Message from Gary & Special Offer

by Gary Barrett ~


Join me on a journey back in time…imagine what it was like that VERY FIRST CHRISTMAS…for the SHEPHERDS! I encourage you to turn to Luke 2 in your Bible and read “The Birth of Jesus”. Below are selected verses from Luke chapter 2.


 “That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, but the angel reassured them. ‘Don’t be afraid!’ he said. ‘I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior––yes, the Messiah, the Lord––has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.’

Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others––the armies of heaven––praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.’

They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said about this child. All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished.”


Since 1989, Deaf Ministries Worldwide has been sharing with Deaf men, women, children and their families this good news and the response––they are astonished and believe! I remember when I heard the good news and was astonished and believed, too.  Salvation in Jesus changed my life in 1978! I’m sure He changed your life as well! And, thanks be to God, He is changing the lives of Deaf people and their families…now and for eternity.


I have stories that I could share with you, too numerous to even count, stories of how God has changed thousands of people’s lives through this ministry. This story happened a few months ago  I received a VP call from a co-worker in Deaf ministry. Members of his church shared with him that they were concerned for a loved that was in the hospital. I went and visited this person. She was very sick, the doctors told her that she was dying. She was very afraid.  I visited her day after day, encouraging her, and sharing about God’s love in sending His Son, Jesus.  At first she did not understand. But finally one day her spiritual eyes were opened. She prayed to receive Jesus into her heart and life; instantly her face radiated with joy. She showed the same kind of joy the shepherds experienced, the same kind of joy that you and I experienced when we KNEW the good news about Jesus. A few days later she went home to be with Jesus.


There are millions of Deaf people around the world, and I personally believe they are the least evangelized people group in the world with only 2% knowing Jesus as their Savior. I have great hope in our God who loves the Deaf. God is moving by His Spirit to reach Deaf people with the good news of His love…shown Christmas Day! Rhonda and I are praying and believing that 2018 will be the greatest year for Deaf souls saved since this ministry began over 28 years ago.


We thank God that He has touched you to be a part of this ministry though the years with your prayer and financial support. He is using you to make a difference in people’s lives.
