In Juba alone there are around 200 churches, with an average congregation size of 400. Whilst this is very encouraging, often the only person in the congregation to own a bible is the pastor.

Therefore, one of AID’s major priorities to help strengthen the Church is to provide bibles to get God’s word into the hands of His people.
