Gaining a Heart of Wisdom

16th Bible Conference

The 16th APMF Bible Conference will be held on March 29-31, 2018 in Gestdan Centrum, Baguio City, Philippines.

The conference main teacher will be Marvin Kramer .

  • Theme and Speaker

    Our conference theme verse is Psalm 90:12 "Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." In these troubling times, a heart of wisdom is essential in living out a Torah lifestyle. The Bible must be the authority on what is right or wrong in a world where black is now white and where it is now more difficult than ever to live ones life according to Torah.

    Our speaker is Marvin Kramer, an American who made aliyah and has been living in Israel since 1985. He is currently a lawyer living and working in Haifa. His wife and children are all Israeli born and their youngest son is still serving in the IDF. In addition to practicing law, he is the General Manager of a registered pro-life organization in Israel, A Future and A Hope ( He and his wife, Orit, have been involved in the pro-life arena for over 25 years. They attend Bethesda Assembly in Haifa, where he also serves as an Elder.

    In this conference, Marvin will give a series of talks on persons in the Bible and how they are examples for us today. He will also speak on "The Big Picture" regarding the Middle East.
