As they left, the Gideons noticed a small, hand-written sign attached to the rear of the motorcycle. Several months earlier, Gideons in the city of Nyeri had begun to organize an International Scripture Blitz.
Nyeri is the largest city in Nyeri county, and it serves as both the commercial center for trading crops harvested from surrounding farmlands, as well as the gateway for tourists to access nearby national parks and safari lodges.
