You first met the deaf sibling duo of Ana and Yesmine back in a post in February. They have since then found and invited 2 more deaf to join our programs in their village (about an hour and a half away from where we are located) as well as visiting them on a regular basis.
When we started praying about starting a new program in a city just a 10 minute bus ride from where Ana and Yesmine live, it seemed logical for them to join us! They regularly visit this city to get supplies for the small shop their family owns. I couldn’t think of a better example of “In your going make disciples” (Matt. 28:19)!
They walked the dusty streets of Tocoa knocking door to door for 5 hours one day in March when we found 11 more deaf people. They are now being discipled via Skype by Nancy, one of our Deaf leaders here in the city.
And…in March they helped teach our first program in Tocoa with the deaf students they helped find just weeks earlier.
They are learning and growing and eager to teach and grow others! We are really excited what may be in store for these special 2 deaf as they continue to grow in understanding of God’s love for them and their neighbors!
Please pray that the Truth of God would take root deep in their hearts. That they would mature in their love for God and for the deaf in their country. That they would learn the bible, leadership skills, and teaching skills and that they would go and share the Good News with every person God puts in their path!
I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. (1 Corinthians 3:6-7)
