The Bible Society of Kenya continues to reach the grassroots through its branches which are located in different Counties around Kenya.
As a way of appreciating members, BSK held a members engagement forum that brought together
members from Nairobi and its environs. This event also brought together potential members who were encouraged to join BSK and be part of the noble work of availing Scriptures to all in languages they understand best.
Currently, BSK has nine branches including Machakos, Nyeri, Meru, Vihiga, Bungoma, Kericho, Kakamega, Kisumu and Nairobi. Over the years these branches have been involved in planning for successful events including Bible Eagles Club Fun Days, Good Samaritan workshops, Trauma healing programme, prayer breakfasts for leaders and the business community, Bible launches and membership recruitments.
The General Secretary Mrs. Elizabeth Muriuki appreciated all the guests for attending the forum noting that the Society is continuing to grow to greater heights because of the prayers, support and participation of the members. She noted that BSK is very intentional about placing a Bible in every hand, thus has introduced a USSD platform *288# that enables people to buy Bibles in installments then the Bible will be delivered to the person. She added that the platform allows one to register for membership, donation towards Bible Work and pay membership subscription. The potential members were encouraged to register for the service and begin the process of becoming members of BSK.
In the meeting, testimonies were shared from two former Board members and members of Nairobi branch Mr. Isaac Litali and Ms. Njeri Kangethe. These members shared their fond experiences having been BSK members for a long time. They encouraged the potential members and their family members so that they can appreciate the noble work Bible Society of Kenya is doing to transform people’s lives through Bible translation and other bible advocacy projects.
Members were also encouraged to continue recruiting more members so as to ensure vibrancy in the branches as well as increase involvement in BSK activities.
Another successful event was held in Kisumu with 130 members in attendance from Western and Nyanza regions. We thank God for the successful engagement forums which also created networking opportunities for members.
