When the Bible Becomes a Family Affair

When the Bible Becomes a Family Affair

Garcia Family
When it comes to relationships, the Garcia family of Caloocan City  could be described as a fragmented unit.  49-year old Carolina Garcia had problems with pride and temper and would have frequent arguments with her husband Jose  and her children.  Jose, for his part,  was so engrossed with his job as a  factory worker that he hardly spent quality time at home.  Even Sundays became work days for Jose.  Praying together was out of the family’s activity list.  But a wake up call came when Jose suffered a  stroke – an experience that stressed the Garcias both emotionally and financially.  In the midst of the turmoil, Carolina became a recipient of a May They Be One (MTBO) Bible during Bible distribution at the Soldiers of Christ ministry.  Reading the MTBO Bible convicted Carolina of her short temper and pride, especially in relating with her family.  Carolina shared the Bible to her husband, and he also began reading the Word .  The messages Jose got from his Bible  reading made him realize that his stroke was caused largely by worries and an unforgiving spirit.  The Bible reading  built up Jose ‘s faith to the point that he got completely healed from the stroke. Capping the family experiences, the Garcia daughter, 22-year old Jennifer ,  said “We are happy that God has brought  peace, unity and understanding to our family.  She said that reading the MTBO Bible has brought hope, healing and restoration to the Garcia family.

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.
