Eugene and Linda Gehm

The Gehms, both Deaf, first became missionaries in Mexico in 1989. They’ve started three Deaf churches and five Deaf departments in hearing churches.

Mexico is a poor country. Many Deaf have not attended school, especially the Deaf who live in smaller towns. Also, due to isolation and a lack of socialization among others who know Mexican Sign Language (MSL), the Deaf in small towns are limited in MSL. Eugene and Linda have taught the Deaf how to become more fluent in MSL as well as how to read and write Spanish. This has opened the door for the Gehms to share Jesus, and entire families have been impacted with the Gospel.

Prayer requests:

  • God give wisdom to the leaders in Mexico City, Cuernavaca, and Jojutla.
  • Deaf Christians grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus.
  • More Deaf accept Jesus as their Savior.

Eduardo and Gladys Perdomo

The Perdomos, both Deaf, have been ministering in Venezuela since 1987. They have established seven Deaf churches and are in the process of starting eight more.

Eduardo attended the Pan American Deaf Christian Congress in Brazil where he was asked to teach regarding Deaf missions in Latin America. During the service, 11 Deaf people felt called by the Lord to become missionaries in Brazil. Eduardo and Gladys are faithful servants in Venezuela and would greatly appreciate your prayer

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for the Deaf in Rio de Janeiro and Brazil to grow in God’s Word.
  • Find church location in Caracas.
  • More Deaf people accept Jesus as their Savior.
  • Job opportunities for the Deaf. More workers to share the Gospel.
