The Bibles project was initiated by the Kenya Eastern District superintendent who has a burden to reach the un-reached. He donated 10 Bibles in the local language to a non-Christian community in the district, which have contributed to the spiritual growth of Christians who meet in secret.
These Bibles have led to more evangelism and discipleship opportunities in difficult-to-reach areas.
The project was expanded in 2021 to purchase more Bibles and develop trained evangelism teams with the goals of:
1. Transformation – in individuals’ lives through the power of the gospel.
2. Growth – for new converts and more mature believers.
3. Maturity – by developing believers into the character of Christ, in order to reflect Christ.
4. Equipped believers –able to stand for their faith and help other to come to Christ.
5. Discipleship - through reading and sharing the word of God.
Gifts between July 2021 and July 2022 supported the district leaders' goal to purchase Bibles and distribute them to those who would not otherwise have access to the life-changing Word of God. It also supported enhanced training for people with a burden for reaching the un-reached.
In the course of this project, they found others who would like to have a Bible of their own, or whose Bibles were too worn to continue using. This included some young people who preferred to have a physical copy to the digital versions that they were using. This project has proven to be an effective way to reach neighbors for Christ and has been extended through 2023.
One of their goals is to develop evangelism teams who are prepared and empowered to reach people who do not know Jesus in communities that are largely non-Christian.
