Deaf World Missions

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

Can’t They Just Read Lips?

Statistics show that even the best lip readers only get about 25% of the actual conversation. Think about this. If you were presenting the Gospel to a deaf person, and you were depending on them to read your lips, which 75% of the Salvation Message would you choose to leave out?

The Silent Window

Many people that are involved in world missions are familiar with the 10/40 window. This is the area that is between the 10 degrees latitude and 40 degress longitude lines on the globe. Is is said to consist of over 1.3 billion people who have very little or no hope of ever hearing the Gospel. Thank the Lord there are many missionaries and churches that are focusing on this area, and putting forth every effort to take the Gospel to these people. But, there is another “window” that needs to be reached with the same effort and compassion. This “window” is also just as difficult to reach. This is the “Silent Window.” It reaches from the North Pole to the South Pole, and encircles the entire globe. This window consists of over 400 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the world, and if they were to all come together they would be the third largest nation in the world. The Deaf live in a silent world where they blend into the background and are often ignored or cast aside as second class citizens. They need to “hear” the Gospel too. Would you please pray about your part in reaching the “Silent Window?”

The Deaf Can Be Leaders

And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. – 2 Timothy 2:2

This mandate applies to the Deaf as well. You will have Deaf that will be “apt to teach.” Help them learn, develop and grow so they can be used of God. Spend time with them and train them. We must not neglect this important aspect of the ministy. If we are going to train leaders, we must give them our time. This is the scriptural way. This is life on life discipleship. If you will give the Deaf your time and effort, they will be some of your greatest resources for reaching other Deaf for Christ.
