BIBLES FOR LICONI CHURCH

Likoni Good News Church of Africa (GNCA) is situated in the centre of an Islamic slum in Liconi, Mombasa, Kenya.
The Liconi 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.
The GODFEST FOUNDATION has been able to donate sufficient money to the Liconi Church to enable them to purchase NIV/English Bibles for all the adults,
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 dreamed 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."
