The Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya is home to 127,000 refugees from over ten African nations. One of the greatest needs in churches in Kakuma is Bibles in African languages. Few churches in the camp have more than a handful of Bibles. Northwood outreach partner Tom Albinson and the ministry he leads, the International Association for Refugees (IAFR), is working to change that by providing one Bible for every Christian refugee household. IAFR estimates the total need in Kakuma is 10,000 Bibles and already nearly 2,000 have been purchased by IAFR in eight different languages (English, Kiswahili, Turkana, Amharic, Nuer, Arabic, Oromo and Dinka). This Christmas Eve Northwood Church will take a special offering to provide additional Bibles for the believers and churches in Kakuma. The offering will be given to IAFR who will work with the Kenyan Bible Society to provide Bibles for people in the camp. Please pray and consider what God is inviting you to give so that a refugee family can have a Bible in their own language. God bless you for your generosity and kindness.
Checks can be made payable to Northwood Church but should be designated, “Bibles for Refugees.”
