Prayer Letter November 2009

Dear Praying Friends,
Nigeria? Since when did Nigeria become a part of Latin America?

While our ministry is focused on the Deaf of Latin America, we are also helping missionaries and national workers around the world as a broader ministry through our mission board, BIO. As a result of this ministry I will take a trip to Nigeria in December to help national pastor Olawale Orekan in a deaf church in Abeokuta, Nigeria. Pastor Olawale is a hearing pastor who was burdened for the Deaf in Abeokuta and became their pastor this year. I will spend 2 weeks with him helping him to better understand sign language and the Deaf. Prayerfully, my ministry in the church will allow Pastor Olawale to be more effective in his ministry and encourage and strengthen the church in Nigeria as they seek to reach other Deaf around them.

While preparing for that trip we are also making plans for the move to Argentina. We do not have a travel date set yet, but we are planning to make the move at the end of January. To do so we need to raise money for our plane tickets and set-up costs in Argentina. The estimated needed amount is $7000. If you would like to be part of the team that helps us make the move to Argentina you can send a donation to our church or mission board. Simply mark your donation as being for the move to Argentina. This is an opportunity for those who do not support us monthly to join in a financial way.

We have been in some great services recently that have been used to deepen our desire to see others accept the Lord. While we are doing the ministry we are called to, sometimes it becomes more “work” than “ministry” and we lose focus on our purpose. We are thankful that the Lord has helped us get recharged for the ministry He has called us to. Please pray that we will continue to keep our focus on the task.

The main theme of my messages this year has been about praying for your missionaries as if they were normal people going through the same struggles that you face. I want to encourage you once again to pray for us, and the other missionaries you support, in the same way that you want someone to pray for you. When you are struggling in an area, be conscientious that your missionary friends may be going through the same problems you are experiencing.

I have been reminded over the last few months that you and I are doing a work for God as a team. I want to thank you for the part you play in our team. Pray that we will perform the role on the team that God has called us to do.
