Alabama Mission Team Blesses Boston Planters

Boston church planters have been blessed in recent years by dozens of short-term mission teams. But few teams have traveled like First Baptist Church of Prattville, Al: on a charter bus.

With more than 70 folks in tow – mostly the teenage members of the Senior High Choir – they left Alabama June 5, 2014 headed for Philadelphia, PA; Long Island, NY; and finally Boston.

That is where we caught up with them on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at the Boston Church Planting church planter family picnic in Winthrop, MA.  Their mission was to bring music and song, drama, puppets, and the Good News to everyone they encountered.

Special thanks go out to Pastor Mitch Loftin and the team, that also brought along an evangelistic bracelet craft that they used in the park to share the gospel with folks. Alabama_Team2

From Winthrop, MA on Saturday, the tour moved on to an outdoor Sunday service with Celebration Church in Malden, MA – complete with a huge cookout that fed not only their team but the neighborhood passers-by.

Sunday afternoon brought a new adventure as the team headed out to Charlestown, MA to run a VBS at the First Brazilian Baptist Church there.

We are so grateful for everyone who traveled to Boston to help us advance the gospel here. You have our prayers. Keep it up!
