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!
