2022 Walk for Bibles and International Ministries
Saturday, October 15, 2022
Mobile Baptists, you continue to bless as you give selflessly to help reach Internationals who frequent the Port of Mobile or live here. The annual Walk for Bibles and International Ministries was held October 16. At the central location, Medal of Honor Park, 143 people participated. Additionally, some churches gathered their own groups and walked for Bibles and International Ministries. To date, more than $12,500 has been received.
These funds are vital to the work or reaching internationals here in Mobile County. Year to date, we have visited 705 ships, given 801 English NT Bible packs, and given 857 International Language Bibles. This would not be possible without your generosity. Thank YOU! God gets the glory!
Because of your support, we have also provided free shopping transportation for at least 1,134 Seafarers. We have assisted in coordinating COVID-19 Vaccinations for more than 1,300 Seafarers. We could not do this without you! I am amazed at how the LORD has used you to bless internationals here in Mobile. –Gerald Burch, Director of International Ministries and Church Planting
Looking back over 2020, we have seen God’s faithfulness in the ministry at the port. More than 1,600 ships came to Mobile in 2020. Despite the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, International Ministries visited 524 ships, gave 521 English New Testament and tract packets, and 627 International language Bibles (Tagalog – Filipino, Russian, Ukrainian, Chinese, and others such as Hindi, Turkish, Polish, Burmese) to Seafarers.
Language Bibles cost an average $10 – $15, not to mention the cost of gasoline necessary to deliver these Bibles.
Join us in praying
- for more Port Chaplains and for someone to coordinate the activities of the Port Chaplains
- for volunteers to help with childcare for the International Language School
- for your involvement in helping begin a Spanish speaking church
