Handwritten Unity Bible Writing Session at PBS


The PBS staff writing the Bible by hand

Last August 24, 2011, the Philippine Bible Society Staff finally get the chance to be part of history as they take turns in writing the Bible by hand at a Handwritten Unity Bible Session conducted exclusively for them during their staff fellowship. The staff, despite being all too familiar already with the project, are still elated and anxious nonetheless to take part in the activity as this was the first time that they would be involved in the actual handwriting session. Most, if not all were tense as they finally get the turn to write after a brief orientation, for fear that they might commit the slightest mistake.

Furthermore, like the other participants in previous writing sessions, the staff felt very much privileged to become part of this historic undertaking as the Handwritten Unity Bible is the first-of-its-kind in the country. Verses from Psalm 102 – 104 were allocated to each of the staff prior to the handwriting session in order to give them time to practice writing their verses. Thanks to the generous donations of the staff who were more than willing to give to the cause, this HUB writing session managed to raise P16,710.00.

The 2-year HUB project which is in support of the May They Be One Bible campaign, aims to gather Filipinos nationwide to write 35, 489 verses from the 78 books of the Bible, including the Deuterocanonical books. It also aims to raise Php30 million for the May They Be One campaign, which will be use to produce five million Bibles for five million families in a span of seven years. 

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's an honor and a privilege for me to support the Philippine Bible Society - to reach out to the unreachable people by giving Bibles not only in the Philippines but the whole world.

“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.”

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.
