A thanksgiving service was held to commemorate the establishment of the Philippine Bible Society as the Bible depot in Manila by the American Bible Society, through Rev. Jay C. Goodrich, in November 30, 1899. Bishop Nathanael Lazaro, who is the PBS President and Chairman, shared an inspiring message about the call for unity in challenging times to affirm and encourage  the staff in their labor for God’s Word.

Jun Vencer receiving his complimentary copy of the bookof the 100 Ways to Live the Word—a collection of life testimonies of influential people from different sectors of the Philippine society that affirms the power of the Bible in transforming lives. Originally titled Bible Champions, the book took more than a year before it was published and was finally launched last November 25, 2009 at the PBS Ministry Hall. Perfectly coinciding with the PBS’ 110th Anniversary, the launch of the book confirms that the transformation of the nation begins with the transformation of ordinary lives dedicated to live the Word of God.

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.

“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.
