Latest update from Kenya from Babley Ateke, co founder of the GAP Ministry.
“Since yesterday, the carpenters and I have been constructing together. Today we have finished the library, next will be the bookstore. My church and my friends are very happy as they see things happening, they will be able to study the word of God.”
The ship is expected in port on November 13th. It appears that the book store will be ready!
On September 14th, 2014, the Maryland Bible Society presented the MBS Bible Sunday Programwhich was held at Forge Road Bible Chapel to excellent reviews. This program combines the love of and appreciation for God’s Word with the spiritual and historical aspects of the MBS Historic Collection in a way that seems remarkable.
MBS continues to encourage the donations of used Bibles, bible related study materials and biblical literature (adult, teens and children). We were overwhelmed by the speed and generosity with which many of you responded for the first shipment. We encourage all of you to continue giving.
Hidden away in the copious records of the MBS’s Historic Collection are many of the organization’s Annual Reports. While such reports can be very dry and boring, the Report of 1815 is anything but. The timely and beautiful message below is taken from the Report of the Board of Managers of the Bible Society of Baltimore at its Fifth Annual Meeting on September 25, 1815.
The human skeleton, made up of over 240 bones fits together perfectly. Each bone is beautifully shaped and has a dedicated purpose. These bones fit together to accomplish one great purpose…..to keep you together, upright and functioning. If one of your bones is out of place or broken, you will soon know it. Ouch! Just so, the body of humanity has bones meant to fit together just as perfectly.
