Kawit Mayor Tik Aguinaldo opens the Bible reading during i-Proclaim!


Philippine Bible Society in partnership with the local government of Kawit, Cavite officially kicked off the National Bible Week 2012 celebration last January 13 at the Aguinaldo Shrine with a continuous 12-hour public oral Bible reading, more popularly known as i-Proclaim!. Launched in 2010 by PBS in partnership with other Christian organizations, the i-Proclaim! is a campaign that aims to bring God’s Word closer to Filipinos and encourage everyone to explore its riches and relevance.
In conjunction with this year’s NBW theme, “Pagpapahayag ng Salita ng Diyos Tungo sa Pagbabago” (Proclaiming God’s Word Towards National Transformation), it is only fitting that the historic Aguinaldo Shrine, the place where our independence was first proclaimed, was chosen as the venue for i-Proclaim!. The Bible reading was continuously held from 8AM to 8PM interspersed with song and dance performances courtesy of representatives from the local churches and schools in the various municipalities of Cavite. The program then capped off with a band concert in the evening. A total of 250 readers participated in the program, among them were Kawit Mayor Tik Aguinaldo, representatives from FEBC, SIL, TAP Wycliffe, Philippine Missionary Institute, NCCP, and various local churches in Cavite.
This year’s i-Proclaim! was another success as people from all walks of life came together in one place to read God’s Word, setting aside their differences all for His glory. Through this celebration PBS hopes that our nation will finally achieve unity and transformation through God’s Word.

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 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.
