How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? (Romans 10:14)
Paul highlights three principles in sharing the Good News. Nobody can call on God if they do not have faith in Him. Hearing precedes faith and people can only hear if an opportunity is presented to them. Indeed, faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God.
Well, BSK enables people to hear the Word of God not only through print Bibles but also via audio Bibles in form of Talking Bibles, Torch Bibles, and Proclaimers. One of the ways we reach out to many people is finding peace ambassadors or key people who are intentional in causing a ripple effect in their circles of influence.
We recently partnered with one such person: Madam Dianah Kamande, the Founder and Director of the Come Together Widows and Orphans Organization (CTWOO). Through Dianah, we have reached out to faithful, available, and teachable leaders who have initiated listening groups in their churches and other institutions as well as giving a chance to individuals incapacitated to receive Talking Bibles in Murang’a, Kiambu, Kajiado, Machakos, and Nairobi counties.
Baraka Children Home in Kayole in Nairobi is one of the institutions which has embraced the Faith Comes By Hearing programme. This home of peace was founded by Ms. Margaret Kimani in 1990 and permanently hosts 300 children ranging from 1 to 29 years old. The multi-talented children are avid in holding Bible studies every week, and the Proclaimer proved to be a useful tool for discipleship among these jewels.
During the meeting, Dianah encouraged the children to be grounded in the word of God and they will never go wrong in life. She alluded to what Paul tells the church at Colossae,” Be rooted and built-in Christ.” Colossians 2:7. In agreement, Margaret told the children to maximize the resource of the audio Bible in enriching their Bible studies.
