Through the International Mission Board we are part of 46,000 Southern Baptist churches focused together in one sacred effort to fulfill the great commission among all peoples.
We sent our first mission team to Cuba in 2014 and in May of 2015 we will be sending another group.
A movement of the Holy Spirit has been sweeping Cuba for the last 20 years. But the church in Cuba recently has been facing many distractions and trials. Pray for continued and renewed focus on evangelism, discipleship and the planting of reproducing churches. The rapid rate of church growth in Cuba has created a great need for more church leaders. Pray for the multiplication of leaders in the ever-expanding network of new churches. Pray for the effective training of church leaders.
Southern Baptists send missionaries from their churches, through IMB, to go into the world making disciples in the name of Jesus. In that partnership, Southern Baptists provide the funding to send and support these missionaries and their ministries. The more resources they provide, the more missionaries can be sent.
In 2014 Immanuel Baptist Church raised $34,134.14 for the Lottie Moon Offering.
