PCEC
Associate General Secretary of Philippine Bible Society, Mrs. Victoria Esperanza Cartera, was recently elected as Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches in the Philippines (PCEC). PCEC is the largest network of evangelical denominations, local churches, and para-churches and mission organizations for a transformed and Christ-centered Philippines.
The election was held during the 31st National Assembly of PCEC at the Widus Convention Center in Mabalacat, Pampanga from July 9 to 11, 2015. Close to 201 leaders from different churches, organizations and denominations joined the special event to converge, strategize and fellowship with one another. It was also a time of prayer for leaders and their ministries.
Mrs. Cartera will serve the PCEC Board from 2015 to 2017 along with Bishop Ellie Mercado, Chairman; Bishop Manny Carlos, Vice-Chairman; Dan Andrew Cura, Secretary and Board Members: Dr. Reynaldo Avante, Bishop Joe Dalino, Dr. Nomer Bernardino, Bishop Albert Patacsil, Bishop Val Chaves, and Rev. Stephen Punzalan.
PCEC also celebrated its 50th anniversary with the theme “One Master, One Message, One Mission,” based on Matthew 28:18-20. Outgoing members of the Board were recognized for their service. Among them was our General Secretary, Dr. Nora G. Lucero, who was Treasurer of the PCEC Board of Trustees from 2011 to 2015.
PBS rejoices with PCEC, a long-time partner in the Scripture ministry, as they reach five decades of service in the ministry of Scripture distribution and church-building.

“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.
