Searving The Deaf Community In Peru
WBI has partnered with the Christian Missionary Alliance Church of Lima Cercado to establish a Deaf Ministry within their church. This is a very dynamic ministry, as we are all learning how best to serve the Deaf Community in and around this area of Lima. Currently we support Pedro Hidalgo, a Deaf man who is a missionary in his own community. Pedro has been trained by DOOR, a Deaf Sending Agency, in how to reach Deaf people in their own language. We face many challenges within this ministry, but in spite of those challenges Pedro has a growing and vibrant ministry, not only in the church, but also in a home-church that he has established. We are constantly seeking new ways to improve the quality of life within this community, and we believe that these services need to originate within the Church.
