We welcomed our first guests in 1965 after Eastern Mennonite Missions purchased the property from King’s African Rifles. Formerly called the St. Mawe’s Hotel, our original buildings housed members of the British colonial army. The grounds even included an underground passageway to a fortified bunker.
Today, most of our guests are service workers and their families from around the world. Three generations of missionary children have climbed the trees and played on the swing in our back yard.
The Guest House is also the heart beat of Mennonite activities in East Africa. Our library reflects this, as we have a number of African, Mennonite and peace-related publications available to borrow.
Aram and Debbi DiGennaro moved from the United States in March 2008 to manage the Guest House. They also direct the work of Eastern Mennonite Missions in East Africa.
On the first Sunday of every month, we welcome anyone to join us in a traditional one-hour hymn sing. The service is held in our dining room with tea and coffee served afterwards.
