Traveling Bible Stops at Baltimore School

By Taashi Rowe


Baltimore Junior Academy students Mya Jackson, Makiyal Hendricks and Hemel Hamilton read the traveling Bible.

Students at Allegheny East Conference’s Baltimore Junior Academy in Baltimore were excited to view an international Bible on its way to the General Conference Session in Atlanta. They were filled with questions and were amazed to learn that the book was written in 66 languages and has visited about 150 cities in more than 100 countries that included Israel and Haiti. During Bible visits, host cities organize parades, concerts and guest speakers.

Leaders of the worldwide Seventh-day Adventist Church initiated the tour partly to renew excitement about reading the Bible among the church’s 16 million members and partly to spark conversation. The Bible began its world tour in Manila, Philippines, in October 2008, and will end its journey on June 24 in Atlanta.
