In its continuing efforts to bring hope and comfort from God’s Word to children suffering from various illnesses, the Philippine Bible Society (PBS) conducted another Scripture distribution at the East Avenue Medical Center (EAMC) in Quezon City on July 20, 2005.

During the visit at EAMC, young patients received copies of Scripture coloring books and comics along with a simple snack. At the hospital’s playroom, PBS staff entertained young patients and their guardians with songs and stories from the Bible. The Bible Society, headed by Communications and Development Manager Juliet Jimeno, also presented copies of the Children’s Bible sa Wikang Filipino to Dr. Ma. Victoria Abesamis, EAMC’s Chief of Medical Professional Staff. The Children’s Bible and copies of comics and coloring books will be placed at the Migi’s Corner, the hospital’s play area named after Miguel Francisco Miguel Babao-Guballa, a four-year-old child who died of a congenital heart disease. Migi’s Corner serves as a “comfort zone” for kids whose childhood is interrupted by frequent visits and stay at the hospital.

The staff also distributed Scriptures and snack at the pediatric ward. This is the fourth distribution effort sponsored by PBS since May. Earlier distribution activities brought Scriptures to young patients in government hospitals – the Philippine Heart Center, Philippine Children’s Medical Center, National Children’s Hospital, and Philippine General Hospital.
The Bible Society, a non-profit, non-stock interconfessional organization, distributes Scriptures for children to bring hope, comfort and assurance of God’s love to kids – who suffer from various health conditions – and their families.

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.
