Hispanic Church Planter
| Thank you for praying for a Spanish language church for our Associational area. We have 11,000 -15,000 Hispanics here in the greater Mobile area and believe that this is the time to move forward. Most of you know that we are in discussions with Alabama State Board of Missions (ALSBOM), and others, about a potential Hispanic Church Planter. I encourage each of you to continue to faithfully and earnestly pray for God’s timing.
| In order to move forward, the urgent need is for a commitment(s) for at least $7,000 annually for an initial three-year commitment. Without reducing gifts to the CP and/or MBA, if a few MBA churches and/or missions’ minded individuals committed to $100 per month for three years, we can have the church planter here and working by late Spring or early Summer. This financial support will help us and our partners to pay salary and benefits for the initial three-year start-up period. In addition to the salary, the provision of temporary housing (6-12 months) would be a major blessing. For a Hispanic church to be planted, brothers/sisters who will commit to serve with the church planter in the initial church planting efforts will be a blessing.
Week of Prayer for Mobile International Ministries March 15 – 21, 2021
| This year’s Week of Praryer for Mobile International Ministries is March 15-21, 2021. For Churches who are interested, we plan to have a brief PowerPoint presentation and a 2-3 minute video about MBA’s International Ministries available for your use. Please lead your church in this vital time of prayer for the Internationals in our community. We have more than 74 different language groups who live in Mobile. Also remember, the International Language School is a major part of our outreach to these who live among us.
| Specifically, we are praying that God’s Holy Spirit will move among the Internationals here in a way that each may encounter Jesus personally as Savior and make Him LORD of their lives. We will pray that Seafarers will take the Gospel to their families here and in their lands of origin. We will also pray that the LORD will provide resources and personnel to allow us to be a part of what He is doing.

Disaster Relief Training
March 4-6, 2021
Airport Boulevard Baptist Church
| Certification options include:
- Temporary Child Care
| New volunteers may choose any option with the requirement of ISBIDR (Involving Southern Baptists in Disaster Relief). Current volunteers may take a refresher course in their current certification, or choose to cross-train in another area in order to be more readily able to serve and deploy.
| After this past year, we are painfully aware of how many people are needed to respond to the devastating effects of a hurricane, and we experienced it twice in one year!
| Register by sending an email to email@example.com, or by calling the MBA office at 661-7111. Give your name, email address, preferred course, and if you are a new or current volunteer. We will get in touch with you about the next step and how to pay for the class(es).
