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.
