Reaching the Deaf Nation

The DeafNation Expo in Portland, Oregon on October 19th was a wonderful success.

We thank God for each person who was a part of this ministry outreach through their prayers, financial support, and as a volunteer.  Eugene and Linda Gehm, John and Marva Gehm, and John Taft did a great job setting up the booth and making sure everything was ready. There were a total of 12 volunteers.  They talked with hundreds of people and passed out over 300 Gospel Bags.

It is a joy to see how God has used this ministry, since 1989, in sharing the Good News with Deaf men, women, children and their families.  The time has gone by fast.  Imagine, next year we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Deaf Ministries Worldwide (DMW).  As I think about the 25th Anniversary of DMW I wanted to share with you something you may not be aware of.

• There are 250 million Deaf people around the world.

•  If all the Deaf came together in one place they would form the fourth largest nation in the world.

•  Only 2% of the Deaf profess Jesus as Lord.

•  Wycliffe Bible Translators has discovered over 400 different sign languages worldwide so far.

To God be the glory for the great things He has done and He will do in the future.  Surely the best years of Deaf ministry are ahead and we have much to look forward to as we continue sending HIS Light and Truth to Deaf people everywhere!


As always we appreciate your prayers and financial support.  This year finances have dropped 25%.  Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us in reaching Deaf men, women, children and their families with the Good News of God’s love.  It’s easy to make a secure financial donation online by clicking the DONATE NOW button below.
