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!
