Solomon & Mable Charwi
In Kehancha, Kenya Since 1994
Pastor Solomon Rioba Charwi established the church he pastors in Kehancha, Kenya, East Africa in 1994. We met Pastor Solomon in 1998 during his first visit to the United States. He requested that a visit be made to Kenya for the purpose of instructing pastors in the teaching of the Bible; that was the beginning of Calvary Petaluma missions. Pastor Solomon oversees the Pastor’s Library, stocked with commentaries and Pastor Chuck Smith’s Bible study tapes, which was built in 1999 as an extension of our ministry to pastors. The use of the library is free to any pastor who wishes to borrow Bible commentaries or Bible study tapes, and can also accommodate a pastor who wants to come and spend a couple of days just studying. Pastor Solomon has also undertaken a project translating Pastor Chuck Smith’s “Through the Bible” studies into Swahili, the national language of Kenya. He has done it in such a way that you hear both English and Swahili on the tapes.
