116th Anniversary of the PBS and the 100th Celebration of the Pangasinan Bible

2015 marks the 116th year of Philippine Bible Society’s ministry in the country.  For more than a century, the Lord has graciously sustained the Bible work through varying seasons.  The PBS ministry of making the Word of God known to every Filipino and of providing them an opportunity to encounter God in His Words through different translations, remains steadfast.  Along with the Anniversary, we will also celebrate the 100th year of the Pangasinan Bible – a century of God’s faithfulness through the PBS ministry.
To commemorate these two remarkable events in the history of Bible ministry in the Philippines, PBS will spearhead a grand celebration on November 7, 2015 at the Sison Auditorium, Lingayen, Pangasinan.  Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan and Chief Justice Reynato Puno (Ret.), the PBS President and Chairman will share the message on the National Bible Week theme for 2016: “God’s Word: Hope for the Family, Strength of the Nation.”  Scripture-engagement activities, the Bible Relevance in Modern-times Seminar (BRIMS) and the Roving Bible Museum (RBM), will be held to promote the Bible.  The main events of the two-fold celebration are as follows:

  1. Bible Relevance in Modern Times Seminar (BRIMS)

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

Jorge BianesLocal Church Elder at LJOR Unified Commonwealth

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
