Kenya (MNN) — Remember that Kenyan Christian we told you about last month? He just graduated from Moody Bible Institute, and he’s starting a training/distribution center in Nairobi.
Executive Director Jason Woolford says Christian Resources International (CRI) is helping on the distribution end.
“We’re getting the Word of God to people that will change them for all eternity,” Woolford states.
At the distribution center, “Pastors, leaders, those seeking to know who God is, can come and get the Word of God absolutely free.”
With your assistance, Kenyan Christians and their leaders can grow in their faith. Click here to help CRI send its first shipment of Bibles and Christian resources to the new center in Nairobi.
The first container is expected to set sail on July 6.
“I’m asking that people will pray and seek after God, but also do,” Woolford says. By sending CRI your gently-used Bibles and Christian books, you can become a “book missionary.”
Or, you can help by sponsoring one of the CRI containers that’s headed for Kenya. Sponsoring a container, Woolford explains, ensures that 35,000 people will receive the Word of God.
“It’s not what we are doing at CRI, but what we’re helping and enabling those that are listening to do…. Become ‘Book Missionaries’ and send God’s Word around the world,” he says.
The new training/distribution center is coming at an important time in Kenya: Islamic terror group al-Shabaab is trying to grow its footprint in East Africa.
On Tuesday, Kenyan authorities reportedly shut down several social media accounts being used by al-Shabaab to recruit young people. Last month, terrorists attacked a Christian university in Nairobi and vowed via Twitter, “Kenyan cities will run red with blood.”
Pray that the new training/distribution center will help Kenyan Christians spread the Gospel and grow in their faith. Pray that they will not be led astray by the teachings of Islam.
Ask God to use the free Bibles and resources supplied by CRI to grow His Kingdom in Kenya.
