Quiero darle gracias a Dios por las personas que pone en nuestro camino. Este es el Evangelista Jairo Villaseca Panta, un amigo m铆o que fue de bendici贸n para m铆 como pastor de j贸venes y un gran mentor personal durante la pandemia. Me dio entrenamiento ministerial, incluidas clases de predicaci贸n y evangelizaci贸n.脡l dirige un programa de radio cristiano, al que tuve el privilegio de ser invitado y hablar en algunas ocasiones. Este es uno de sus ministerios. Me invit贸 una vez m谩s a compartir un devocional y un testimonio personal este lunes pasado, y a la vez aprovech茅 para pedir oraciones por Amanda. Al final, hubo muchas respuestas de los oyentes en seis pa铆ses diferentes. 隆Gloria a Dios!I want to give thanks to God for the people He places in our paths.

These last several weeks have been so difficult with Amanda. Two weeks ago, after a few courses of medication, we were so relieved to see her start to improve but it was short lived. After about four good days the confusion and sleeplessness returned along with a host of other things. We did some tests and found she had another UTI. More doctors and more tests are in our near future. Please keep praying for a full recovery. It is a blessing to know so many people who care. Thank you all. ... See MoreSee Less

Even though our travel plans have been interrupted, the time we are at home trying to help Amanda has been good in other ways as well. Slowly but surely, important household tasks are getting scratched off the "to do" list and little projects are getting accomplished. Out of the last two years, I don't think we were home even ten weeks of nights. We stayed on the road, but always with a nagging feeling about the growing list of household needs. I will be the first to admit that the timing of all this does not seem convenient, but I believe God has a purpose in it all. For now, I am thankful to have some time to focus on some household items that have been needing attention. There are more than a few. ~Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

Today I have been at home, and one of my housemates and I decided to prune back our grape vine. I was reminded of one of my favourite passages of scripture in John chapter 15, about the true vine. When I was baptised, I was asked which verses I would like to have written in calligraphy on a certificate to remember my baptism day. I chose this passage and it鈥檚 been a helpful passage to come back to time and again in my life. I鈥檓 thankful for how it has become richer to me in meaning over time. I am honoured that God continues to take time to prune out areas of my life that need to be purged, and helps me to grow in ways that are honouring to Him.~ Marie ... See MoreSee Less

It is about as hot and muggy in Jacksonville as it can get. We are busy batting down the hatches as we keep one eye on Idalia making it's way into the Gulf. We have not made a decision to leave town as of yet but it is still on the table for consideration. This morning, Timothy helped me clean out the shed and reorganize it so we can squeeze in the BBQ grill and some of the porch furniture. It was already on my to do list but a hurricane acomin' is some pretty good motivation. I am hoping the lawn people are going to show up before the storm. After four or five inches of rain the grass will be sky high and it will be days before they can mow. A day like today reminds me what a servant PJ always was. He always came to do storm prep either with us or for us. Most of the time he would show up with Elliano's coffee or lunch from Chick-Fil-A. He was a faithful friend and co-laborer. We have the car gassed up, the propane tanks full, and I am going to make a big pot of spaghetti. My worst concern is that the power could go out for a few days and everything in the fridge would spoil. Other than that there is always the chance the big tree in the front yard could come down but it has weathered a good number of storms through the years. Lots of people will have to worry about flooding but we are on some of the highest ground in our city. We should be good. We are praying for our many friends in Lake City. Current models show they will catch the full force of the storm but these things can change quickly. I have several more jobs to get finished today, so I need to get moving. We are trusting the Lord and so glad that our God is bigger than the storm.~ Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

The last several weeks have been quite a roller coaster with Amanda. We have worked with several doctors and still don't have all the answers we need. This whole thing is one big snowball of physical, emotional, and spiritual needs all converging and conflicting at the same time. We have run a number of labs multiple times, contributing factors include a UTI, an amoeba, and scoliosis. Right now the latest two blood exams and the urine labs came back normal. We are asking God for great wisdom in helping Amanda and sticking pretty close to home while we sort this out. Thank you so much for your prayers.~Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

I'm experiencing the crazy weather of a Florida summer for the first time!We have heat waves in the mornings with temperatures that go up to 95掳F -which makes it really pleasant to work outside, (I'm joking), and then a torrential thunderstorm in the afternoon that can either last for a few minutes or for hours until the evening.

Over the last few months I鈥檝e been working on a translation of a Gospel message in Auslan, after a friend asked me to prepare it. I鈥檓 thankful for my friend Susan, who helped to prepare a translation of the original English script in Auslan, which I was then able to use as a model, to learn how to convey some complex ideas! It was a challenge to work out how best to work with the material I had, with a few roadblock moments along the way, but I have learned a lot through the process. Note: The captions show the original English script.

By nature I am an organizer, but figuring out what to pack, what to leave in the house, what to pass onto adult kids, and what to donate is a pretty complicated process. I need a lot of prayer. All during deputation, we have packed items for Portugal and have now discovered that every item must be itemized with a value on the bill of laden. We have the list, but not the values and figuring out values on used household items for customs officials to evaluate is daunting. Any new items will be assessed for duty. We have to check every item to eliminate store packaging and price tags! This was not the case back when we moved to Germany. Ugh! There is nothing I hate more than redoing work, especially when I already have another mountain of work in front of me. I have no desire to open all those packed boxes. I have to keep praying for endurance.For the next three days we plan to tackle the garage, which is the hardest for me. The garage is the storage place for all the"in case we need it again" items. It is also where old memories and dreams go to hide. Unfinished projects lie in wait to spring out of dark corners and overstuffed totes. Just the boxes of photos are probably a two month project. I have to keep praying for strength.Even worse, hovering above is the attic where all the holiday memories gather waiting to be unleashed year after year. They share their space with the precious items set aside for our kids to have someday for families of their own. I have to keep praying for comfort. I don't want to pay to ship stuff I don't need and I certainly don't want to get rid of stuff that I will turn around and have to buy again. Already, I inadvertently disposed of a couple items that we needed to finish projects around the house. Packing to move to a house you have never seen is quite a challenge. I have to keep praying for wisdom.Projects around the house are yet another mountain to tackle. Staying focused on packing is hard when every where I look there some work to be done. It feels chaotic and I do not thrive in chaos. I keep telling myself, "Pack first, fix later." The problem is I want it all done now, and I need it all done soon. I have to keep praying for patience.All of these "difficulties" are really just the evidence of God's many blessings on our lives. He has always provided all we need and more. He gave us a family to love and care for, a beautiful home where we could build precious memories, and a ministry that has carried us all over the world. I don't know anyone that can claim they have been more blessed than we have, and all these difficult decisions are the very proof. I have to keep praying for thankfulness.If I can just keep it in my heart that God will meet every need regardless of what we keep or leave behind, all will be well. He has always taken care of us and I need to trust Him now. He is a good God. I need to keep praying for faith.~ Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

We are mostly home for the next couple of months to pack and move to Portugal. Since the last time we looked, Portugal seems changed some of the information regarding visa requirements. A visit to their immigration website and a written request for information from the Portuguese consulate have left us confused about the order of steps we need to take and the length of time we have to be in Portugal to maintain a resident visa. Hopefully, a subsequent letter will help us gain specific information. We have a tremendous amount of work in front of us and we are waiting on God for some specific answers to prayer. I feel like our deputation has been long but John reminds me we have taken several missions trips and worked through two years of societal restraints. It still feels long. There is a lot to get done but I am excited about what God has for us just ahead. We have already been working hard for a week and my wrists and hands are inflamed and sore. I sure need the Lord to strengthen my hands. The biggest burden on my heart is for some people we love to turn their hearts and lives over to Christ before we leave the country. We are praying for God to interrupt their lives with His presence. It is hard to go out to the world with the Gospel when there are people we love who need it right here at home. ~Tricia ...

As we travel from city to city, state to state, and country to country, we find a need for someone to reach the Deaf with the Gospel in almost every place. As we are preparing to leave Grand Cayman, again I feel that familiar tug to stay because as in almost every place we have gone the Deaf desire someone would minister to them. There is a need for someone to preach for the Deaf here and it burdens my heart. My mind goes back to all of the years we spent training young people to sign and interpret, how many came to us confessing a call to reach the Deaf in missions or to preach the Gospel to the Deaf, but instead were carried away with the cares of this world and enticed to abandon the call. Those are just the ones we know, but when talk with pastors of deaf churches we find many have had similar experiences.Would to God that He would send laborers for the Deaf into His harvest and that they would heed the call with urgency and fervor. The time seems so short and the task so great. Would you pray with us that God will draw the wayward back and that He would give us young people who are committed to the cause of Christ? The Deaf need effective Gospel witnesses all across the globe.Mark 16:15 Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to EVERY creature. ~Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

Remembering Patch the Pirate In the summer of 1981, a group of deaf and I went for a week of summer camp at the Wilds Christian Camp in North Carolina. Ron "Patch the Pirate" Hamilton was the main speaker for the week. Patch noticed the deaf group and came to talk with us. He asked if we liked music and if we could hear it at all. Then, he asked if we wanted him to teach us some things about music. That week, he took time on several days to fellowship with the deaf, explaining things about the piano and other instruments. I enjoyed hearing his testimony about the cancer doctors discovered in his eye. It was an encouragement to me that God would use him missing one eye more than when he had two. At the end of the week, and after hearing I was called to preach to the deaf, he came to encourage me personally. He challenged me to serve the Lord despite the fact I was deaf.I thank the Lord he allowed me to meet Patch the Pirate. He is now in Heaven with perfect vision, and someday, in Heaven, I will hear his music.~ John ... See MoreSee Less

Cantamos este himno el Domingo de Resurrecci贸n, pero debido a algunas complicaciones con el sistema de sonido, no se pudo comunicar el mensaje de la canci贸n con precisi贸n, por lo que decidimos tratar de solucionar el problema y cantarla una vez m谩s el pr贸ximo domingo. En las misiones, y en la vida en general, siempre puede pasar lo inesperado, y aunque creas que preparaste todo con anticipaci贸n, siempre puede pasar algo que nos d茅 una sacudida, pero que no debe impedirnos seguir dando lo mejor de nosotros. a llevar el Evangelio.We sang this song on Easter Sunday, but due to some complications with the sound system, we were not able to deliver the message of the song accurately, so we decided to try to fix the issue and sing it one more time the next Sunday. In missions, and in life in general, the unexpected can always happen, and even if you think you prepared everything ahead of time, something can always happen that throws us for a loop, but that should not stop us from continuing to give our best to carrying the Gospel.~Timothy ...

Consegu铆 enfermarme en este viaje! No es realmente algo que quisiera que me sucediera, pero saben amigos, como dijo Anna hace tiempo, solo somos personas, siervos imperfectos que quieren seguir la voluntad de un Dios perfecto. Fue frustrante tener que quedarme en cama sin hacer nada durante un par de d铆as, pero a veces esos momentos de descanso son cuando podemos tener comuni贸n con 脡l por m谩s tiempo. Ahora quiero agradecer a Dios que estoy mejorando y puedo continuar trabajando, descansado y con m谩s energ铆a para dejar que Dios use a este siervo imperfecto.I managed to get sick on this trip! Not really something that I wanted to have happened, but you know guys, like Anna said a while ago, we are just people, imperfect servants wanting to follow the will of a perfect God. It was frustrating to have to stay in bed and do nothing for a couple of days, but sometimes those moments of rest are when we can commune with Him for longer. Now I want to thank God that I'm getting better and can continue to work, rested and with more energy to let God use this imperfect servant. ~Timothy ... See MoreSee Less

Normalmente, cuando encuentra una persona sorda, uno puede averiguar d贸nde es que el resto de su comunidad se re煤ne o pasa el rato, pero aqu铆 en Gran Caim谩n, la comunidad Sorda no parece estar tan bien conectada como estamos acostumbrados a ver en otros lugares. Me alegr茅 mucho cuando vi a esta persona Sorda, que conocimos en una tienda al por mayor, entrando por las puertas de la iglesia en el culto de esta noche. 脡l ya conoce a Cristo como su Salvador y estaba emocionado por la pr茅dica de John y la comuni贸n que tuvimos despu茅s. 脡l tiene baja visi贸n y tuve el privilegio de interpretar en sus manos una parte del culto de esta noche.Usually, when you find one deaf person, you can figure out where the rest of their community meets or hangs out, but here in Grand Cayman, the deaf community does not seem to be as well connected as we are used to seeing in other places. I was so glad when I saw this deaf man that we met in a wholesale store, coming through the church doors in the service tonight, He already knows Christ as his Savior and was thrilled for John's sermon and the fellowship that we had afterward. He has low vision and I had the privilege of tactile interpreting into to his hands a part of the service tonight. ~Timothy ... See MoreSee Less

Timothy and I've been volunteering in a school with an adorable little deaf girl who is just learning language. In so many ways she reminds me of Amanda at the time we adopted her. The family is in Cayman from another country and we were able to meet with some of them today. We are hoping they can make it to some of the upcoming services and also to our sign language classes and that we can help her family find good education solutions. Please pray with us that God will put his blessing on this work and help this family in every way they need. They are such sweet people.~ Tricia ... See MoreSee Less

The past two weeks in Grand Cayman, I have had the privilege of going with David to experience the Christian school setting. Interpreting is a great job. I get to be part of the fun but still go relatively unnoticed. David has so enjoyed being a part of the Christian school here, making friends, learning from different teachers, and having a tight schedule. The kids and teachers love him, too. David has spread "awareness" about deaf people and sign language just by being himself, and doing normal everyday things. ~ Anna ... See MoreSee Less

S. Marcos 16:15 RVR1960"Y les dijo: Id por todo el mundo y predicad el evangelio a toda criatura." Este es el vers铆culo del ministerio Go Deaf Missions. Es nuestro lema, y era mi sue帽o de ni帽o, predicar como mi pap谩, pero al crecer los afanes de este siglo me chocaron. No quer铆a involucrarme en el ministerio y menos predicar frente a un p煤lpito. Sentia que era demasiado trabajo tratar de pensar qu茅 decir acerca de la Biblia, incluso despu茅s de entregar mi vida al ministerio tiempo completo, siempre evitaba las oportunidades que ten铆a para predicar, diciendo que no necesitaba predicar para servir a Dios. Un d铆a hablando con un evangelista amigo m铆o, le estaba explicando mi visi贸n del ministerio que quer铆a hacer y 茅l me llev贸 de vuelta a esa gran comisi贸n que Jes煤s nos dio, predicar el Evangelio. Ese es el llamado de Dios para cada cristiano, independientemente de si trabajamos en el ministerio o en un entorno secular. Entend铆 que estaba poniendo l铆mites a lo que Dios querr铆a que hiciera para 脡l, y agradezco a Dios que despu茅s de cambiar mi actitud, 脡l puso muchas oportunidades en mi vida para predicar, dentro y fuera del p煤lpito. Hoy quiero alabar al Se帽or por la bendici贸n que me da para seguir cumpliendo el anhelo que ten铆a de peque帽o, de seguir los pasos de mi pap谩, y predicar la Palabra de Dios.Mark 16:15 KJV"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."This is the verse of the Go Deaf Missions ministry. It is our statement, and it was my dream as a kid, to preach like my dad, but growing up the cares of this world hit me. I didn't want to be involved in the ministry and even less to preach in front of a pulpit. I used to feel like it was too much work to try to figure out what to say about the Bible, even after I surrendered my life to full time ministry, I always avoided the opportunities that I received to preach, saying that I didn't need to preach in order to serve God.One day, talking to an evangelist friend of mine, I was explaining to him my vision of the ministry I wanted to do and he took me back to that great commission Jesus gave us, to preach the Gospel. That is what God called each Christian to do, regardless of whether we work in the ministry, or in the secular setting. I understood that I was putting limits to what God would want me to do for Him, and I thank Him that after changing my attitude, God put many opportunities in my life to preach, in and out of the pulpit.Today, I want to praise the Lord for the blessing that He gives me to continue fulfilling the desire I had when I was a kid to follow my dad's steps and preach the Word of God.~Timothy ...

Yesterday Go partnered with the church here going door-to-door inviting folks to church and Bible study in the community. I also asked about deaf people and a couple of ladies told me about a deaf woman who wanders the street regularly, and another deaf woman whose mother lives on a nearby street. They also said we can check the post office because at least two deaf work there. This morning, the lady who taught the teens' Sunday school knows a deaf woman who comes to the bank where she works.
