MTBO Testimony: Every need met

FINANCIAL difficulties were a dark and familiar companion of Letty de Mesa and her family. In the first year of her marriage, her husband Arthur lost his job and so the couple had to resort to odd jobs to sustain themselves. Theirs was a hand-to-mouth existence, even when the babies came. To make matters worse, Arthur got into the drinking habit with his buddies. In 2009, Letty received a May They Be One Bible during Bible distribution at her parish, Our Lady of Guadalupe, in Marikina. Getting her own copy of the Bible got Letty into the Bible reading habit. This encouraged the other de Mesa family members to also start reading the Word. Letty‘s husband and children began going to church regularly. God’s Word and church going gave Arthur power to cut off drinking ties with his bud-dies. What the de Mesas learned from the Word, they also shared with their neighbors. As the family gave honor to the Word, God took care of their practical needs. After many years of joblessness, Arthur finally found regular employment. The eldest de Mesa child graduated from college and got a job at a company where he now actively shares God’s Word among officemates. The second child is a working student. The 3rd De Mesa child passed the qualifying exams at the National Police Commission. The 4th child is now in her 4th year in college. God has lifted the de Mesa’s up from the pangs of hunger and deprivation because they have come to know the Lord their Shepherd from His Word. Letty’s favorite passage is found in Psalm 23 which begins with the verse The Lord is my shepherd, I have everything I need.

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.”

“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.
