Large group of Africans sitting, behind them, standing under a tent: four Africans dressed in white, Missionary Zeeb, and Sister Bachmann sitting with a baby on her arms.

During that time they stayed in Isoko (1908-1910), Rutenganio (1910), Mwaja (1910-1912) and Rungwe (1912-1916). For the following three years they were British prisoners of war. After they were released, they became missionaries of the Berlin Mission. -- Wilhelm Friedrich Zeeb (1866-1933) was a missionary of the Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine in Nyasa, East Africa, from 1898-1911.
