March 2007 Prayer Letter

March 24, 2007 11:13 pm

Dear Friends,
“Truly David, the fact that your family and friends have given the message of salvation to me and the other Deaf gives us the hope that there awaits for us something better beyond this world.” This was sent to me by one of the teachers at the deaf school who was saved last summer. This is why we are doing God’s work!

We know that God is working among us as we see evidence of it in the ministry. In the last letter I mentioned that a man had started coming to church after seeing our new church sign. His name is Benjelimer (Ben). He has come very faithfully since that first Sunday. Because he works out of town and travels by bus to work, he is only able to be with us 2 out of the 4 weekly services. But he is always there.

This month we had a church activity in which we invited the family members of those Deaf. We had 14 visitors that night. Ben brought two of them. Ben asked me then to be at his birthday party the next week so that I could present the Gospel to all of his Deaf friends. When I stood to give the Gospel, many of the Deaf had not yet arrived. But I shared Salvation with the 25 hearing and Deaf who were there. The father of a young deaf girl who attends our church raised his hand for salvation. I prayed with him and he accepted the Lord that night! This is a man our church had specifically been praying would be saved.

The next couple of weeks will be busy. I will be going to another town for a week to help a medical team. I always enjoy these types of ministries. The missionary who invited me on the trip said that last year he led over 200 people to the Lord in the week! He takes them in groups of 15 while they are waiting in line to see the doctors and shares the Gospel with them. I know that sounds like sensational numbers, but there is a line of people waiting to be seen by the doctors for 10 hours a day. I am not sure if I will be in the waiting room witnessing or helping the doctors with translation, but either way, it will be an honor to be a part of this ministry for a week. That will be March 26-30.

The following week I will be gone to meet with other missionaries working with the Deaf here in Mexico. This will be a planning week for camp this summer. It seems so far away, but there is much to get ready before July. Pray for this trip and that we will get everything prepared as we should.

While I am in and out over those two weeks it gives Bro. Bill Green an opportunity to preach to and teach the Deaf in the church. He will be covering 3 services in my absence. Bro. Green has been working with us since their arrival on the field in May of 2006. This is a great time for him to start stretching his language abilities and start into a more public ministry. Pray for Bill during this time that God will give him the clarity of thought to be able to properly teach God’s Word.

I am eager to share with you what God will do during these next few busy weeks. Pray that God will use all of us here to honor Him in our ministry.
