Bible Society Is Recognized During Save Africa's Children Music Festival

NEW YORK, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- The American Bible Society will share the stage with award winning Gospel and recording artists Yolanda Adams, Pieces of a Dream, Kirk Whalum and other entertainers at the First Annual Save Africa's Children Music Festival. During the festival, the Bible Society will be honored for its new alliance with Save Africa's Children. The concert is on Friday, September 26, at the West Angeles Cathedral, 3600 Crenshaw Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, at 7:00 p.m.

Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr., Presiding Bishop of the Church of God in Christ and Senior Pastor of West Angeles Church of God in Christ, will present Dr. Lamar Vest, American Bible Society's Executive Vice President for Global Scripture Ministries, with a plaque of appreciation. Bishop Blake is the founder and President of the Pan-African Children's Fund/Save Africa's Children.

Save Africa's Children (SAC) is an African-American organization, providing direct support to children affected by HIV/AIDS, poverty and war throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. Since its founding in 2001, with a one million dollar donation from Academy Award winning actor Denzel Washington, SAC has assisted over 400 orphan care programs in 21 African nations, reaching over 200,000 HIV/AIDS-affected children.

"The seeds for this initiative began this past April in Memphis, when representatives of the Bible Society, as a contributing sponsor to Bishop Blake's Pan African Leadership Summit, attended the Summit's commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.," said Dr. Vest. "By working together we impact the lives of children on spiritual and physical levels, and carry out the Bible Society's mission of making the Bible available to every person in a language and format that each can understand and afford, so that all may experience its life-changing message."

The American Bible Society is donating Bibles for distribution in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa and Zambia. The effort is being coordinated with several Bible Societies in Africa to ensure that the Bibles are in the appropriate languages.
