The Bible Society of Kenya had the privilege to host the .Bible workshop in Kenya for three days June 28th to 30th July 2017. This forum brought together participants from 14 African countries who gathered together at Pride Inn Hotel to learn about how to use the .Bible domain to avail information on the various Bibles available in the different Bible Societies.
The participants were trained on how to avail information on their Bibles to their audiences on the .Bible platform so that the readers may have a better understanding of their specific Bibles, the translation process, verse quotations in their local language and where to get the Bibles.
Mr. Thomas Tharao the Head of Operations at the Bible Society of Kenya officially opened the meeting by welcoming participants to Kenya and shared the word of God. He noted that when Jesus Christ was on earth He foresaw a future where the gospel will be spread to the whole world through his disciples. We are privileged to live in the era where digital communications enables swift transmission of information. We therefore need to utilize this to spread the word of God to all the corners of the world as that is our mandate as Christians.
Mr. Tharao noted that for Bible work in Africa to progress, it would need workers who were willing to do things differently; workers who would make Jesus the centre of Bible work. He therefore encouraged the participants to give their best in their respective areas of service.
Mr. Hamish Bruce and Andrea Rhodes from the United Bible Societies trained the participants for the three days. The participants were from Ghana, Togo, Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Liberia, Tanzania, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Botswana, Nigeria, Burundi, Malawi, Zambia and Kenya. It was indeed a great time of learning and fellowship.
