Irá andando y llorando el que lleva la preciosa semilla; Mas volverá a venir con regocijo, trayendo sus gavillas.Salmos 126:6 RVR1960Realmente es un gozo ver la Palabra de Dios trayendo fe para salvación en las personas. El sábado pasado el equipo y yo fuimos a hacer visitación y encontramos a un hombre sordo, donde tuve el privilegio de llevar a su sobrina nieta a Cristo. Me fue sorprendente ver cuán abierta estaba para aceptar a Cristo ya que las personas en Grenada están expuestas al conocimiento de Cristo, pero aún así, tanto las personas sordas como las oyentes necesitan escuchar el verdadero Evangelio. Oren por nosotros mientras continuamos ayudando a construir un ministerio para sordos y compartiendo el evangelio aquí en Granada.He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.Psalm 126:6 KJVIt truly is a joy to see the Word of God bringing faith for salvation in people. Last Saturday the team and I went out visiting and found a deaf man, where I got the privilege to lead his great niece to Christ. It was surprising for me to see how open she was to accept Christ because people in Grenada are exposed to the knowledge of Christ, but still both deaf and hearing people need to hear the true Gospel. Pray for us as we continue to help building a deaf ministry and sharing the gospel here in Grenada.~Timothy ... See MoreSee Less

We had a chuckle when we saw this image recently. I’ve been reflecting just now about how I am grateful for the the ministry of the indwelling Holy Spirit in our lives. I am thankful we can rely on God’s strength and His working through us, to help us to live in a way that is honouring to Him, rather than straining like this and relying on our own limited strength to live a godly life. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭22‬-‭23‬ ‭KJV‬‬~ Marie ...

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving in the US. I would like to thank the Lord for my salvation and my family. Additionally, I thank the Lord for: 1 - The Go Deaf team here in St Lucia. We are blessed to have all of us together, doing ministry. 2 - The opportunity to talk to the Deaf school about Jesus. We spoke to both the deaf students and teachers in Castries. The teachers were thrilled to see David and Amanda sharing their testimonies 3 - The opportunities to speak to four hearing schools about Jesus. Two schools had 45 students, one had 150 students and the fourth one had 600 students. 4 - The opportunity to teach sign language (classes for adults, children and interpreters). They were eager to learn the sign language. 5 - The opportunities to video the gospel and the team bios for our website. We hope to post them soon!I thank you all for your prayers! Happy Thanksgiving! ... See MoreSee Less

Missions is cool. We get to do a lot of amazing things that others don't, by nature of the ministry. But we are just like you, ordinary people trying to serve God how He has called us. It's not always exciting and glamorous as some might view it. It doesn't make us more spiritual than other Christians as some might like to think. We are real people and we live real lives. I do a lot of sitting at the table teaching school, and Amanda and David do a lot of sitting at the table learning school. We do laundry and dishes. We make our beds (and sometimes we don't) just like you. We all have our limitations, too. But we serve an extraordinary God and Savior, Who has no limitations, and sometimes God is pleased to use our ordinary, real, everyday lives for something beautiful for His glory. I am thankful God chose to use me. I praise Him for the work He is doing in Amanda and David through me, and the work He is doing through them that I get to admire close-up. Nothing is more rewarding than serving God.~ Anna ... See MoreSee Less

He estado interpretando en Lengua de Señas Peruana casi toda mi vida, y por la gracia de Dios también he aprendido Inglés y Lengua de Señas Americana, dos instrumentos adicionales que me permiten servir a Dios en las misiones, ¡Pero nadie me habló de los acentos! ¡He estado luchando para interpretar, estancándome como los nuevos en aprender señas que he ayudado en Perú! A pesar de la frustración y autocrítica, sé que si no practico y sólo dejo de intentarlo ahora, no podré mejorar ni podré servir a Dios de manera efectiva. Ahora estoy experimentando de primera mano, en cada detalle de este viaje, que la teoría de las misiones no se compara con su práctica, y que la experiencia que he adquirido en el ministerio de mi papá no siempre se aplica a cada país. Quiero animar a aquellos que tienen un llamado a servir y se están preparando, a que comiencen a practicar desde donde están ahora y no se limiten a un área determinada de ministerio o región de ubicación. Demos lo mejor de nosotros mismos a nuestro Gran Dios.I have been interpreting in Peruvian Sign Language pretty much my whole life, and by the grace of God I have also learned English and American Sign Language, two additional instruments, allowing me to serve Him in missions, but no one told me about accents! I have been struggling to interpret, stalling like the new signers that I have helped in Peru! Despite the frustration and self-criticism, I know if I don't practice and just stop trying now, I won't be able to improve and serve Him effectively. Now I am experiencing first hand, in every detail of this trip, that the theory of missions is not comparable to its practice, and that the experience I have acquired in my dad's ministry does not always apply to each country. I want to encourage those who have a calling to serve and are preparing, to start practicing from where you are now, and do not limit yourselves in a certain area of ministry or region of location. Let's give the best of ourselves, to our Great God.~Timothy ... See MoreSee Less

We are having an amazing trip to St. Lucia. When we arrived, Pastor Philbert welcomed us with, "Welcome to Paradise." The flora of the island certainly affirms he is correct. We have been teaching sign language at Ambassador Baptist Church and have had the opportunity to visit two schools for children with special needs, including the deaf. People have been so friendly, kind, and welcoming. Today we had the chance to share the Gospel with a few deaf teachers and their students. Some of the teachers are Christians and were very happy to allow us to speak with their deaf and hard of hearing students. It was nice to have Ambassador's deaf pastor Kandal to drive us to the north end of the island today, which is more affluent than where the church is in Vieux Fort. After meeting with the Deaf we are considering the possibility of having a special service for the Deaf in this area in the near future. They tell us the majority of the Deaf live in this area.Pastor Philbert has asked us to pray that God would expand our ministry and create a team to reach the Deaf across the Caribbean. We are praying about what part God will allow us to have in this. It is beautiful to have a pastor who can hear to have such a great burden for the Deaf. We believe God is going to bless it. In a couple of weeks we will be going to Grenada for four weeks and then to Dominica for a little over three weeks. The goal is to lay a foundation for deaf ministries on these islands. We also have an invitation to go to the Cayman Islands early in 2023 before moving to Portugal. We are praying God will give us this opportunity.We have had difficulty getting wifi, but think we have it worked out now. For some reason despite several calls to our bank, our bank cards are being declined everywhere. ATM withdrawals are going through but there is a daily limit. It makes it hard to keep enough cash on hand. There have also been several available visa appointments for Timothy but the US Embassy site has declined every credit card we have tried. Please pray we can get this resolved. It has been unseasonably warm here. We are very grateful for a house with air conditioning where we can be cool at night. When we are outside the air sticks to us. The humidity is between 94 and 98 percent. Usually a breeze cuts the heat just a little.From time to time, we run out of water, but so far we have not been without water for more than a day at a time. We are figuring out ways to adapt to what we have available to us and are managing well. Above all we are so happy to be with our team. Pray God will continue to open doors for us here.~Tricia ...

This conference has been such a help, encouragement, and challenge. I've been to a lot of meetings since I started deputation, but this one has truly made an impression on me. The heart that these preachers have for the Gospel, and for people, is incredible. The preaching has communicated the heart of God so clearly. These men and women have come together not only to talk about the Word of God and give challenges for each one individually, but they are formulating a plan to implement God's will here, together, as a team, supporting each other, praying for one another, pooling their resources, "according as every one had need." I am praying that the plans made here this week will become a reality. A message this morning on how Nehemiah delegated to each one a specific goal, and they worked together and built the walls and gates of Jerusalem because they had "a mind to work," is a great illustration of the vision of these pastors and church members. Each one has a responsibility, all of equal and great importance, and together we can accomplish much. I thank God for putting together this meeting, and allowing me to be part of it, and see His power through it, and be encouraged and strengthened by it. ~ Anna ... See MoreSee Less

It is a beautiful day for flying! My camera can't capture the beauty of the aquatic majesty surrounding the islands below! What an amazing Creator to have thought of beautiful sights! This birdseye view helps me consider how God looks down into the affairs of men. From his vantage point he can see every little detail when we can only see what is right in front. I need to remember this when the close up view I have is limited. Pastor Philbert has a vision to reach the Caribbean islands for Christ and he believes the time is now. We are absolutely thrilled he would ask us to join in his vision and help him include the deaf. How we wish every pastor would catch that vision!The three-wheel turn around to start another trip was pretty tough. After four months of travel we came home to not-what-we-thought. We had hoped to set up our house to rent out but the renovations have not progressed according to plan. Almost all of our belongings have been pulled out of the bedrooms to accommodate the work on the floors. Somehow, probably by owning too many clothes I wound up with clothes in three rooms and the garage distributed to various closets, drawers and suitcases. I do not think well amid clutter and found it is a challenge just to get myself dressed every day. Every one of us was in the same boat, so packing three barrels, eleven suitcases and five carry-ons proved to be an enormous feat. I kept finding myself standing in front of empty closets or in front of bare spots where dressers normally would be. I think every suitcase was, packed, unpacked, and repacked at least once so we could maximize our weight allowance. I am sure I have personally lifted a solid ton this week. Anna helped pack and repack every bag. She is so much help to me.I think we usually start a missions trip tired, and travelling with a group is always a little complicated but this one seemed especially challenging. I really could have used another week at home. Getting to the airport this morning left me feeling like Lucille Ball trying to stuff one more chocolate in her mouth I know it wasn't just my perception because the guy at the check-in counter felt inclined to explain to me the difference between flying domestically and internationally so I would know how to prepare better next time. It did not at all help that our suitcase scale fibbed and we had one bag ten lbs overweight. Please pray God will refresh and strenthen me. There is much to this week in St. Lucia. Anna is with us and we are especially thrilled to be meeting Timothy and Marie on the island. We have been waiting three long years to be reunited. It is such a joy that we will be together once again. We look forward so much to when everyone has their support and we all move to Portugal. We still miss PJ (Paul Mosley) he would have loved a trip like this and he would have helped with all that packing. He is probably looking down at this same magnificent view and praising our great God and Creator!Pray for me. Pastor Philbert has asked me to speak to the ladies. I have been praying and thinking on it for a couple of weeks but my heart still feels unsettled. Pray God will use me to be a blessing and a help. We are in St. Lucia! ... See MoreSee Less

Five years ago, when we began our deputation, we visited Grace Baptist Church in Baldwin, Florida. Pastor Jowers invited us to his office, and we became friends! He invited us back to the Spring Jubilee, where we met Luke Lindsey and his family. Through this meeting, we began a series of relationships with pastors and churches across the country. God brought many new friends into our paths, and we thank the Lord for each one of them. This week, at the end of our deputation, we attended the camp meeting at Grace Baptist Church, back to where it all started.

Yo Jehová, a su tiempo haré que esto sea cumplido pronto.Isaías 60:22bGloria a Dios por los tiempos de espera.Por un tiempo me sentí frustrado y confundido por el rechazo de mi visa. Estábamos viendo la mano de Dios hacer maravillas y permitirme obtener una cita con la embajada en un corto período de tiempo, pero en el momento de la verdad, las cosas no salieron como esperábamos, tuve que quedarme más tiempo en Perú, los planes de ayudar al equipo a preparar las cosas para este viaje misionero a Santa Lucía, y también para mudarse a Portugal tuvieron que quedar en espera, pero ¡Gloria a Dios por los tiempos de espera! Él me permitió quedarme más tiempo y encontrar otra familia sorda aquí en Cieneguilla, más personas llegaron a ser salvas, mis estudiantes de lengua de señas pudieron ver un mensaje en lengua de señas predicado por mi papá y continué sirviendo en distintos ministerios de la iglesia.Por mientras, no puedo entender el cuadro general que Dios está pintando para mi vida, pero mientras sigo orando dependiendo completamente en Dios, trataré de continuar trabajando donde Dios me tiene, y sé que Él, a su tiempo hará que esto sea cumplido pronto.Porfavor sigan orando por mi visa mientras esperamos un segundo intento con la embajada, y oren también por este viaje que se viene al Caribe, para que podamos ser una bendición y una ayuda para Su ministerio.I the LORD will hasten it in his time.Isaiah 60:22bPraise the Lord for the waiting times.For a period of time I found myself frustrated and confused about my visa being refused. We were seeing the hand of God work wonders and he allowed me to get an appointment with the embassy in a very short period of time, but in the moment of truth, things didn't work out the way we expected. I had to stay longer in Peru, and change the plans for helping the team get things ready for this upcoming missions trip to Saint Lucia and move to Portugal had to go on hold, but Praise the Lord for the waiting times! God allowed me to stay here longer and find another deaf family here in Cieneguilla, more people got saved, my sign language students got to see a sign language message preached by my deaf dad, and I continued serving in different ministries of the church.In the meantime, I can not figure out the bigger picture God is painting for my life, but as I'm praying depending completely in God, I will try to continue working where God has me, and I know He will hasten things in his time. Please continue praying for my visa as we are waiting for a second try with the embassy, and pray also for this upcoming trip to the Caribbean, that we can be a blessing and help to His ministry~Timothy ...

Hello everyone! I’m excited for the opportunity I have to share about our team, Go Deaf Missions, at our National Baptist Fellowship in Sydney next week. I’ll also be sharing about our ministry in a couple of churches while I am in this area. I’m thankful that these meetings are now possible again. I have also received my new prayer cards, and here’s a sneak preview for you!~ Marie ... See MoreSee Less

UPDATE ON TIMOTHYWe posted an update this morning and it disappeared from Facebook. We sent letters to the US Consular agent this afternoon delineating that Timothy has no plans to remain in the United States past his visa and that his future plans are to reside in Portugal. We explained that the portal still shows his old appointment preventing us from making a new one. We also requested he be able to fly by September 30. We hope to have a favorable response by Monday. It is fully in God's hands and we trust him with the outcome. ... See MoreSee Less

Go Deaf Missions
UPDATE ON TIMOTHYWe posted an update this morning and it disappeared from Facebook. We sent letters to the US Consular agent this afternoon delineating that Timothy has no plans to remain in the United States past his visa and that his future plans are to reside in Portugal. We explained that the portal still shows his old appointment preventing us from making a new one. We also requested he be able to fly by September 30. We hope to have a favorable response by Monday. It is fully in God's hands and we trust him with the outcome. PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! Timothy is allowed to reapply for an interview without going through the whole visa process again. We need three things:1. We need to be able to get an appointment, but no appointments are being offered at this time. The only appointments are if someone cancels an appointment and it goes to the first person to click on it. 2. We must have an appointment in order to request an emergency appointment. It is at the discretion of the embassy to accept or reject the emergency appointment.3. The visa was denied for failure to prove Timothy would return to Peru. He was never even asked if he would return or asked anything that would indicate whether he would or not. Pray if we can get the appointment, that he will be able to convince the consular agent his intentions are to comply with the visa requirements. A second interview is much more difficult than the first. This visa is very important to us and our team, not only for Timothy but for future missionaries with our team and with our mission board. Thank you for your help in praying!NEW UPDATE: 9/21 We spent the whole day assessing the possibility of a second interview. It looks like it takes three days before we can try to a new interview appointment through the website. Appointments are hard to get. New appointments are not issued but if someone cancells the first person to see it and click on it gets it; they are hard to get. If we do get one, then we can request an emergency appointment. In case there is another way, we sent an email to inquire. We are waiting on an answer. Please keep praying.UPDATE 9/19 The consulate denied the visa request today but we are allowed to make a second attempt. We have submitted an inquiry about obtaining another emergency appointment. We will need to submit a new DS 160 application and pay another application fee. Attached below is the denial statement. It seemed the lady doing the interview was not very familiar with the concept of missions, which impacted the result. Please keep praying with us for God to open this door!URGENT PRAYER REQUEST!For over three years, we have been praying for a young man in South America to join our Go Deaf Missions team. Timothy Pozo is the hearing son of deaf parents who have been missionaries in Peru for many years. It is very complicated and expensive to bring a foreigner to the United States and we have faced many hurdles. We have steadfastly believed God is in it and have trusted Him to work it together. Last February, after months of gathering documents and filling out forms, we submitted an application for an R-1 Religious Workers Visa. In August, the application was approved but there have been other required steps. When we were ready to book his final interview, we were told no appointments were available. The same night, just after midnight, God allowed us to nab an appointment someone else had cancelled. We immediately requested an emergency appointment at the embassy's instruction. We didn't think we fully met the criteria, but in less than 24 hours it was approved. Timothy's final interview is tomorrow morning at 7:30 Central Standard Time!We are requesting some special considerations so he can fly to the United States by September 27. Please pray he has a favorable report with the agent and that passes the interview with permission to fly. We are praying he leaves the interview with visa in hand. Our GOD is ABLE! ...

It is not often I ask prayers for myself, but I am. The last few weeks I have been coughing, and the last few days has turned to a wet cough, with severe coughing at nights. I went to the doctor this morning, and I was prescribed several medication. Pray that I recover quickly, so that we may get back to traveling and Tricia gets her beloved sleep back.
