PBS Participates in the 32nd National Convention of FGBMFI

The 32nd National Convention of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) was held last May 1-3, 2014 at the Summit Circle Hotel in Cebu City with the theme, “Transforming the Marketplace.” The FGBMFI is a network of Christian businessman. Their chapters are located in more than 165 nations across the world. Their mission is to reach men in all nations for Jesus Christ, to call men back to God, to help believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit and to grow spiritually, to train and equip men to fulfill the Great Commission, to provide an opportunity for Christian fellowship and to bring a greater unity among all people in the body of Christ.
Dr. Nora Lucero, PBS General Secretary, attended the Convention last May 2, 2014 and presented the ministries of PBS, particularly the May They Be One (MTBO) Bible Campaign and the Handwritten Unity Bible (HUB). The Bible Campaign is a response to the call of Christ to “be one” (John 17:21). It is a fundraising program of PBS in partnership with Episcopal Commission for the Biblical Apostolate (ECBA) of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP), Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), and other Christian organizations. It aims to raise sufficient funds to enable at least 5 million Bibles to 5 million poor Filipino families – upholding and promoting PBS’ Mission of “Making the Bible Known,” and fulfilling PBS’ Vision of “A Transformed Philippines through God’s Word”. The HUB is a historic, two-year project which aims to raise Bible awareness, foster Christian unity and raise at least PHP 30 million for MTBO Bibles. It was launched during the 2nd anniversary celebration of the MTBO last September 30, 2010.

“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.”

“We are thankful since each individual now has a Bible. Our members will no longer have a hard time reading. Thank you also for the discipleship materials for these will help all in getting to know Jesus and to know how to be a better Christian.”

“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.
