Missionaries to the Deaf in Africa
Bruce and Amanda Stuart were both raised in Christian homes, and both trusted in Christ for salvation at an early age. Bruce began learning sign language when he worked at the Bill Rice Ranch in Tennessee, and continued studying it at New England Baptist College where he also received his degree in Missions. Amanda started learning ASL when a deaf couple began attending her home church, and continued to study it at New England Baptist College, where she received a degree in Office Administration. The Lord burdened both of their hearts for Deaf missions. As a senior in high school, God gave Bruce a burden for the country of Gabon, Africa. For five years, Bruce and Amanda pursued going to Gabon as missionaries both to the Deaf and hearing. Recently, God closed doors to go to Gabon, but is opening doors for them to begin missionary work in Liberia, Africa. They plan to assist a team in opening a deaf and special needs school in the capital of Monrovia, as well as help establish a training center for nationals. They will work with a local church to reach lost souls for Christ, and to disciple them in their walk with Christ.
