The Deaf Harvest is Already Ripe!

FieldsRipeReadyHarvest

"You know the saying, 'Four months between planting and harvest.' But I (Jesus) say, wake up and look around. The fields are already ripe for harvest" (John 4:35).

DID YOU KNOW:

There are MILLIONS OF DEAF PEOPLE around the world, and Wycliffe Bible Translators has, so far, discovered over 400 DIFFERENT SIGNED LANGUAGES!

The Deaf are one of the most OVERLOOKED AND LEAST EVANGELIZED PEOPLE GROUPS in the world with 98% of the Deaf still waiting to "HEAR" John 3:16, "For God so loved the Deaf world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Almost 35 years ago, God gave me a vision. The vision was of a Lighthouse...as the light shined out of the Lighthouse, people were drawn to Jesus and received the free gift of salvation...then, those Jesus followers went out into the dark and lost world shining the light as His Ambassadors, His disciples. It is humbling to see how God has used this ministry, and continues to use this ministry, to fulfill that vision.

We need your help. I believe this is an historic time for reaching the Deaf Community with the Good News of Jesus. Prayerfully consider partnering with us through your prayers and financial support. THANK YOU!

by Rhonda Barrett ~   “Living Water” was my theme a few months ago at the 25th Annual Northwest Deaf Christian Women’s Retreat October 28-30. The verse I chose was Psalm 42:1, “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, my God.”   My focus was the importance of […]

Life is Short Handle With Love

* Thirteen years ago, January 2004, was the last time I saw my youngest sister, Robin. Three days later, at the age of 42, she died of a heart attack. Let me back up…two weeks before… I flew to Las Vegas and visited my two sisters who lived there.  We had a wonderful time.  Robin […]

Everyday, I miss our family more than words can express.  Gone are the times when we all lived in Oklahoma a few miles from each other allowing us to see each other almost every week.  Although our oldest son, Rex, and […]
