Shreveport Louisiana: March 20, 2016. We are speaking on Sunday morning at Westview Christian Church, one of our supporting churches. In the afternoon, we are doing a Deaf outreach in Shreveport at the First United Methodist Church. All area churches that have Deaf Ministries or anyone interested in Deaf Ministries are invited to join at First Methodist Shreveport for a time of praise and worship. Fellowship and potluck will follow! Please pray for this event, and if you are in the area, please feel welcomed to come.
More DeafNation outreach in Spring of 2016. We are still awaiting a schedule.
Las Vegas Nevada: July 2016. We will be going to the DeafNation World in Las Vegas Nevada where they are expecting 50,000 Deaf. We will distribute tracts and DVDs from our booth, and share on the DeafNation stage.
Because there will be so many in attendance at DeafNation World, we are looking for 25-30 missionaries to join us. These volunteers will be representing Expressions of Emmanuel at this DeafNation event. Their helping hands will hand out tracts, DVDs, and share the gospel message using the tracts on the spot.
We are looking for people who:
- love Jesus and pray for this event
- are willing to pay their own way
- have various levels of sign ability. We will teach, those who need, 30 signs that will be used in handing out our DVDs and tracts at our booth.
- are willing to be totally quiet, absolutely no talking the whole time at DeafNation events. This is a MUST. Please understand that this is to let the Deaf know we care about them. When people talk (use their voice) and do not sign, this is rude and the Deaf feel excluded. We want to make everyone to feel welcome and comfortable at our booth. So a vow of silence during this time is crucial.
Please pray about this need and consider joining and serving with us.
Bible story and devotional videotaping. This is an ongoing thing. We have one to two videotaping sessions each month. We are thankful for all those who give their time to help us in this endeavor. Please pray for God’s provision for volunteers and interns in the future.
