Kenya Used Bible Drive Continues on…

| August 22, 2014

Bably -26 Nicodemus KenyaPraise God! The Kenya Used Bible Project has filled the first shipment.

We are so pleased and pleasantly surprised at how many responses we received from everyone. Thank you to everyone who has participated. You have helped to make this a huge success!

What happens now? 

This shipment will leave Baltimore on September 11th. Once in Mombasa, Kenya, it will become part of the inventory for the new Bible Store. Then the hard work begins… those on the other side of the Ocean, will be tasked to set up, open and operate a new retail store and begin selling all of these incredible Christian Bible materials. Surely they will need our prayers.

Garrett is encouraging us to continue and we are honored to do so. MBS will continue to accept whatever Bibles, Biblical materials, Christian literature and children’s resources you have.

If all goes well in Mombasa, we expect to have another shipment ready to send over in early 2015.

For those of you who have contacted us and are in process of collecting used Bible and related materials, we will be accepting them. If you have not previously contacted us, but are still interested in giving, please email Cathy Johnson at or call her at 410-685-4040.

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.
