As the Bahamas National Baptist Missionary and Educational Convention held its 82nd annual session which wrapped up just days ago, Aliv, the Bahamas' newest telecommunications company, made its presence felt, offering an additional 20 per cent discount to all Baptists attending the sessions.  The discount was offered on top of any existing promotional packages presented by Aliv, which made it an excellent time for members to consider signing up.

Senior Aliv Partner Carl Momplaisir made a presentation on behalf of the company to the scores of Baptist members who attended the sessions, which were held under the theme: "The Militant Church - No Retreat, No Surrender".  Mr. Momplaisir fully supported the theme, stating that even in the corporate world, the theme is timely and a good reminder to always operate from this mindset that does not settle for less.

As a Christian himself, he was moved by the message from guest speaker Rev. Huel Williamson, Pastor of Zion Baptist Church in Betsey Bay, Mayaguana.

"One sentence stuck in my mind - we have to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves," said Mr. Momplaisir.  

He said that he would take this Christian charge with him in his daily walk, remembering that there are many who cannot stand up for themselves and who deserve the support.  

"It was a sermon filled with love and kindness, but also a call to action, and I promise to take this word with me," he said.

President of the Bahamas National Baptist Missionary and Education Convention, Rev. Dr. William L. Thomspon, called for Baptists to rededicate and commit themselves to the extension of the kingdom of God, as the 82nd session also was entitled: "Rebuilding, Rebranding, Renewing".  

Mr. Momplaisir, noting that a part of the Christian mission to extend the kingdom of God comes through effective communication, said that Aliv is proud to continue to partner with churches, offering them stable, consistent connection, reliable data, and affordable plans.  Aliv's service, in part, allows them to stay connected to family, friends, and all they wish to share the Good Word with effectively.  By offering great discounts like the one provided during the convention, it allows more persons to consider utilising the network.

He added that three more islands will be added to the network, with an announcement to be made public very shortly, while the goal is for Aliv's network to cover the country by the end of the year.  Considering its launch in November 2016, Mr. Momplaisir considers the growth of the company quite commendable, and personally considers it God's grace that has allowed the company such success, including the fact that it currently has just over 70,000 subscribers to date.  

 With Holy Cross Anglican Church parish as its base, Mr. Momplaisir believes it is an ever-present reminder for all Aliv staff to remain humble and reverent, while working hard and pursuing good morals and principles in themselves.  

He also thanked President of the Bahamas Christian Council, Bishop Dr. Delton Fernander, for the opportunity to address the convention, and for allowing the Aliv team to share and worship with them.
