After spending a week in prayer over the issue, I have decided to look into buying bibles for the work camps in the Nandi hills, and if possible, providing each house with a copy of God’s Word. After that, if the women there want to start a biblical foundation class, I want to teach them.
It is a very long drive there and back, the bibles cost a lot of money, and there will be a language barrier, so doing this will get complicated. However, if it is in God’s will it will happen. But if now is not the right timing, or if God has other plans, I understand.
In the mean time, there is no harm in assessing possibilities! Which leads me to Imani radio ministries in Kitale. Imani radio is a Kenyan gospel station based out of my region. One of my Kenyan friends just happens to know the man who runs the place, and he happens to have a cargo container arriving in Mombosa this weekend with over 6,000 bibles in it. I was very excited at first, but then I learned that all these Bibles are in English. Unfortunately I need Swahili ones. All I can say is good thing I was praying about the issue because I almost placed an order without thinking about language! Oh, that would have been a bad, bad mistake.
This man was very kind however, and he gave me ideas of different publishers I could contact–like Biblica. I guess that is the next step.
