Update on Deaf ministry

We have been working hard learning Chilean sign language. Learning a new language is hard. You have to start out talking like a child.

We had a super Wednesday night service. Our two deaf men gave their salvation testimony. It was amazing. The pastor that is helping us told us that not once in 18 years of ministry has he ever heard such a clear salvation testimony. We are encouraged. The younger of the two men, who is 24, really wants to reach other deaf. We believe that he might become the first deaf pastor here in Chile.

please pray for Marcos, Miguel, Ruperto and Amada

God bless,
Rhonda

What a blessing to read this! I don't know even American sign language, but I have a soft place in my heart for the deaf, and love to read and hear stories of how the Lord works in their lives and brings them to Himself. I know there's a very real, very deep need for people to work with the deaf all over the world. Please keep us updated on how your ministry goes!
