Deaf World Missions

Taking God’s Word to the Deaf World In Our Generation

Did You Know?

Did you know?

There are over 400 million deaf people in the world?

There are over 24 million deaf in the US?

That only 2% profess to be saved?

That only 7% have ever “heard” (seen) the name JESUS?

The deaf do not have a Bible in their language?

Deaf people without Christ are lost and will spend eternity in the Lake of Fire if they are not reached?

You can be a part of reaching this very under-reached group of people?

  1. I am curious as to what your source is for the 400 million deaf in the world. Are these Deaf (culturally) or Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, and late-deafened combined? Can you please tell me your source.
    Thanks,
    Dr. Mark Sauter

  2. Here is a link to the sources that I used to determine that number:

    Also from Into the Silence by Joe Kotvas at Efata Ministries (http://www.efata.org) in Peru. This was taken from page 26.

    There has been much said and studied about the 10/40 Window
    as it relates to missions. This is a valid mission emphasis and
    should not be ignored. Thankfully, many missionaries, churches
    and mission agencies are beginning to focus and develop strategies
    to reach this under-evangelized region between 10 and 40
    degrees above the equator of people groups and nations. It is
    claimed that over 1.3 billion people live in this region that have
    little or no hope of hearing the Gospel.
    There is also another “window” of missions that is just as needy
    and just as difficult to reach. It is a window that extends to the
    farthest southern degree of the globe to its most northern
    cousin. This window is not only centered in Asia but circles the
    Globe. It is The Silent Window.
    This window consists of approximately 400 million deaf and
    hard-of-hearing persons who are in the world today, of which
    approximately 68 million are profoundly deaf people with little
    or no hearing ability at all. Depending on the country, the Deaf
    and hard of hearing population could be as little as 6% to as
    much as 10% of a country’s population. This figure amounts to
    the third largest people group in the world.
