Transformed by the Word

Ponciano and Rita Viodor both recognize the transforming power of God’s Word. Reading the Bible regularly has led them to lead their family to live according to God’s truth
Aside from gambling and drinking, Ponciano Viodor also nursed an anger problem. “I become very silent when I get angry. But deep inside, I let my rage seethe. Every time I got furious about something or someone, murderous thoughts filled my head,” he shared.
Meanwhile, his wife Rita also shared that she used to be mean-spirited to people around her. “If we talk about being mean, I would have been number one,” she said.
But that was all in the past.
Since receiving their copies of the Bible, they have turned their back on their former ways and lived life according to God’s Word. “After reading the Bible regularly, I learned what was right and wrong. This had a huge impact on how I lived my life,” Ponciano said.
Rita said that God’s Word also impacted their family life. “The Bible has become our guide, words we live by, especially when we get to challenging circumstances,” she said. She added that her daily Bible reading taught her “the value of life and the kind of spiritual life that we need to live in peace and be happy.”
The Viodors also said that the Bible has drawn their family closer. “We pray together everyday now and regularly read the Bible as a family, too,” Ponciano explained.
“I am very grateful to God for using the May They Be One Bible Campaign to reach out to people like me. My family and I would not have been able to know the Good News had I not received my own copy of the Bible,” he concluded.

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 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.
