5 Years of Riding to Place a Bible in Every Home
Five years of God’s faithfulness! In a virtual celebration via Zoom on June 26, riders, volunteers, donors, and partners of the Word Riders Philippines (WRP), we saw God’s hand at work throughout its five year saga. There was no denying that God journeyed with the riders in every Bible Ride!
The WRP began in 2015, through the leadership and partnership of Atty. Gerard Mosquera, a former PBS Board of Trustee and the forerunner and dedicated organizer of the WRP. A motorbike enthusiast himself, he saw the opportunity to contextualize and adapt the South African program according to the Philippine setting. For over five years, the Word Riders Philippines has endeavored to become a light in the remote communities where the copies of the bible are not readily available. We continue to hold and behold the power of the Holy Spirit in reaching out to Grade 8 students who need encouragement and sense of worth through the Word of God. Throughout the 11 Bible rides conducted in 11 provinces where 38 national high schools are reached, God has made milestones with the distribution of more than 50,000 copies of the Bible so far! Indeed, God has bigger plans than we set for ourselves!
Although the pandemic postponed the scheduled rides for 2020, and in many ways stretched the capacities of the Team, these seeming setbacks all the more strengthened the determination and willpower to never give up on the mission to ride a Bible in every home. All for the glory and honor of God!
