After much prayer, and much more prayer, we took the step of faith and listed our home with a real estate agent. Our home served as the ministry offices and retreat center for DMW. The “Shalom Lighthouse Cove” sold right away and closed in less than a month. The Lord worked out every detail smooth and quick! The moving company arrived Monday, March 26, and we left Oklahoma the next day. We arrived to Tampa on Friday, March 30 and are living with our son and his family while we look for a new home and ministry offices. Rhonda and I sense a great excitement in what God is doing in our lives, in the ministry, and in the Deaf Harvest Field!
It was not an easy decision to move, in fact, it was a BIG MOMENT OF FAITH decision to relocate to Florida after being in Oklahoma since 1989. I believe moving to Florida will have an even greater impact on the Deaf Harvest Field. Florida is the #3 populated state in the United States for Deaf people. There is a huge mission field right there.
One of the first messages I shared in the DMW newsletter 23 years ago was in regards to the significance of light to Deaf people. Without light Deaf people cannot communicate. Without light Deaf people can not see where to go. As we made this BIG MOMENT OF FAITH decision I thought about the DMW mission since the beginning, “Sending HIS Light and Truth to Deaf people everywhere.” And by God’s will and grace that is what we continue to do!
- Inspirational “Moments of Faith” Lighthouse Sculpture is fashioned of resin with elegant bronze tone finish and is displayed on smooth black wooden base with felt lining. Accent plaque is inscribed with the Scripture from John 8:12. Base is 7″ x 5.5″; 7″ tall.
Now is a great time to join with us in the NEW BEGINNING God has started. We are praying and believing God to raise up Ministry Partners to join with us NOW and make a generous donation of $500 or more. As a token of our appreciation we will send you this “Moments of Faith” Lighthouse Sculpture.
You can either send a one-time $500 gift OR
donate $50 now and pledge $50 a month for the next nine months (total of $500).
On the Lighthouse Sculpture is inscribed one of my favorite scriptures, John 8:12, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness because you will have the light that leads to life.” No person has to walk in darkness when they know the Light of the World–JESUS–this is the life changing message we share! Thank you for your help!
