Run for a cause and help put a Bible in every Filipino home
On March 3, 2012, Philippine Bible Society will spearhead a fun run in support of the May They Be One Bible campaign which will also coincide with the National Bible Week festivities. This historic event billed as the May They Be One Bible Run, is a run like no other as it will bring different sectors of society and various faith persuasions to run in unity for one cause – to bring God’s Word and message of hope to the Filipino people.The May They Be One Bible Run is part of a nationwide campaign of the same name that aims to bring 5 million Bibles to 5 million poor Filipino families in 7 years. It was launched in response to a nationwide survey that showed 60% of Filipinos do not have a copy nor access to the Bible. The proceeds of this event will go to the production of MTBO Bibles.
Inspired by the prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ in John 17:21,“May they be one, so that the world will believe that you sent Me”, the May They Be One (MTBO) Campaign is a joint project of the Philippine Bible Society (PBS), Episcopal Commission for the Biblical Apostolate, National Council of Churches in the Philippines, Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches, Chinese Congress Center on World Evangelization Fellowship Philippines, Inc. , and other like-minded groups who believe that genuine national transformation can only be achieved through the guidance and transforming power of God’s Word.
Let us run for the Bible to be known throughout the Nation. Let us run for the Word of God to be alive in our lives. Run for a cause! Be part of history and help bring a much-needed change in our society!
