And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
My ministry goals include:
Teaching sign language to the "deaf and" for the purpose of being able to explain the gospel to them.
Chronological Bible teaching
Teaching sign language to future deaf workers and families of those who are deaf
The vision for this ministry is for those who are trained to go out into the surrounding villages, counties, and countries to reach, teach, train, and deploy others for the furtherance of the gospel!
2 Timothy 2:2 "And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men,
who shall be able to teach others also."
One of the largest unreached people groups in the world is the "deaf and" - people who are deaf and have been deprived of language, people who are deaf and have special needs, people who are deaf and have been abandoned, abused, or neglected.
Jesus did not shy away from the outcasts of society. Actually, He often went out of His way to show love and compassion to those considered the least of the least and lowest of the low. God has called me to reach the outcasts and the forgotten in Liberia, West Africa.
Discipleship is key to the growth and sustainability of any ministry. For this reason, I will strive to:
Deliberately disciple willing learners
Train Liberian Christians to reach, teach, and train the "deaf and"
Assist local churches in establishing and growing deaf ministries
Help facilitate deaf ministry outreach in West Africa
Do it again!
Whether God keeps me in Liberia or sends me elsewhere, I am prepared to spend the rest of my life going, teaching, training, and deploying.
To Live or Die
To live is Christ—I long to spend
My might and time to worship Him.
I’ll give my all for Him who died
To bring a rebel to His side.
To die is Christ—eternal gain,
To wake, and never sleep again.
I will not fear the feeble grave,
The pathway to my Savior’s face.
To live or die—it’s all the same;
For Christ consumes me, either way.
If I should live, I’ll live for Him,
And if I die, I’ll live again.
Lord, help me use my fleeting breath
To honor You, through life or death.
And when my heart drums its last beat,
I’ll lay my labors at Your feet.
