During famine in the south coast food was a luxury

The mission to South Coast was very challenging indeed, a team of six missioners left Nairobi by bus fully loaded with a film projector, a 2.5kw generator ,pas ,bedings and personal
effects to last 10 days.On arrival ten pastors of various denominational churches led by pastor Stephen Chengo met the group at Mwanguda Baptist Church an agreed venue for the mission.It was already one oclock on the next day having travelled over 600km in the night the team began with a crusade at three oclock that ended at six .At 7.30 pm they showed Jesus film to about 300 people which included some muslims ,120 gave their lives to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour .The following days that followed were dogged with many problems, the generator got spoilt and another one was hired ,however that one also quit after the night film show forcing the team to rent another generator that managed to complete the miission.Accommodation was on adirt floor of the church with air camp matresses the team hah carried it was a window and door less structure in average temp of 30c.fOOD Was available only once a day with acomplimentary cup of tea any time of the day when water was available The lone meal was at midnight. The team was in an area hit by famine and drought thefood was by world food pgm, the nearest water point was 20km. After ten days the team narrowly escaped death along Mombasa-Nairobi Highway at night when the lights of the bus went off suddenly at high speed at a corner. The calling upon the name of Jesus is what saved the situation by the mission team The driver used moonlihght to stop the bus.All this happened from 29/3/09 to9/4/09. 674 persons gave their lives to Jesus as Lord and Saviour. The next mission will be next year in Sept.
