Kenya has a high muslim population especially in the city. It is our desire to share Christ by passing out Bibles and simply talking to those we meet! Moreover, Bibles are expensive for many African families to buy. Some families share a Bible within the entire family, while others may have never owned a Bible. The Bibles we pass out are many times a person's very first Swahili or English Bibles.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
