PBS Presents at the Youth for Chist Global Leaders Summit

Last August 13, 2011, the Philippine Bible Society presented the May They Be One Bible Campaign and the Handwritten Unity Bible Project at the Youth for Christ Global Leaders Summit held at 1Esplanade in Pasay City. The 3-day summit with the theme, “D.O.S.E. of Christ” was attended by over 200 YFC leaders hailing from all over the country and across the globe who have gathered together to further strengthen their leadership capabilities as Christ’s ambassadors.
The 2nd day of the leaders’ summit consisted of various programs updating the leaders about YFC’s current agendas, which include Cross-Culture missions abroad and the Liveloud concert which encourages the members to compose worship songs for the YFC community. The program also includes a Social Media Workshop conducted by Kids for Christ International Coordinator Voltz Lizardo.
Philippine Bible Society Communications Manager Hazel Alviz lead the presentation and encouraged the leaders to take part on this major campaign that aims to distribute five million Bibles to five million poor Filipino families in a span of seven years. She emphasized the importance of the campaign as sixty percent of our nation’s population do not own a Bible, which is an alarming fact considering that we are a predominantly Christian country. The leaders are then presented with a challenge to remedy this by getting involved with the campaign to help put a Bible in every Filipino home which is its primary goal. The Handwritten Unity Bible, a fundraising project for the MTBO campaign and a first-of-its-kind in the country, was also highlighted through a short but moving video presentation. The presentation ended on a good note as the delegates responded well by expressing their interest to the campaign and how they could get involved in it.

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.
