International Ministries News and Events
| Your prayer support and financial gifts are vital to the ministry of the MBA International Churches, language church planting, ministry to internationals living in Mobile County, and out-reach to seafarers. |
| 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.|
| Cooperative missions is an important Southern Baptist distinctive that is often not understood in our pews. Please invite one of the MBA staff to set up a display in your church, or to speak anytime during the year.|
| The Impact Mobile offering provides an opportunity for churches that may not have financially supported cooperative missions in their Jerusalem as much as they would have liked. It also assists those churches who use regular special offerings as their primary means to raise missions support. We are grateful for the churches that provide a portion of their missions tithe through the budget, and understand those churches may choose not to promote this offering. This is an “above the tithe” missions offering to assist the ministries and emphases of the MBA to make an eternal difference in Mobile County. Your sacrificial missions tithes allow us to provide MBA sponsored trainings and consultations to dozens of pastors, staff and members about every aspect of growing, maintaining and managing a church. Please consider participating in the “Impact Mobile Associational Missions Offering.”|
Camp Whispering Pines is available for all your groups, small and large. Contact us today at 251-866-7868.
This Camp Relief Fund is essential for the camp to survive. CWP will run out of money next month. If your church has not yet participated in the Covid related Relief Fund, please do so now.
THANK YOU to all who have given thus far.
