Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) President Ronald Mascariñas has written a message to Word Riders Philippines, congratulating them on their 5th founding anniversary, June 26.
A part of the Philippine Bible Society and supported by Bounty, Word Riders Philippines members ride their ‘big bikes’ across the country and distribute copies of the Bible to young people.
Below is the full version of the company president’s message:
I wish to extend my warmest felicitations to our friends and partners at the Word Riders Philippines on the occasion of your 5th founding anniversary!
I am truly gratified that Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. has become a part of your work in spreading the Word of God while pursuing your shared passion in big-bike riding.
We are a business organization, but we share with you an abiding belief in promoting good Filipino citizenship through values education in schools, and even in the workplaces. And there could be no better source of time-tested moral and ethical precepts to guide our young than the Bible itself.
I am a personal witness to your zeal in building a stronger moral foundation for our country’s future. When I was with you in Antique last November last year, I saw you distribute bibles, listen to teenagers and talk with them about Christian principles and good citizenship, after having traveled hundreds of kilometers through sun and rain.
Thank you for your good example.
Through you and your “cool” bikes, you have shown to our young people now that a virtuous life is not boring but is, in fact, deeply exciting. It is the key to a new world of infinite wonders and possibilities.
I have yet to figure out if I can get on a bike and join one of your rides, but I am already with you in spirit. I assure you of Chooks-to-Go’s continuing support of your good works.
I wish you all safe rides and “cooler runnings” for our youth and for our country.
God bless you all.
