Bible Fun Run Registration is Open

The Philippine Bible Society (PBS) Communications Department announced the opening of registration for the Bible Fun Run slated for January 24, 2015.
The announcement came after the fourth meeting of the Inter-Church Consultative and Advisory Group (ICCAG) last August 14 at the PBS Ministry Facility in UN Avenue, Manila.
PBS has released registration kits, including the official registration forms, to its partner churches and organizations. As such, expected is the confirmation of names for the first batch of registrants in the coming weeks. Communications OIC Raymond Francisco added that while the 2015 Bible Fun Run will be localized in every city or municipality, it will be synchronized all across all regions in the Philippines.
Francisco shared that for only PHP 300, one can participate in the 5-kilometer fun run and write a verse from the Bible for the historic Handwritten Unity Bible (HUB) writing event to be held during the 2015 Bible Fun Run. “A substantial portion of the registration fee will support the May They Be One Bible (MTBO) Campaign which will make available Bibles to five million poor Filipino families,” Francisco added.
The ICCAG is composed of representatives from various churches, parishes, and organizations from the faith councils that partner with the Bible Society in preparing for the annual National Bible Week (NBW) celebrations.
In its regular monthly meetings this year, the ICCAG finalized the theme for next year’s NBW celebration: “Sharing God’s Word, Empowering the Poor, Transforming the Land,” and the details of the Bible Run.

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 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.
