THE Bible and Christian literatures are very important for the development of our children and vital to help shape their future.
This is an advice from the Adventist Book Centre (ABC) Solomon Islands Office as its Gizo branch in Western Province stages a five-day open day event.
The annual event is held during this time of the year in Auki, Gizo and Honiara.
And in Western Province, the event is now underway near the Gizo main market, allowing members of the public, including Christians, to take advantage of the specials that are being offered for the books on display.
“It is now time of the year for Adventist Book Centre Open Days. And so, for Gizo, Western Province, it is Monday October 24th to Friday October 28th at the Gizo market area in front of the lock up shops,” the statement said.
ABC is encouraging Gizo residents and surrounding islands to make use of this opportunity.
“There is no greater value in learning than to read the Bible and Christian literature.
“These books greatly aid our children’s development and growth in their understanding of their immediate environment and world around them, shaping their world view,” the statement said.
For Honiara residents, similar event will be held in a fortnight at the Kukum SDA Church carpark from Sunday November 6 to Tuesday November 8.
“We also encourage all you Christian friends in and around Honiara to visit our stall on these three days and buy something of value for yourself, children and family. Or a special gift for a loved one.
“May God bless you all as you contemplate buying ‘Books with Eternal Value’ during these open day events,” the statement said.
During this open day event, most of the books, literatures and camping equipment will be sold at discount prices.
In Gizo, a good number of people have taken time to visit the ABC bookstall to look at the books and various literature materials on sale.
Some have already taken advantage of this event by purchasing books for themselves and their families.
The ABC open day book sales programme will end this Friday.
