Bible Reading Time, Bonding Time

Testimony_Doris Nuñezca.v2.1As Barangay Secretary, Doris Nuñezca helps in the feeding program for children in their village. “We not only nourish them physically, but spiritually as well. Before we start the feeding, we tell the children stories from the Bible. They love it!” she said.
She added that this regular engagement with God’s Word serves to remind her to connect with the Lord. “Before, I don’t usually read my Bible. This simple storytelling of familiar Bible stories effectively reminds me to open my Bible and feed my relationship with God,” Doris shared.
Doris and her husband, who are also active members of Couples for Christ-Families for Life, both enjoy delving into the Word at home. “Since we were able to get our own copies of the Bible through the MTBO Bible Campaign, we now regularly read and share what we learned or what we heard in Mass. This was significant for our daughter, as it became our bonding time as a family,” she said.
Usually, she explained, they read the Bible when they got back from Bible study or from hearing Mass, especially if they “missed the First and Second Reading or if the homily was unclear.” Doris said that they would read from God’s Word when they got home before sharing their thoughts, ask questions, or simply meditate on the Word.
“As we read together, we became closer as a family. It also allowed me to become more intimate with my, as I am always by her side to guide her, giving her advice as she grows,” Doris said.

“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.”
