READING, England — United Bible Societies (UBS) has named the Rev A. Miller Milloy as its new General Secretary. The appointment was announced by the UBS Global Board at its meeting in São Paulo, Brazil, earlier this month.

Mr Milloy, 58, has been the UBS Acting General Secretary since January this year, following the departure of the former General Secretary, Neil Crosbie.
Commenting on the appointment, the Chair of the Global Board, Sally Shoemaker Robinson, said, “We are delighted to have been able to make this appointment. Miller made a great contribution to the work of UBS in leading the Europe-Middle East Region, and as UBS Acting General Secretary he has shown conclusively over the past 11 months that he has much more to offer at what is in many ways a decisive time for the movement.”
One of Mr Milloy’s major tasks as Acting General Secretary was to organise August’s UBS World Assembly, when 300 delegates from 142 national Bible Societies gathered to celebrate the Bible Society movement’s bicentenary and to determine its direction over the next few years.
Originally from Ayrshire, south west Scotland, he joined UBS in 1997 as Regional Secretary of its Europe-Middle East Region. In that role he was active in developing relationships between UBS and the Orthodox Churches.
After his appointment, Mr Milloy said the Fellowship had bestowed on him a great honour and a great responsibility.
“As I begin to come to terms with all the demands of this new office,” he said, “I ask for your patience, your understanding and your prayers. In return, I pledge you my fullest support.”
Prior to being appointed to head the Europe-Middle East Region, Mr Milloy was an Adviser in Mission and Evangelism for the Church of Scotland. He was ordained in 1979 after completing his theological studies at Glasgow University, and until 1992 served in pastoral ministry. He is married with two grown-up children.

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.

“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.”

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.
