This page begins the first series, most of which were taken in Kenya, featuring the
first three of twenty-four images
along with accompanying descriptions; there is also an image from the Belgian Congo and
another from Uganda in the set. The series of images documenting the
Presbyterian work in Cameroon are represented by nine additional images.

Laura's own. Any text provided by the Archives is enclosed within brackets; the
image number begins each bracketed comment.
Opening the Christmas box
[I.6. The Christmas box was a package of necessities and small
luxuries sent to missionaries by their supporters in the United States. The woman second
from the left, standing right behind the post, is Collins.]
A wedding group
[I.22. It was not uncommon for missionaries to marry several Christian
couples at one time.]
Temporary chapel at Kinyona.
[I.8. Part of the permanent brick chapel which was built
a little later may possibly be the one shown in photo I.19.
The temporary chapel fell down soon after it was built, and because the mission had
no money for a replacement, the missionaries at Kinyona paid for the brick chapel
out of their own funds.]
