We are so encouraged by the many ways people from out sending church joined Signs of Love this year! From coming here to serve side by side with us, to using their time and talents right there in Austin, we loved seeing the Body of Christ through the Austin Stone reaching the Deaf!
Not to mention a new full-time team member, Kathryn!
Members of this church have been some of our longest prayer and financial supporters from the very beginning (you know who you are;))!
Thank you to each one of you!
Gabi & Michelle Palomares were our first visitors from the Austin Stone earlier this year! They brought great perspective and ideas that blessed us greatly! Check out the video Gabi made here!
Lyndsey Sweeney lead the Austin Stone’s first short term team to serve with our village programs and annual camp! Chris Wu, was on that team and is now leading a team that advocates for us back in the States!
Frank Garcia, from the Austin Stone, served us by using his skills in App development to create an incredible unique app to help us bring healing and hope to many deaf!
Erin Fieldman, a member of the Austin Stone, did a beautiful job illustrating culturally appropriate images for a curriculum about Godly relationships!
Another way members of the Stone served us is by telling our story with the hopes that others would be inspired and challenged! Check it out below!
“Over the river and through the palm fields, looking for deaf we go!”
God blessed us with a break in the rain that we have been having the past month with a beautiful day of looking for new deaf!
We hosted a women’s conference for the deaf women in our city!
Our theme verses were:
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows. (Psalm 23:5)
