Highlights from the Ethiopia Lutheran Deaf Mission

Posted on

Despite the aggressive spread of the pandemic we are trying to meet with our Deaf Lutheran friends and pray together. In this picture are some of our Deaf leaders gathered for their annual thanksgiving program. We were greatly encouraged by the Word of God.

The Lord gave us a new vision to work on the Jesus film. Though this film was created many years ago it is not yet interpreted into our Ethiopian Sign language. My children are now involved in this translating work and we hope that in the coming two or three months it will be completed and our Deaf people will enjoy it.

More and more Deaf people are coming to learn about marriage issues. Some will marry very soon. This is our new year. People are smiling hope. We even started to go back to churches every Sunday. We never lose hope. We give thanks to our Lord Jesus.





Most Ministries eyeglass clinic at Hosanna Lutheran School for the Deaf in Ethiopia

Pictured are Deaconess Diana Rice and Pastor Bahiru, the latter whom Trinity supports for his monthly missionary expenses, are presenting eye health and an overview of God’s plan of salvation in His Son Jesus during a 2-week Most Ministries eyeglass clinic at Hosanna Lutheran School for the Deaf in Ethiopia. Their presentation is to new students to the school. These children came to the school from the countryside where there is no access to education for Deaf children. They arrived at an average of 10 years of age for their first time ever in a school. Already after 1 month, they are quickly picking up language in a loving, nurturing Christian environment where everyone knows and uses sign language.
