Over the years, Bible Society of Kenya has continued to fulfil its mandate of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through translating, producing, distributing and encouraging the use of Holy Scriptures. The Society fulfils this mandate by availing Bibles to all people both young and old because God’s word is useful to all.
On 9th March 2017, a team from BSK consisting of Mr. James Kathuraku, Bible Advocacy and Scripture Use Manager and Mr. Benson Mwangi, Programme Officer for Literacy and Children Outreach, visited three schools in Embu County; Kianjokoma, Nthingini and Gategi Primary Schools to share scriptures with children. Children from these schools are very needy and do not have Bibles.
BSK has distributed Bibles in marginalized areas and children homes in various Counties in the past to ensure children interact with God’s word as a tool to bring positive transformation and behaviour change in their lives.
The Head teacher of Gategi Primary School appreciated BSK for the donation saying that “we have never received such a precious gift since the school was started. These Bibles will help the students to perform better in CRE,” She said. The teachers also benefited from the Programme for Pastoral Instruction (PPI) materials which they said will help them to teach God’s word to different age groups in a structured manner.
The pupils’ governor of Kianjokoma Primary school Peter Njeru, a class five pupil appreciated BSK for giving them Bibles and promised that they will replicate by reading and applying it in their lives. Kudos to the team for a job well done!
