Mission Trip Opportunity to DeafNation World Expo
AWAKE! “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame” (1 Cor.15:34). The work of God does not stop, nor should it slow down. “Work for the night is coming. “Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep… The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light” (Rom.13:11-12). Have you ever been on a missions trip? Have you ever wished that you would have an opportunity to do something special for the Lord? Have you ever desired to reach more people for Jesus Christ? In July of 2020, the DeafNation World Expo will return to Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a secular event. Between 10,000 and 20,000 deaf people, along with others associated with the deaf community, will descend on Las Vegas for this international expo. Many of these deaf and hearing people still do not know Christ personally. Deaf people from every continent will be in attendance! God has raised up SWMI specifically with a burden, a passion, and a vision to reach these people for Christ! SWMI is planning to have three different booths with Gospel materials to present to these Deaf from around the world. Therefore, we are planning to take a team of 36-40 missionaries, pastors, and other volunteers for the sole purpose of soul-winning evangelism. SWMI is looking for men and women, deaf and hearing, and leaders and layman to join this evangelistic team. Pastors and churches should consider sending your leaders to participate in this missions trip. Your leaders will return home with a greater burden for the lost. They will have wonderful testimonies of God’s blessings, which will impact your deaf ministry as well as your church. At the 2010 DeafNation World Expo, we saw 12 professions of faith. At the 2012 DeafNation World Expo we saw 36 professions of faith. At the 2016 we saw 98 professions of faith made with the team members at the two different booths that we rented! God is still in the soul-saving business.
