PBS Partners with ION on MNL Confab

The International Orality Network (ION) Manila Conference was held on November 27-28, 2015 at the Grace Christian Church, Quezon City. Keynote speakers were Dr. David Swarr, President and CEO of the 4.2.20 Foundation and the Executive Director of ION, and Rev. Samuel Chiang, President and CEO of the Seed Company and Senior Associate for Orality of the Lausanne Congress.
The afternoon seminar-workshops had intensive treatment on Great Commission strategies on engaging Oral Cultures such as, Oral Bible Storying, Arts in Missions – Ethnoarts, Language and Culture Learning – Salitaral, Missions Research Among Oral Cultures, How the Bible Came to Us.
The Philippine Bible Society had the privilege of hosting a welcome dinner for the ION keynote speakers as well as its local partner organizations (PLS, CPLI, SILP, TAP, AGST, PABATS PMA/PCEC, Biblica/PJM) last November 26, and was held at the 3rd floor PBS ministry center.
The International Orality Network (ION) is a prime mover of the global orality movement. ION Philippines is an alliance of individuals, churches, missions, and like-minded associations committed to making Christ-disciples of Oral learners. ION is a strategic priority component of the third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in October 2010 in Capetown, South Africa, and a collegial body of mission organizations and movements like Call2All, Campus Crusade for Christ, Summer Institute of Linguistics, Wycliffe Bible Translators, Faith Comes by Hearing, Global Recordings Network, Heart Sounds, International Mission Board, One Story Partnership, Youth With A Mission, and Trans World Radio, to name a few.

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.

It's an honor and a privilege for me to support the Philippine Bible Society - to reach out to the unreachable people by giving Bibles not only in the Philippines but the whole world.

“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.
