Run for the Bibleless 2018 was special to us.God reminding us of His faithfulness by placing great people our way. In attendance was the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya H.E William Samoei Ruto who flagged off The Run. Representatives from different churches, organizations, schools, universities and members of Parliament ran, walked and skated with us. We cannot thank you enough for the prayers and financial support you sent our way. May our good Lord who sees in secret reward you richly. If we were to trust in our own strength, we would not have made it this far. A BIG THANK YOU FROM US: BTL

Word from The Deputy President of Kenya: William Ruto

"We have already made a firm contribution that we will assist BTL and other like minded organizations. We are here today to put a stamp that we stand behind you and will walk all the way until every community in Kenya will read the Bible in their mother tongue. I am confident that God will give us the grace to do so. It is our duty and responsibility knowing the word of God to contribute, walk and sponsor so that those who are not privileged as we are can read the Bible in their languages as well. It is a great pleasure to be co-workers with spiritual leaders and christians in this endeavour to make it possible for all communities in Kenya to not only read the Bible but understand in their language" 



A taste of RFTB2018  

Students of Aquinas High School were not to come for Run for the Bibleless since there were two events that were clashing on the same day; an academic contest and the BTL Run. The CU team prayed that somehow a way would be found for them to attend. Amazingly, their school bus driver said he would commit to wake up early in order to handle both events. And for sure Aquinas High School was among the first of the participants to arrive at Uhuru Gardens.

Besides, they also came with one of their own (Joshua) who is on a wheel chair and in solidarity with their comrade, decided to only do the 4 kms walk so that they could move around with him.

What an exemplification of true brotherhood!

Margaret Love from Wycliffe Bible Translators, Australia could not wait for the #RFTB2018 T-shirt to get to her in order to participate in the Run for the Bibleless in her Australian version. She went ahead and ran a 5km stretch for the Bibleless the same day we held our Run here in Nairobi.

Belvion Antonio, a Deaf Mozambique Sign Language Bible Translator, receives an award from the Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya, William Samoei Ruto, for being the first Deaf person to finish the 2018 Run for the Bibleless race. DOOR International, which translates the Bible to the Deaf community was well represented at the Run.



Emmy Rono, an advocate and a partner of BTL, began hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro on Saturday 24th March to raise USD10,000 to support the work of Bible Translation. She is in the company of 3 of her friends and hopes to complete the hike on 31st March 2018. 

“The work BTL is doing is commendable and is impacting communities.” Says Emmy.

One of the schools in Nairobi raised Ksh 4,000 for #RFTB2018. Majority of the children from this school are from Kiambiu slum and since they could not raise enough funds for the T-shirts, the teacher decided to use the raised money to transport the children to the venue in their home shirts. With Run t-shirt or not, they were not going to be deterred from participating in this event. For many, it was the first time they were stepping into town. They went back home with stories that they had seen the city courtesy of Run for the Bibleless.

Joram the boy who actually ran the 10km and crossed the finish line second in the children’s category, is from this school.

A commendable job from these lovely ones that can be likened to the Widow’s Mite
