Quarter 2, 2022: Opportunity to Reach the Displaced Deaf

When people are displaced from their homes—whether due to persecution, economic pressure or war—they face immense losses and hardships. And those who are Deaf often face even greater challenges than those who can hear. In war-torn areas they especially suffer, both educationally and economically. And, as they relocate, they struggle to fit in with their host cultures and understand local languages. They often feel isolated, if not marginalized. Often, the displaced Deaf attach to new identities and communities; in some instances, they learn a new sign language.

As these Deaf individuals search for a place to belong, Christians have an incredible open door to help them find their home in Christ. As they migrate and seek connection, believers in Christ have a prime opportunity to invite them into a Deaf church community and reach them with the gospel!

Please pray with us for the displaced Deaf around the world! May God raise up believers to minister to them in their isolation and trauma and to bring healing to them in Christ’s name.
