Guest Speakers Urge Deaf to Action

We had guest speaker Eugene Gehm come down for a couple of Sundays to speak to the deaf congregation, encouraging the deaf to be witnesses for Jesus. Eugene and his wife Linda(also deaf) stay in contact with the deaf in Ensenada and are true encouragers!

 Kelly Lynch, our guest speaker at the women's deaf retreat taught something similar; reflect Jesus and you affect people- God seems to be saying it's their turn, now, to rise up - And they do!

Rita blows me away with her understanding of God's character.  You might remember the last news was them being persecuted by other deaf.  Rita said that through it all she trusted Jesus to defend her and her husband, and He did! Officials fined the accusers for bringing up the unsubstantiated accusations! 
The deaf retreat went GREAT and we had a few wii sport injuries, but mostly just a whole bunch of fun and spiritual growth.

Rosalba garcia has parents who are deaf, so she signs fluidly and just got her professional certification in mexican sign.  She is an advocate for the deaf working with the municipal government and a believer - and very young - pray for this bundle of energy and her future! 

Margarita - the deaf lady that suffered a stroke- is recovering and still suffers from side paralysis. She gets around with help, but holds tight to Jesus.
