Northpark Baptist Church, Trussville, in Birmingham Baptist Association sent a team of 12 adults and 17 children to Mobile Baptist Association’s International Ministries Center (IMC) June 10–14.
This family missions trip was a study in flexibility with many unexpected factors — like bad weather — attempting to derail the week, team member Amy Bond reported.
Despite those factors the team passed out fliers for the Ministry Center’s Language School, shared the gospel with seafarers and children at the backyard Bible club and even cleaned toilets.
The IMC partners with volunteers like the Northpark Baptist team to proclaim the gospel to seafarers, refugees, local residents, students, non-English speaking patients in local hospitals and inmates in jail and to provide follow-up ministries to more than 133 nationalities in many languages.
By the end of the trip several men from different nations accepted Christ.
“Everyone’s willingness to do whatever the Lord had planned made the trip a great success,” Bond noted.
Plans are already being made for a return trip to the area next summer.
