Atty. Gerard Mosquera

Atty. Gerard Mosquera, recently elected into the Board of Trustees of the Philippine Bible Society, was appointed by President Benigno Aquino III as Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon.

He leaves his post as commissioner of the Presidential Commission on Good Government to begin a 7-year term as Tanodbayan starting June 1, 2012. During a Prayer Fellowship of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches held at the World Vision offices in Quezon City, bishops, pastors and other ministry workers prayed and pronounced blessings for Atty. Mosquera who is a member of the Capitol City Alliance Church and is one of its elders.

As the new Deputy Ombudsman he will be responsible for investigating and prosecuting government officials accused of crimes, in particular those charged with graft and corruption.

Mosquera placed second in the 1992 Bar exams after graduating with honors from the Ateneo Law School and was a recipient of the Chevening scholarship through which he earned his Master in Laws degree from Kings College, University of London.

He is also an awardee of the Lucius N. Littauer Award for Academic Excellence and Leadership from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. The award is the highest recognition granted by the School for exemplary academic achievement, public service and leadership.

Before his appointment to the PCGG, he was chief of party of the USAID’s anti-corruption programs in Timor-Leste from 2005-2010, and was technical adviser for anti-corruption to the United Nations Mission of Support in East Timor. Atty. Gerard is married to dentist Dr. Myra Nissa Pahm-Mosquera with whom he has four kids.

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.
