'm trying to trace my roots through the activities of my paternal grandpa, The late Johanna Tolo who was a pioneer SDA missionary and evangelist in Kenya. He died in 1939.
I am particularly looking for information from the SDA missionaries who worked with my grandfather at the time.
Historical documents i have come across and the stories i have heard from family and friends reveal that my grandfather worked with SDA missionaries like Arthur Carscallen who was sent to Kenya in 1906 to set up the SDA church.Johanna Tolo was one of the Seven African leaders chosen to be in Charge of seven districts. My grandfather was in charge of Wire Hill(One of the 7 Districts)
I strongly believe the descendants of the early missionaries who worked in Kenya or SDA archives hold vital information and could reveal more about my grandfather whom i know very little about.
Anyone with information about my grandfather Johanna Tolo, please kindly help out. This information will be very useful in answering some very vital questions about my grandfather i wish to know.
We don't forget about our history.We carry it into the future.
I believe the world wide web is a very powerful tool in this adventure and that's why i ask you to embark with me on this long and exciting journey.
