After three decades, it has evolved from an event for the publishing industry and the academe to one of the most-awaited exhibitions for all sorts of readers. The MIBF has become a gathering of sorts for bookworms of all ages and walks of life to celebrate the joys of reading and the knowledge each book brings about. It has also been providing a venue for the exchange of ideas amongst players in the publishing and academic industry.

 


How To Pick A Spouse_FA

“HOW TO PICK A SPOUSE” BOOK LAUNCH: True Love Waits Philippines Partner, Pastor Dan Chun has a new book in the Philippines! How To Pick A Spouse. Please share with others about this new book that will have a great practical impact on how you choose the right person for you.

Anyone can get married. However, the goal should not only be to marry—but to marry the right person.

As a singles pastor for more than 6-1/2 years, author Dan Chun worked exclusively with more than 5,000 singles, and of the hundreds who were married under his teaching, less than ten percent got a divorce. Because it incorporates his principles that give a practical and proven way of picking a spouse, this book is your guide to finding—and keeping—a lifelong partner. You will discover how to test your relationship for key differences using a variety of methods including the Seven Cs: Character, Chemistry, Competency, Cultural Differences, Commitment, Communication and Core Values

“Every person I know who isn’t married really needs this book. If you have been married before, and it didn’t work out, then you clearly need this book! But if this is your first marriage, and you are highly unpracticed at picking a wife or husband, you are in great danger if you don’t follow wise decision making principles like you will find here.”

Neil Clark Warren
Founder, eHarmony.com

“An amazing book on an exceedingly important subject.
I highly recommend it to all single adults.”
Gary Chapman, Ph.D.

Author of The Five Love Languages

The MIBF

 The Manila International Book Fair is the biggest and longest running book fair in the country. First and foremost, the MIBF aims to spread the love for reading among the Filipino public, and judging from the generations of visitors that keep coming back to the book fair each year, it has been successful in doing so.

 The MIBF also provides a venue for the exchange of ideas amongst players in the publishing and academic book industry, gathering not just publishers, distributors, booksellers, authors, illustrators, and the academe, but also the end users: students, professionals, and book lovers.

At MIBF, the visitors were given an access to the largest and most varied collection of printed material, educational aids and multimedia, all under one roof. While the academe and professionals had the advantage of comparing prices, negotiating for bulk purchases, and even arranging for delivery without leaving the halls of the book fair. On the other hand the readers and book lovers had a wide variety of choices to suit their reading tastes.

A LIFE GOD REWARDS – A Seminar for Youth Workers

A LIFE GOD REWARDS – A Seminar for Youth Workers

A LIFE GOD REWARDS – A Seminar for Youth Workers

“Judge not lest ye be judged!”, “Don’t judge me, God is my judge”, “Who are you to condemn me”. Often we hear these types of statements from Christians but what do we really know about God’s word in regards to judgement? The truth is that we respond to people with these statements but then we are sometimes assuming since Christ died on the cross for our sins, then we will not be judged. But even Christians will be judged by Jesus.

On April 26 at the True Love Waits office there will be a seminar to help youth workers better understand the meaning of judgement in the bible. Yes, our faith is founded in the gospel story

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit. 1 Peter 3:18

Yes, you are freely justified by what Christ did on the cross. Yes, your sins are forgiven. But remember, Jesus did say store up rewards for yourself in heaven. So, there is something important about what you do now and your actions will be examined. Jesus determines your salvation but you determine your rewards. Join us on April 26th and learn more about A Life God Rewards with International Speakers, A free book from Randy Alcorn and Lunch.

We were judged in Christ on the cross 2,000 years ago. However, as Christians, we will be judged according to our works (2 Cor. 5:10) with varying degrees of rewards, but remember, the judgment of our works does not affect our salvation.

The bible also teaches us – For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil 2 Cor 5:10

At this Youth Workers Seminars you will learn about the judgement of ALL BELIEVERS. But you may be wondering, if we are all going to heaven then what difference does it make what eternal good that we do if in the end we all receive grace equally? That’s a great question and the seminar will address exactly that question and others.

Somehow, as Christians we have misunderstood grace and works. It seems to us that since we are not saved by our works, we are afraid to encourage people to measure their good works. But the bible tells us in many places – Labor, Run, Strain, Work, and Do in regards to good works. Yes it is for the Glory of God but is also for our reward. And this is a Life God Rewards.
