When we were building out our Buda campus, one of the faithful, hard workers was a young deaf guy named Javier Reyes, who served many Saturdays working with sheetrock and doing whatever he could to make our facilities a place where people would have the best opportunity to connect with Christ.
He is now a student with Deaf Missions at the International Bible Training Center to learn to minister to other deaf people. He is going this June to an orphanage in Kenya and in July to a deaf school in Uganda with Operation Deaf Orphans. This mission group reaches out to and helps neglected and abandoned deaf children.
It’s pretty amazing to know that we’ve got people who are going all over the world to fulfill the mission God has given us! As a church, we’re helping to fund his trip and praying for his effectiveness and safety. We’re looking forward to hearing a report of his success when he gets back at the end of the summer!
