Deaf World Missions

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

Why Wait???

Instead of us being reactive, why not be proactive. Instead of waiting for a change, why not be the person that allows God to work through them to bring about that change.

William Carey, the father of modern missions, said, “Expect great things from God, attempt great things for God.”

Let’s attempt more than is humanly possible, that way God gets the credit.

Attempt what you say????

How about a gospel witness to the world’s Deaf population, in our generation.

Some Pics Of Our Mission Trip To Jamaica

Jamaica Missions Trip
More Jamaica Mission Pics

It is hard to believe it has been a year since this trip. It seems like we were just there last week. If you are interested in a short term missions trip, give me a yell, and I can put you in touch with the Locklear Family there in Martha Brae, Jamaica.

We All Need Direction and a Goal Or…

Thought some of you might like to see this.

Without a direction and a goal, we tend to make it too easy for the enemy.

Why The Deaf World?

I have had well meaning Christians ask me questions like, “Why do you want to waste your time with the deaf?”

Here is my response to that question and others like it:

1. They need to be saved.

2. They need to have a changed life.

3. They need to grow and mature to become good Christians.

4. They need to learn to share the Gospel with others.

5. They need to have strong families and teach their children to follow God.

6. They need to become godly men and women, teachers, preachers, missionaries.

7. They need hear the Lord say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

Deaf people can become productive Christians, however they must be taught. They need someone who has a heart dedicated to teaching them.

Deaf Bible Institute

I talked with Bro. Bill Towner a couple of days ago. He and his wife, Eleanor, are the directors of the Silent Word Ministries Home Bible Institue. He was telling me how the Lord is blessing there, they have over 700 enrolled and are sending materials to 24 different countries.

If you are deaf or you know someone deaf that would be interested in learning more about God’s Word, let me encourage you to visit them. Click here to go to their site. Also, while you are there check out all the wonderful things Silent Word Ministries has to offer for the Deaf and Deaf Workers.

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 β€œapt 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.

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?
