The Bible Society hosted an exceptional dinner for the diplomatic corps in Lebanon honored by the presence of His Excellency the Dean and Apostolic Nuncio Msgr. Gabriele Caccia on the 16th of March 2015, in Le Maillon restaurant - Ashrafieh. Ambassadors from 26 countries gathered together over an exquisite dinner to learn who the Bible Society is, its history, and its current work in each of their countries. The Bible Society chairman, Mr. Amine Khoury, opened the dinner with a word of welcome and a small introduction of the Bible Society followed by a word of prayer from His Excellency Msgr. Gabriele Caccia.
The Bible Society’s General Secretary and CEO, Dr. Mike Bassous, later took the invitees on a journey that started from the date of the formation of the Bible Society to its current status and work around the world today. He emphasized that the Bible Society movement is one of the oldest charities in the world, most spread worldwide with one unique important task, yet indigenous, interdependent, and contextual. The evening ended with a word of thanks to the diplomatic corps from Msgr. Caccia.
