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.
