Deaf ministry update
God has been opening some doors for me to start a deaf ministry here in Tacna. I have been visiting the last few weeks with a deaf social club that I found here in the city. I have been able to make contact with many new people, and I am praying that God will help me to reach them with the gospel through these initial contacts.
God also sent a young lady, Betsy, back to the church. She has been taking sign language classes online from a teacher in one of the Independent Baptist churches in Arequipa. So not only do I have new deaf contacts, I also have a ministry partner.
We contacted Betsy’s teacher and asked him to come here and do a 4 day conference for the deaf and those who want to learn to work with deaf people. He is coming from January 30th to February 2nd. I am praying that many deaf people will come to the church for this conference and that I can start a deaf ministry in the next few weeks.
I am very excited about these new opportunities in the ministry. Please pray for our conference and for the blessing of a new deaf ministry here in Tacna.
