Your gifts help fund the airfare to and from Kenya, transportation (taxis, boats, etc), accommodation, and fees for the 10-day conference.

Empower A Local Leader

We believe that every community should have the chance to read the Bible in the language they know best, led by people they trust and respect. Your financial gifts and prayers enable us to help a leader in Sierra Leone bring God’s Word into the many languages of their people.
