New BibleHouse Opens in San Juan

Story 8_biblehouse
Out of a passion to help the Church and its sheep, an ordinary layperson opens a new BibleHouse in San Juan City, Manila.
In partnership with the Philippine Bible Society, Mr. Filemon Salcedo III opened a BibleHouse he named “Justice Raoul & Lily Victorino’s BibleHouse” and officially launched it on his birthday last March 16. He shares that he named the bookstore after Justice Victorino whom he came across in a circumstance of kindness and service. This new branch of Scripture source is his offering of praise and gratefulness for the compassion they received from someone he didn’t even know.

Mr. Salcedo recalled that some years ago, Justice Victorino graciously provided transportation for one of their important church activities. This act of generosity deeply struck him especially since Justice Victorino was a total stranger and not in any way affiliated to their church. Mr. Salcedo hopes that this BibleHouse would be used by God to also help others as he intends to devote all its profits to financially support church leaders and ministers.
The blessing and launch was graced by Mr. Salcedo’s church family, together with PBS representatives including General Secretary Nora Lucero and Associate General Secretary Perry Cartera. Former San Juan Vice Mayor Francis Zamora and District 1 City Councilor Raissa Laurel-Subijano, who also happened to be Justice Victorino’s former student in law school, celebrated with them.
This new BibleHouse is located at San Juan Commercial Center, 108 N. Domingo Street, San Juan City.
 

“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.
