Chapter Summary

The majority of the Pare members had survived and remained steadfast, and even at Lake Victoria vestiges of the church's short presence could still be found. Karentze Olsen started a dispensary in 1930, and Anni Ludwig as well as Ada Robson are remembered to have continued this work in the following years. Yet plans to open an Adventist dispensary at Mamba in the 1930s never materialized. The 1940s and 1950s were also the years when the Ukara, Kweru, Kome and Wiru islands near Majita were reached. Thus emerged the Seventh-day Adventist Church as a well-established religious group around Majita Mission in the 1950s that would transform into a full- edged folk church in the 1960s and 1970s. An important aspect of the ultimate Adventist establishment at Masoko was that from the beginning an important local person was involved in the process: Tito William Mwakibinga.
