As a part of the Year of the Bible 2004 programs for the Gulf, a service of prayer and thanksgiving for Bible ministry around the world was held on May 10, 2004 at 07:30pm, at the Catholic Church of the Holy Family, Kuwait. Representatives of different churches took part in the service. His Grace Archbishop Guiseppe De Andrea, Apostolic Nuncio to Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and Yemen was present.

The Opening prayer was offered by Mr. Hrayr Jebejian, the Executive Secretary of the Bible Society in the Gulf. The work of the United Bible Societies Global fellowship was presented by Mr. Peter Wigglesworth, followed by prayer for the UBS offered by Rev.
