An exciting new ministry:
In the middle of May, we began conducting Bible clubs at the local Deaf school here in Nakuru.
Initially, we were only granted a one day "trial run" after having been denied permission by the school's Head Teacher. However, the Lord worked in the hearts of the staff and leadership of the school, and we were granted permission to conduct Bible clubs the first and third Saturdays of each month when school is in session. This ministry has been continuing well with an average of 130 students at the Primary school Bible club . . .
. . . and another 40 or more at the High School Bible club.
At each Bible club, my KSL students and I teach the deaf students songs, memory verses, and a lesson from the Word of God.
It has been a blessing to see the KSL students overcoming their fear of using sign language and reaching out to the Deaf.
The Deaf have responded wonderfully and have begun taking active part in the services. We expect to see great things from this ministry in the future!
As part of this new ministry, we are preparing a small gift for each of the deaf students to help with some of the material needs they have. This gift will include some basic school supplies and toiletries as well as Gospel literature and a note from the deaf ministries of Karen Baptist Church and of Grace Bible Baptist Church. In addition, we would also like to be able to include a card or a letter from a similarly aged student in the States.
For these deaf students to receive a letter, much less a letter from America, is unheard of and would be a great blessing to them. If your church, Sunday school class, or Christian school class would like to participate in this, please contact me via my e-mail address below: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you all for your faithful prayers and support,
B.J., Jessi, Seth, and Sabrina Cormier
