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

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?”
