NEW IM LOGOInternational Christmas Celebration was a HUGE Success


Luke 2:15-16
So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger.

I am reminded of this passage when I reflect upon the blessing of seeing nearly 300 people come to the International Christmas Celebration (ICC) and then to see about 20 who responded to the Gospel message by accepting Christ as Lord and Savior. Truly this was a great night and an answer to prayer. To God be the glory for what He did and is doing through International Ministries here in the Mobile Baptist Association.

Thank you so much to all those who worked so hard in preparing for the ICC. Thank you also to the many churches who sent gifts and support this year. The food was so tasteful and most was provided by the Language Churches. The WMU Leadership Team did an excellent job of organizing and serving. The Campus Ministries did an amazing job of decorating. We almost ran out of the wallets as we had 37 seafarers in attendance and we had to purchase more for giving out to seafarers who will be here in port on Christmas Day.
