The Bible Society of Nigeria has assured the Church that it would continue to play its role to make the written Word of God available to promote kingdom work.
The Society also stated that with the desired support from the Church, the written Word of God would be more accessible to the Christian Community in the country.
This assurance was given in Port Harcourt Monday by the Chairman, Rivers/Bayelsa Area of the Society, Elder Omoni Ayo-Tamuno at the Christ Apostolic Church, Tourist Bleach Road, Port Harcourt while addressing the congregation as part of the Founders’ Day Celebration.
Elder Ayo-Tamuno, however, said ” it is becoming near impossible for the Society to deliver on its mandate due to the high exchange rate. He stressed that with the full support of the church, the society is ready to make the Bible available “.
” The Society is still in the front banner of playing the role of worthy assistance to the Church in providing the Bible to meet up its kingdom work.
“The field is ready for harvest but the workers are not available because a good number of our pastors or Christians are not giving the Society the needed cooperation “.
Elder Ayo-Tamuno observed that the Churches had not been cooperating with the Society in the past, and expressed the hope that the present leadership of the Church would change the narratives for better.
He noted with delight that the present leadership of the Church being a special member of the Society would impact positively by supporting the Society.
He appealed to the Church to source for its copies of the Bible from the Society to enhance the area achieve its Bible distribution target as demanded by the BSN Headquarters and thanked the Church for the opportunity to visit the Church.
Speaking later, the Superintendent of the Coordinating Council of the Borikiri District of the Church, Pastor Isaac O. Oke said without the intervention of the Society, it would have been very difficult to access the Bible in our churches.
Pastor Oke pledged that the Churches under the District would support the Society and commended the team for the visit.
Highlight of the occasion was the presentation of new Testament Bibles and other BSB literatures to the Church.
