Members of the Board of Trustees, the Management, and a few other staff from the Philippine Bible Society (PBS) made their way to South Korea last May 7, 2018 for the Board Development and Retreat program.

 

This annual program is beneficial to PBS because it allows the leaders to develop and recommend programs for the improvement of the organization as a whole. Aside from training and leadership development, this program allows for other team building activities as well.

 

This year’s training was the first of its kind. What makes it unique is the fact that the focus was on leadership. There was heavy emphasis on discipline and service. It was also an opportunity to be acquainted with the ministry and binding operation of the Korean Bible Society as the group visited its offices.

 

After having gone through the whole experience, many expressed their re-fueled love for the Philippines. Others admitted to the shift in their mindsets towards discipline, sacrifice, and growth.

When asked about his time at the Canaan Farmers School, Mr. Gus Arguelles shared, “Great, fantastic. Every person who is called to lead and guide others should experience the Canaan spirit.”

One thing is certain. Those who attended this five-day retreat learned a lot about stewardship and sacrifice. They learned that Christ has already finished everything for us and our task now is to continue His mission. This mission entails sacrifice. We sacrifice because of love.

 

We are grateful to the Lord for giving our leaders opportunities such as this. Now, they are even more united in their passion and commitment towards making our vision a reality and carrying out our mission faithfully.

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.
