September 4th: Deaf Christians, East Asia
The deaf in East Asia face a difficult road in their search for Christ. Barriers crop up daily, causing problems for missionaries who are trying to share the Gospel with millions of deaf in this part of the world. Some deaf believe Christianity has hundreds of difficult rules, making it a boring and confusing way of life.
Many families also put a great deal of pressure on deaf adults to conform to the traditional religious practices to gain financial support. Accepting Christ means losing family, home and financial support.
The road is difficult — both for the deaf and the missionaries in East Asia. Our church can help, though, as we give through the Cooperative Program. Let’s join together to pray for the missionaries in East Asia.
