What now?

Jochebed and the rest of the Israelites were living in Egypt, and were oppressed for who they were: worshipers of God. Thankfully today it is easier to be a worshiper of God in Egypt.

The Bible Society in Northern Ireland is helping to raise funds for the Kingo Festivals in Egypt. These festivals are an important part of the ministry of the Bible Society of Egypt. Kingo the big friendly lion teaches kids the Bible, Christian morals and how the Bible is relevant to their everyday life. He makes learning about the Bible fun and interactive to children and young people all over Egypt.

The Bible Society in Northern Ireland helps to raise vital funds for this project. It couldn’t run without your support. If you and your study group have been inspired by this wonderful project, you can discover more about it here

The Bible Society in Northern Ireland is delighted to be supporting this project in 2019.
