Grateful for the "heavy lifting" by the Chinese Community Church youth group
MBS is excited to announce that this year's collection for Bibles, textbooks, and other materials for Kenya are being prepared for shipping! God has continued to provide many churches and individuals who have been able to donate Bibles and books.
In addition to Bibles, this year we gathered textbooks to supply our brothers and sisters in Kenya with resources for learning. The Kenya Library continues to grow but so does our broader outreach in Kenya with the addition of a brand new community gym on site.
Please pray: That God will provide safe passage for this shipment. That He would continue to use these important resources for His purposes in Africa.
It is hard to believe we are about to enter the 4th quarter of ministry in our 208th year! God has given us so many opportunities to provide the scriptures across our city, state, and across the ocean in places like Kenya, Bogata, and Cuba.
Committed to Partnerships
We're happy to continue our local partnerships and begin some new ones, especially our newest partner, A2 Missions, featured in this newsletter!
How to Study the Bible Course
We are thrilled to partner with Perry Hall Baptist Church with the How to Study the Bible course. The class filled up quickly with students eager to study God's Word and grow deeper in a relationship with Him.
New Relationships with Churches and Pastors
We are also currently building new relationships with church planting pastors in Baltimore and strengthening existing relationships across the region. Later this year we will announce a new initiative with American Bible Society with an eye towards reaching every people group with the Word of God. Keep an eye out for that announcement!
Free Presentation for Your Church!
Simple Starts is a free presentation given by Dave Moyer about reading the Bible well. It is designed to get students and adults regularly reading God's Word and beginning, or continuing, a life long journey of walking with Him. It is being presented at churches and ministries and people are walking away energized and excited to read the Bible.
If you would like to have Dave Moyer present Simple Starts at your church, youth group or ministry, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Partner Spotlight: A2 Missions
A2 Missions is a ministry that provides avenues for churches to reach their own communities in Europe.
The ministry is involved in training nationals in evangelism, outreach, and discipleship. They believe that churches are the primary agent that God uses to reach people. They raise up local churches to reach people in their own community. This leads to long-term sustainability. Through this model they are able to have an impact in not just one location and mission field but have an opportunity to have an impact in many communities.
The need is great in Europe as Christianity has been rapidly declining over the past century. Most Europeans now do not even own their own Bible and many have never seen a Bible.
