God saves those who trust in His Word
The Bibliarasal de Navotas Divine Services (BINDS), a movement in Navotas that is actively involved in the May They Be One Bible (MTBO) campaign, testifies that miracles happen to those who believe God and His Word.
Just when people were expecting Navotas to be submerged into the heavy floods brought by typhoon Ondoy, a miracle spared their city such that no part was damaged. Believing this to be God’s act of grace, BINDS held a thanksgiving hour to the Lord on October 1  and also held a fundraising project Sept 27-Oct. 9 to help victims of  the flood.  BINDS, founded by Bro. Frank Reyes, meets in small groups every week to study  the Word of God using MTBO Bibles and seeks to live the Scriptures in daily life.

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.

“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.
