KENYA BULLETIN BOARD

WE HAVE BEEN GIVING FREE BIBLES SINCE 2013.  IN THE SPIRIT OF TRANSPARENCY, HERE ARE SOME OF OUR THOUGHTS.

WHO ARE WE?
            We are a very small group.  We have families whom we are responsible for and we are concerned about our children and grandchildren.  We have to earn a living to support our families by feeding, clothing and praying for them that they grow up serving our great God. 
           We also have limited time and funds and must spread them over all our other responsibilities. 
            We view this ministry as helping our neighbor with their problems.  As you know, helping your neighbor with their burdens takes a love that only God can provide along with a committed effort.   We are sure that those of you that love and help your neighbor understand what we are trying to do for you.

HERE IS HOW OUR PROGRAM WORKS IN KENYA
1.              Our primary Bible is the Swahili Bible [we buy in bulk and have our logo on the cover].  We inventory them at the Biblica store in Nairobi.  Biblica also publishes Bibles for us and others.  They give us their predictions as to when they will have our Bibles, that we are having them publish, in inventory in Nairobi.  They do not know all the problems they will face in publishing these Bibles so the prediction times can change.  We are all frustrated with delays, but they are a fact-of-life.  We will tell you the time that they predict we will have Bibles, but we take no responsibility for their predictions.
          If in your area you do not speak or understand Swahili, and if we can get the Bibles from Biblica in your language, we will offer to send you 20 or so Bibles one time and then remove your name from the list of ministries to receive Bibles. We hope this one-time shipment will help strengthen your congregation.

 2.              Everyone who gets Bibles from us must fill in the “New Ministry Sign-up Sheet” and provide us with a picture of their congregation as defined in the Sign-up Sheet.  Some of the ministries in the past have not filled in these Sign-up Sheets because we didn’t have them available but now, we will request these ministries to give us the information we need.  We know this may be an inconvenience, but we need the information in our files to serve you better. When these older ministries send us their Sign-up Sheets, they will retain their place in line to receive Bibles.
    When we receive the Sign-up Sheet from the new ministries, we will put them at the bottom of the list for new ministries receiving Bibles and as time goes on, they will appear at the top of the list and receive Bibles.  Once your quota is filled [the number of Bibles you have requested], we will remove your name from the list to receive Bibles and keep your name in our files.

 3.              We send 20 Bibles at the end of the month to 4 to 6 ministries at the top of the list.  New ministries have priority but both lists will receive some Bibles monthly [if we have the Bibles]. Assuming that you reply to us that you have received the Bibles in good condition and you have not received the number of Bibles you have requested on the Sign-up Sheet  [usually 20 to 60 Bibles unless you have a very large congregation - the limit is 100 Bibles and this could change at any time] we will add your name again at the bottom of the list.
Our goal is not that we give you all the Bibles you need but that your congregation will get enough Bibles to make a difference.
—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————- WE ARE OUT OF BIBLES AS OF 01/01/19!
UPDATE: WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE PUBLISHER THAT THEY HAVE CHANGED THE DATE WE WILL RECEIVE BIBLES TO MAY OR JUNE. THEY SAY THEY NEED TO UPDATE THE MAPS. OF COURSE, THIS IS FRUSTRATING FOR ALL OF US. WE HAVE VERY LITTLE OR NO CONTROL OVER THE PUBLISHER.

We have been asked recently to include NIV Bibles in our program.  Unfortunately, this would require more funds and more time [this would add a new dimension of complexity to our program], and we do not have enough of either funds or time.  We have put together a program [with Swahili Bibles] that may not provide all the Bibles a ministry would desire or in the time that they would desire, but at this time, it has been successful and therefore we will use this program [see the above guidelines].
If your ministry does not fit well into the above program we kindly encourage you to search for another Bible Ministry that shares your objectives.

100 OR MORE BIBLE MINISTRIES
Dear ministries which have received over 100 Bibles,
         We appreciate all of you who have given Bibles to “those who seek God’s Kingdom”.  Our records show that you have received 100 or more Bibles.  We have numerous requests from new ministries who have received no Bibles or a limited number of Bibles.  Since we have limited financial resources, due to the growing number of ministries waiting to receive Bibles, we will limit the number of bibles we give out free to 100 Bibles [the average is 40 and for large congregations 60-100]. We do not guarantee that we will give you all the Bibles you need. We feel that some free Bibles will help. We will leave this list of names up for a month and then file them in our system. It is our hope that the Bibles you have given will promote a new Godliness in your ministry. God’s richest blessings on you, yours and your ministry.
