The Mombasa GNCA was founded in 2005 and, by 2008, had a congregation of 112 adults and 67 children and is continuing to grow, but they had no Bibles.
Godfest has been able to donate sufficient money to the
and NIV/Swalhili Bibles for all of the children, with a little more for future growth.
One member of the congregation, a lady by the name of Peres, who attends the weekly Widows' Bible classes, said this:
“I had never dreamt of having a Bible – Seven years ago I seriously needed one but after they became expensive, I gave up.
Now thank God for this Church and those who donated. God bless all. I now have a Bible."

A long time financial supporter of Godfest has
been the local Rhema FM. It was a great pleasure for Godfest to be in a
financial position to return the favour, and to support the Christian music
events organised by Rhema.
Godfest and Rhema FM in the Manning continue in close partnership in seeking to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in the local region and beyond.
Rick, who has had years of children's ministry experience
throughout Australasia, was a great success with the kids.
