Excited to Start, Ready to Grow: Adopt a Church Bible Distribution

Sept 26, 2018

The Philippine Bible Society (PBS) recently finished conducting the Adopt a Church Training Program last June 13, 2018 and immediately went to work on preparing three Bible distribution expeditions in Rizal and Bulacan.

Bibles and discipleship materials were distributed to the following churches: Unida Ecumenical Church in Tanay, Rizal on June 17, Dawn Harvest Church Philippines in Marilao, Bulacan on June 23, and Shepherd’s Church in Hills of Zion in Talim Island, Rizal on June 24.

Local church members were interviewed and asked about their Bible distribution experience. A few recipients revealed how members in their churches really had no Bibles of their own prior to the distribution. That is why many of the responses showed an overflow of gratitude, simplicity, and joy.

How will the Bibles and discipleship materials you received help you and your fellow churchmates?

“It will really help us and encourage us because we have more materials. Before, we were really lacking. Now, our Bible studies will be improved.”

– Michael Herrera (Tanay, Rizal)

“We are thankful since each individual now has a Bible. Our members will no longer have a hard time reading. Thank you also for the discipleship materials for these will help all in getting to know Jesus and to know how to be a better Christian.”

– Pastor Eric Bulante (Talim Island, Rizal)

How important is the Bible and discipleship?

“The Bible is what you need to read in the morning each day to guide you in all you do. This is where I learned of God’s love. We will work hard to share what we learned from the Bible with others.”

– Lorna Custodio (Tanay, Rizal)

Let us pray for those who benefited from this recent Adopt a Church Bible distribution. May they grow in their faith and may their small groups multiply further. And for the donors who continue to make this project possible, the Lord bless you indeed!

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.”

“Philippine Bible Society organizes trainings that really respond to the needs of people who are suffering.
It has well-equipped leaders who facilitate trainings and workshops.
Its mission to reach out to Filipinos using God’s Word is fulfilled through its works.”

“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.
