THE BIBLE GOES ON THE AIR
Fulfilling its mandate to bring the Word of God to Filipinos wherever they may be, the Philippine Bible Society (PBS) partners with the Far East Broadcasting Company Philippines to make God’s Word available online via the internet Radio, Pinoy Connection. A brainchild of Programming and New Media Director, Mr. Ef Pallorina, Pinoy Connection was launched last June 1, 2013 during FEBC’s 65th Anniversary. Accessed through pinoyconnection.ph, it specifically caters to Filipinos living and working abroad.
PBS produces two Scripture-based programs: Paglalakbay and 10 minutes with the Lord, which aim to inspire and encourage Pinoys abroad through daily inspirations from the Bible.
10 minutes with the Lord airs Mondays through Fridays as a feature in the program Inspirasyon hosted by Ms. Cindy Lacanilao. It provides daily themes and scripture text for reflection. Meanwhile, Paglalakbay is a 30-minute audio bible study aired Saturdays and Sundays. It seeks to provide God’s view into daily circumstances while equipping overseas Pinoys to become better Filipino Christians. The voices behind these segments are Dr. Nora Lucero, PBS General Secretary and Ms. Hazel Salariosa-Alviz, Communications Manager. “Mahirap mahiwalay sa ating pamilya pero nariyan ang Biblia na sasama sa atin sa panahon ng pag-iisa o kapag may problema. Ang Salita ng Diyos ang magbibigay sa atin ng kalakasan at inspirasyon,” Alviz explains. Paglalakbay shares Biblical insights, reflections by and for OFWs, stories of transformation, music and trivia to accompany the listener in his/her journey or Paglalakbay through foreign lands. The program is named after the Paglalakbay Bible, a PBS publication specifically for the OFW.
