"Filipo Ndjau mit Familie (Marangu)" ("Filipo Ndjau with family (Marangu)"). Ndjau, his wife and six children with a dog in front of the porch of a house built in European style thatched with plant fiber.; Cf. photo no. 969, album no. 3. -- Filipo Ndjau (or Ndschau/Ndzau/Njau) was born in Moshi approx. in 1890 as Kisari. After the death of his father, who had been a counselor to the Mangi Rindi, Ndjau was brought up by his mother and their kin from 1893. He attended the mission school in Moshi and helped to educate his fellow students as an assistant teacher as early as 1899. In spite of the Chistian education received by the missionaries, he decided to get circumcised in 1904 before his baptism in 1905. Ndjau worked for the missionaries Kurt Fickert, Johannes Schanz and Bruno Gutmann in Moshi, Marangu and Machame and accompanied the former one on his travels to Tanga and Mombasa. Ndjau's positions included ones such as "boy", cook, launderer and assistant teacher. In 1912, he joined the teachers' seminar in Marangu, where he was once again praised for his diligence both in intellectual and physical work. After the closure of the Marangu seminar in 1916, Ndjau worked as catechist in Moshi. He returned to the Marangu seminar on its re-opening in 1926 and served there as a teacher until 1954. The date of his death is unknown. -- Wilhelm Guth (1888-1980), from Zeiskam in the Rhineland Palatinate, studied commerce before joining the Leipzig Mission as a pastor. He served in Gonja (southern Pare) from 1913 to 1917 and from 1927 to 1938. He left a large number of photographs, mostly taken by himself but including some by members of his family or fellow missionaries.
