This week we’re praying for Trent and Victoria Mullen, not their real names, who are missionaries to Mexico. You may know a Deaf person, for there are many Deaf people in the United States. Did you know that about five percent of the world’s population is Deaf? That’s more than 460 million people. That’s a vast mission field of people needing to know the Gospel! Trent and Victoria are two missionaries to the Deaf who have trained Deaf Christians across Mexico in how to communicate the Gospel to other Deaf people. Most Deaf people learn best by hearing stories and that means that most of them will listen to Bible stories. In one part of Mexico, Trent and Victoria trained two Baptist women who are Deaf — we’ll call them Ana and Sally. They have been able to share the Gospel with many Deaf people in village after village by telling Bible stories in sign language.
This week we’re praying for the Bohra people of India. The Bohra people are highly educated, successful in business and very prosperous. With a population of 1.2 million, they are a very tight knit community and carry a lot of influence and are even envied among other Muslim and Hindu sects. To become a Christian would mean losing all that society has deemed “valuable”, such as family, friends, status and employment. Pray that they will see their value in the finished work of Christ crucified and not the material things that will perish. Learn more about praying for unreached people groups at www.joshuaproject.net
