Central America (MNN) — Deaf team members will be traveling
with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board this year to help figure
out how to make ministry efficient.
They will be researching and evaluating the need for Deaf
evangelism and leadership training in both Nicaragua and Panama. IMB missionaries plan on meeting with local
Baptist church leaders who may sense God's leading to help in planting a
Baptist Deaf Church.
Growth is being seen from the Dominican Republic and the ongoing work
in El Salvador and Guatemala. The
missionary work in the Dominican Republic involves a partner team from the States to help with
some completion work on the church building in Moca (mo-ka), as well as deaf leaders
from the Baptist Deaf church in Santiago to do evangelism and discipleship in
Ask God to lead in the plans and meetings with Deaf secular
leaders for the growth in both Nicaragua and Panama. Lift up those unsaved
hearing impaired people, and pray that the leaders will develop a strategic
response for their need.
