This was the group of Deaf we had a couple of weeks ago at our church, Efata Baptist Mission! God is so good to us! He keeps bringing Deaf to church and across our path!
This is Pedro. He came to church the very first Sunday the kids and I got to go to Callao with Matt and Frank. He had told us that Sunday, that he was going away to work, and wouldn’t be back. Yesterday (Sunday) morning, the Lord brought Pedro to my mind and I prayed for him especially, wondering where he was and how he was doing. We had only been at church just a few minutes yesterday morning….when Pedro walked in the door! I could scarcely believe my eyes! I wish you could have seen the smile on his face as I shared with him that I had just prayed for him that morning! He told us he had resigned his work in Ecuador, and was back to stay!
Raul Larico was already saved when he started coming to our church. He had come to our church before, but had stopped coming. Soon after coming back to church, Raul expressed a desire to be baptized. On November 11, 2012, Raul followed the Lord in Believer’s Baptism! What a joy and blessing it was to see him take that step of obedience!
It is a blessing to see our people learning the Bible and growing in the Lord! We feel so privileged to have a part in their lives! Isn’t it exciting to serve the Lord – to be co-laborers together with Him? Please continue to pray for Raul and his family. Please continue to pray for the other Deaf who come to our church, and the many more that are waiting to be reached with the Gospel of Christ!
