Ms. Ning Llarenas gave the orientation about the Comiision on Biblical Apostolate while Ms. Remy Alberto gave a basic orientation on the Bible and shared about some tools for Bible Animation like BFAST, Biblialangin, Biblianilay and Sayawlangin which the bible animators can use in their Bible activities.
