Just study the reviews on the Internet to make sure that this drug is highly effective in the process of getting rid of bad skin conditions. On the other hand, the feedback often includes complains of noticeable side effects.

Missionaries Garrett Wong, Luis Contreras and Bably Ateke answered ‘yes’ to God’s calling to start a ministry and open a Bible Store in Mombasa, Kenya. They approached Maryland Bible Society for advice and direction.

Their mission is a perfect partnership for us; we decided to join their cause and hope you will do the same. Currently in Kenya, the very few Christian stores in existence are expensive.

Since 18% of Kenyan citizens speak English – and many Americans have more used Bibles than they need – a rare opportunity has been created. By collecting donated used Bibles, biblical studies, commentaries, concordances and Christian literature, we are able to supply the needed inventory.

Additionally container ships leave the port of Baltimore periodically and travel directly to Mombasa. A fully loaded container will cost $4,000. The Chinese Community Church in Washington, D.C. and mission churches in Kenya are funding the shipping costs.

The irony here cannot be missed. The Maryland Bible Society was founded to distribute new bibles. We are now a linchpin in the redistribution of used bibles to new Christians in Mombasa, Kenya. We are excited about this opportunity. Join us!

The Maryland Bible Society is accepting your used Bibles, bible related study materials, and biblical literature on special dedicated days at the MBS offices housed at Divinity Lutheran Church, 1220 Providence Rd, Towson, MD 21286. Come to the side door.

Please consider bringing your donations to our office during the week of August 11th to the 15th between 9 AM to 4 PM or on Saturday the 16th from 8 AM to Noon.

Questions? Email or call 410-685-4040.

Please help us redistribute Bibles to our brothers and sisters in Mombasa, Kenya!

About the Author ()

For over 200 years, the mission of the Maryland Bible Society (MBS) has been to see that every individual has an opportunity to own a Bible regardless of their native language or financial situation. Here in Maryland this mission has been mostly fulfilled. We now are turning our emphasis to encouraging and helping people read, understand and live out the truths and principles God has given us through His Holy Scriptures. As a non-denominational ministry, MBS is uniquely positioned to offer God’s Word without note or comment to Christians from all denominational backgrounds. This position allows us to work with all local Christian churches, serving and assisting them as they follow God’s lead. MBS has and will continue to establish and build partnerships that promote the distribution of the Bible, supply related sources and provide educational opportunities. Our vision is to ignite fresh passion for God’s Word to be lived out in the daily lives of people in Maryland and the world beyond. God’s Word contains truths that speak to all of the important areas of our lives: family, marriage, work, friendships, finances and parenting. It serves as the ‘road map’ for the often-overwhelming experience of life. It is a comfort, an encouragement, a teacher. It is convicting, edifying and inspiring. The Bible reveals our purpose in life. The Creator of the Universe has given us His Word to guide and direct us as we serve Him and live in the world.

As we embark on this renewed vision, our desire is to impact lives. As God leads us on this great adventure, we invite you to partner with us. Lives will be transformed as the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, resources and opportunities provided by MBS. Join us as we ignite fresh passion for God’s Word among individuals, ministries, local Churches, and businesses.
