Profile

I am a Jesus-centered mom and a traveling educator.

What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

The charitable cause of Friends of the Catholic Biblical Federation (FCBF) is what I am passionate about. FCBF is a US nonprofit and voluntary organization that is geared towards education and is religion-related which gives a sense of fulfillment to teaching and learning the Word of God to all kinds of people, whether children, youth, and the elderly. FCBF promotes and develops the Biblical Pastoral ministry and actively participates in the Church's mission of evangelization by sharing the Word of God. FCBF facilitates fruitful sharing and networking of biblical pastoral experiences, reflection methods and materials, and other resources. FCBF promotes and supports the translation, production, and distribution of the bibles to Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe, and other minority countries and remote areas worldwide. In addition, FCBF biblical studies and the production of educational tools for a better understanding of the Bible. FCBF establishes bridges between biblical science, pastoral ministry, and Church communities on all levels. FCBF also promotes interconfessional dialogue based on the Judeo-Christian Scriptures' shared heritage and the dialogue between the religions based on Sacred Scriptures and those scriptures considered sacred by other faiths.
