PBS, TOPIC Hold Seminars in Tacurong, Cotabato

Philippine Bible Society (PBS) Translation Manager Rev. Edgar Ebojo joined the Trainors of Pastors International Coalition-Philippines (TOPIC) in a series of seminars held in the cities of Tacurong and Cotabato in Mindanao.

In Tacurong City, the TOPIC team, composed of national coordinator Mr. Philip Flores and pastors Nathan Costes and Gil Balignasay, offered courses on Teamwork, Simplified Bible Study, and Leading Leaders, to local pastors and church leaders.

Meanwhile, Rev. Ebojo tackled “Deuterocanonical Books” and “Textual Criticism and Bible Translation.”  He also took the time to introduce the Bible Ministry to his 14 students, especially on the PBS’ translation process and principles.
Rev. Ebojo was also able to gather feedback on one of the PBS products, which “gave the impression that while the format was appreciated, the language seemed to have been a turn-off,” as it was not in the preferred language of church leaders and pastors in Sultan Kudarat.
In Cotabato City, after passing through MILF camps and military checkpoints, he again linked up with TOPIC, and gave the same lectures to 18 pastors and church leaders during the leg of the seminar there.  PBS Davao Regional Auxiliary Bible Officer Rev. Elde Jabonera, whoa arrived in the city a day before the seminar, assisted Rev. Ebojo in promoting the PBS ministry and its products.

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.
