Meet the mother and son who give out free Bibles on Lincoln’s High Street
A mother and son who hand out free Bibles to the Lincoln people each week said they were there to spread kindness, although not everyone is interested.
Eva Twesigye, 39, and her son Elijah Ssegawa, 12, from North Hykeham drive to the high street every Saturday in rain or shine.
Your stand includes various religious books as well as the Bible. Eva and Elijah stated that they are committed to serving the community by sharing their kindness with those who may benefit.
Ms. Twesigye stated that they do not impose their views on people, they are only there for interested people.
“We’re not trying to say,“ Free Bibles, come and get your Bibles!
“We have to know that not many people are interested, but we are there for those who are.”
Elijah shared why he likes doing it with his mother.
“I do this because we can reach people who don’t go to church and otherwise wouldn’t have had a chance.
“I also love meeting different people and the nice comments some people make about me.
Elijah and his mother became close when he taught at home for two years in third and fourth grades.
“We had a lot of quality time that brought us close together and since then we have been closer than ever before,” explained Ms. Twesigye. “Doing this on Saturdays is the activity we like to do together. It makes us share, he’s involved in the conversations I have with the public. “
They also host a group zoom call on Saturdays to read the Bible through with anyone who needs help or wants company. You get different people to talk and Elijah shares his opinion on what he’s read.
Mrs Twesigye added the importance of being kind.
“As humans, we irritate each other, let’s be honest, but it is absolutely necessary to be kind to your community, whether you are religious or not.
“It’s definitely a sense of community.”
Ms. Twesigye and Elijah continue to be determined to hit the main street every week as they feel like they might be missing out on someone to get their booth.
