Philippines (MNN) — Back to the Bible has 50 years under its belt in the Philippines. The ministry that began in a missionary couple's living room has moved locations several times. A fire in 1976 destroyed the building but the ministry kept going and kept growing.
Woodrow Kroll, president of Back to the Bible International, spoke to the crowd of friends who packed a banquet hall in Manila to celebrate the anniversary of the Philippines office.
The following day Kroll and Back to the Bible's Filipino director, Clem Guillermo, spoke to 3,500 people at a half-day Bringing Families Back to the Bible seminar in Pasay City. This is just a slice of the work that this broadcast is doing.
The Philippine ministry airs Dr. Kroll's international version of Back to the Bible, as well as two of its own Tagalog programs, and a live, interactive, nightly program.
The first of the Tagalog programs is Light in the Path of Life a 30-minute program. It incorporates interviews, in-depth Bible studies, prayer time and a question and answer time. Happy Home is their second program that tackles family issues such as relationships.
Finally, Heart Line, an hour and a half radio counseling program, is produced with the help of Far East Broadcasting Company. This evening program deals with depression and those who are confused or seeking answers. They receive hundreds of text messages and calls each night.
Pray that their ministry would continue to grow and that God would speak to the listeners.
