Sunday morning God blessed my ministry with the deaf in a special way. I have been leading deaf Bible studies for over 6 months now. The deaf here in Tacna lack Bible knowledge and understanding of spiritual concepts. I have prayerfully taught through Bible stories while presenting who God is and the spiritual basics like sin and its penalties, and Jesus’ gift of redemption and forgiveness of sin through His death on the cross.
This Sunday 6 of the most faithful deaf students came for our class time. God used the review of the lesson of Adam and Eve and the first sin to bring the deaf class to understand their need to accept the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior and the only one who takes our place our penalty and guilt that we deserve and gives us His innocence.
Praise the Lord God led in each step of the lesson and each illustration God put in my heart, and three people accepted the Lord as their Savior. I am very excited by this first fruit of the deaf ministry. Please continue to pray as I lead the deaf ministry and as Pastor Henry and the other leaders and I work to build a strong deaf ministry to really help the deaf community in Tacna.
