PBS FIND #GINHAWA SA PASKO
The Philippine Bible Society Management and Staff and their families celebrated Christmas in a simple lunch program at the Tramway Bayview Buffet along Roxas Boulevard last December 12, 2015.
PBS General Secretary Dr. Nora Lucero welcomed everyone to the modest gathering and recognized the hard work that the management and staff have put in throughout the year. She also recognized the sacrifices they and their families made in the performance of their duties in advancing making the Bible known.
“As we break bread today, let me give due recognition to the hard work everyone has put in throughout the year, as well as the sacrifices your families put in as you did your work. God sees your work and He is faithful and just to reward and honor that,” Dr. Lucero said.
She also challenged everyone to push on with their work especially with just a few days away from the year’s end. “Let us keep on and continue working for our targets and continue to thrust God to help us finish well,” she said.
For his part, PBS Chaplain Rev. Noli Mendoza, in his short exhortation, reminded everyone of the true message of Christmas. “As we attend parties left and right in the coming weeks, let us remember the true meaning of the season: our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ came to be with us,” he stressed.
Following the sumptuous lunch, the Spiritual Development Committee, the praise and worship team, and outgoing leaders of the different care groups were recognized for their share of helping the spiritual development of their respective members.
Also, donations were made to the institutions and communities reached by the care groups through the Ministry Social Responsibility program in lieu of this year’s staff exchange gift.
