International Ministries News, Events and Special Needs
HISPANIC CHURCH PLANTER
| It is always exciting to see the practical ways that the LORD works. He hears and answers our prayers. His answers are tangible and are often accomplished through His Church (the Living Body of Christ)!
| A special thank you to the churches who have offered to sponsor a new Hispanic Church. If the LORD continues to lead as He is now, Dr. Ramon Vielza (from Cuba) and his family will join us to lead this new work. We are praying that they will settle in by June 2021. Several churches have already committed to $100 per month for a three-year period. We still need churches to help fund this new church plant for the first three years. Some families have committed to be a part of the new church which will advance the speed at which this church becomes self-determining, self-propagating, and self-supporting.
| Prayer, participation, and giving are essential, but there is also another need. The Vielzas need temporary housing for about six months so that they can get to Mobile and look for appropriate housing while beginning a church. If God leads your church or you to help with this need, please call Dr. Thomas Wright at 251-661-7111 or Gerald at 251-378-1116.
9TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL MINISTRIES BENEFIT GOLF TOURNAMENT
Saturday, June 26, 2021
TimberCreek Golf Club, Daphne
| It is not too early to put together one or more teams to enter this tournament. We also depend on tournament sponsors and/or hole sponsors to help us raise funds for International Ministries’ three areas of emphasis: International Churches, the International Language School, and Ministry to Seafarers.
| We are grateful to Rev. Art Burroughs (251-232-5070) and Rev. James Mercer (251-423-0772) for organizing and leading this important benefit.
| In addition to organizing Golf Teams (4 people teams), we ask Churches, Sunday Schools, and Small Group to please encourage private businesses and social groups that you know, are involved in, and or have contact with to consider becoming sponsors.
| For additional information visit im.mobilebaptists.org or contact Art at 251-232-5070, James at 251-423-0772, or Gerald Burch at 251-378-1116.
Special Need and Building for Lease
| This past 2020 year, we were blessed to have several churches cut and trim the 5 acre yard at the IMC free of charge. Already this year, the grass growing season has begun. At a bare minimum, we need volunteers who can cut and trim every three weeks. If you can help and/or know someone that can help, please contact Gerald Burch, at 251-661-7111 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we cannot get volunteers, we appreciate an estimate for cutting and trimming.
| International Ministries Center/facility for Lease
| The IMC has been for sale for several years. During this last calendar year, we had buyers make legitimate offers only to have them cancel due to failure by the Mobile City District Commissioner to grant the necessary zoning changes. We are interested in leasing it to a church or Non-Profit until we can get approval for a sale. Interested parties should contact Gerald Burch, at 251-661-7111 or at email@example.com.
Camp Whispering Pines is available for all your groups, small and large. Contact us today at 251-866-7868.
