For the sixth time Bible Society of Kenya (BSK), held a successful Bible Eagles Club Fun Day, a programme for children and youth aimed at engaging them with Scripture in a fun environment, develop life skills and instill a desire for transformation through God’s word on August 17th 2018 at Moi Nyeri Primary School.
Over 400 children attended the event and took part in various fun filled activities including bouncing castles, singing, dancing, face painting and memory verse recitals tailored to engage them with Scripture. Over 10 Churches participated in the event from various denominations.
I am so happy to receive a Bible today from Bible Society of Kenya. This will help me to learn much about the Word of God and also in learning Christian religious education. Next year I will bring my friends so that they too may participate in memory verse recitals and receive Bible gifts.” Jeremy Ndungu, Full Gospel Church.
This programme is aimed at instilling good morals and positive behaviour change among children. The purpose of this event is to sensitize young leaders of tomorrow 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.”
BSK also endeavours to see young people grow in a godly manner hence it avails Scripture to them in simplified language and format so that they may read, understand and apply in their day to day situations.
Other upcoming events will be held in Bungoma in October 2018, Machakos and Nairobi in November 2018. Last year similar successful events were held in five Counties with more than 3,000 children in attendance. These forums are held annually and are open to children and young adults from 3-18 years to enjoy fun activities and fellowship as they engage with Scripture.
The mission of Bible Society of Kenya is to make available the Holy Scriptures in affordable and innovative formats for holistic transformation of people’s lives through translation, production, distribution and Bible advocacy.
