Silent Word Ministries International
Missionary to People with
Special Needs in Liberia
Monique Lindsey was raised in Western New York. She made a profession of faith at a young age because of being reached by the bus ministry. After many years or doubting her salvation, she truly accepted Christ as her Savior as a young adult. Monique surrendered to God’s call to the mission field while attending Midwestern Baptist College in Pontiac Michigan.
After serving for seven years as a mission teacher in Puerto Rico, Monique became extremely burdened for students with special needs and learning challenges. This was a burden that began many years before with her first deaf friend at age 11, her first job with United Cerebral Palsy Association at the age of 18, and the sermon of a missionary to Ivory Coast, West Africa.
Upon returning from Puerto Rico, Monique learned of a Christian school ministry, Hidden Treasure Christian School, in Greenville, SC. At that time, it was the only Christian school for children with disabilities. She has been faithfully serving as a teacher and elementary advisor for nearly 15 years. At Hidden Treasure, it was one “unreachable” deaf student with Down’s Syndrome that opened her eyes to those who have never “heard” or experienced the love of Christ or the opportunity of salvation. The miracle of God to reach this child for Christ confirmed that “with God, all things are possible.”
Her burden is to answer God’s call to reach the deaf, individuals with special needs, and their families for Christ, in Liberia, West Africa. The mission is to “make a difference” in the lives of the forgotten individuals with co-disabilities involving deafness or minimal language. Through the love of Christ, she endeavors to teach them to know God, love God, glorify God, serve God, and train others to do the same.
