In January 1995 our family went through a very difficult time.  While we were away on holiday, an early morning knock at the door brought news that our car had been vandalized and our house burned almost entirely to the ground.  What we had in our suitcases and what we were wearing were now all that we owned.

Throughout this crisis, God’s helping hand was immediate.  We were able to stay in the church manse which was vacant at the time.  It was a comfortable accommodation and was offered free of charge for six months.  Then a Christian friend organized a fundraiser for us, which we accepted with gratitude.  Another friend gave us a Bible, which I still cherish.  While we lost many precious items, our lives were safe and we experienced love that we will never forget.

We now live on two and a half acres of land in the country; God’s blessings have continued daily, and we have learned that no loss is too big for God to restore.

Prayer: We thank you, God, for always watching over us especially in our struggles.  Amen.

Fantastic! I’m so thrilled by God’s goodness that He has brought about such a wonderful way of communicating His love and Gospel to Deaf people. I’m convinced God will use it to His glory and that it will be an effective means of nurturing Deaf Christians for whom church and the Bible is often difficult. You can be assured of my prayers in asking our Father to use these means to reach Deaf people who would never dream of entering a church building. KS
