Hi there, Everyone!
Greetings from East Boulder Baptist Church near Denver, Colorado! Most of you know me, but in case you don’t, I’m Barb Coffan. This June, I’ll be leading a Deaf mission trip to Uruguay, and our team is in need of three more Deaf missionaries. Just yesterday, we got the “go ahead” on this trip, so these are the details:
Volunteer Mission Trip
to Montevideo, Uruguay, South America
Working with S.B.C. International Mission Board Missionary, Mary Swanner
June 11 – 25, 2010
Total trip cost – $3,300
Mary Swanner would like our team to mentor 5 of the Deaf Christians that she serves with (several are quite young), give presentations in the Deaf schools and clubs about Deaf life in America (and then invite folks to an evangelistic service or one-on-one meeting), hold evangelistic services in the capital city of Montevideo and in the interior of the country, train Deaf Christian leaders in subjects that Mary will identify, prayer walk, perhaps lead a craft , witness to people about how the Lord has changed our lives, and share the love of Jesus with everyone we meet!
Do you know anyone who has a passion to see lost people drawn to the Savior? Our team now consists of: Bob Payne (Deaf evangelist residing in Arizona), Pat Himes (interpreter and treasurer for this trip), and myself (interpreter and team leader for many Deaf mission trips over the past 20 years). We are in need of three more Deaf people.
Each of us volunteer missionaries needs to raise our own support, to participate in this trip. Over the years, I have found that if the Lord calls an individual to go, He always supplies the money. If you are a Deaf Southern Baptist and the Lord is speaking to you about going on this mission trip, please contact me as soon as possible. If you are hearing and you know of a strong, committed Deaf Christian who loves Jesus, and is not afraid to step out in faith to share the Gospel, please forward this email to him/her. Perhaps you know of a married couple who has been wanting to go on an adventuresome mission trip. Now is the time! God’s work among the Deaf people of Uruguay is just now beginning to TAKE OFF! Mary Swanner is veeeeery excited about doors that are beginning to open!
Our team is praying for you right now as you read this email. If you are one of the 3 people that God has chosen for this trip, you won’t be able to say, “No” to Him.
Love in Christ,
Barb Coffan <><
