Bib, Lia Grace 36th MIBF
Bib and Lia, the Philippine Bible Society’s (PBS) ambassadors to the youth, graced the recently-held 36th Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) last September 16-20, 2015 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City.
PBS Communications Supervisor Raymond Francisco shared that the two were also joined by Bible characters such as, Joseph the Dreamer, Moses, Queen Esther, Zaccheus, and the Apostle Paul, among others.
“Bib, Lia, and the Bible characters who visited our booth to promote the Bible Society and our Scripture materials were a big hit to the guests of the MIBF, especially the young people. A lot of them asked to be photographed with these Bible youth ambassadors,” Francisco said. He added that this also drew a substantial number of people to the Bible Society’s booth displays.
Aside from going around the different booths during the fair, Bib and Lia also hosted a 45-minute segment of the St Paul’s National Bible Quiz Saturday morning. During the said presentation, they introduced the Bible Society’s five-fold ministry: Translation, Printing and Production, Scripture Distribution and Marketing, Scripture Engagement and Advocacy, and, Friend and Fund Raising. They also gave away copies of the Bible as prizes to the audience.
