Bible Society of Kenya held a successful Bible Eagles Club Fun Day, a programme for children and youth aged 3yrs-18year aimed at engaging them with Scripture in a fun environment, develop life skills and instill a desire for transformation through God’s word on November 24th 2017 at Madaraka Primary School.

Over 500 children from different schools, churches and children’s homes attended the event and took part in various fun filled activities including; bouncing castles, singing, dancing, face painting tailored to instill values and have them engaged with scripture. BSK engages with her associate members through this event as a way of encouraging knowledge and use of Scripture from a young age.

Time to read the bible

 This is part of Bible Society of Kenya’s children’s programmes aimed at inculcating good morals and positive behavior change among young people. The purpose of this event is to sensitize young leaders from different backgrounds to appreciate the importance of the Bible in their lives and for the future.

The theme of this event is drawn from the book of Isaiah 40:31 which states that “they will rise on wings like eagles.”

The BSK General Secretary Mrs. Elizabeth Muriuki noted that BSK endeavors to train young children in the knowledge of God’s word as this will guide them in the future. She adds that when young ones are trained in the word of God at a young age they will not depart from it.

Another successful event was held in Machakos on November 23rd 2017. This event brought together over 450 children from different church denominations and schools. These forums are held annually in different counties and are open to youth from 3-18 years to enjoy fun activities and fellowship as they engage with Scripture.

The winners from various activities were appreciated with gifts.

Positive feedback has been received in the areas where these events have been held. Below are some testimonies from the children;

It is my first time to attend this event and I have really enjoyed it. I have learnt that I should avoid bad company and choose friends wisely. I have also learnt that I should obey my parents as God commands me to do so. Next year I will bring my friends so that they too can learn and have fun. Elizabeth Mutindi, Heritage Children’s Home, Nairobi

 I am attending this event for the fourth time. I have learnt how to read the Bible and pray every day. I have enjoyed the singing and dancing sessions. I have also learnt how to live responsibly and become a leader. I thank Bible Society of Kenya for holding this event and giving us good t-shirts. I will encourage my friends to join bible eagles club so that they too may learn God’s Word. Latifa Njeri, Machakos

 This is the third time I am attending this event. I have learnt that I should love everyone around me so that we all may live peacefully. I have also learnt how to manage peer pressure and to be a good steward of my body because it is the Lords temple. Next year I will bring my friends so that they too will read the Bible and have fun. Boniface Wambua, AIC Manza Project, Machakos
