    I’m deaf


    I would like to learn more of sign language. Do you have classes? I am a hearing nurse. Thank you. Adriana Olson 865-603-2889


    I said goodbye to you today at Providence Baptist Church in Coopertown, TN with a heart longing to be part of deaf ministries. While driving out of town in our RV, Ernie plugged in a recording of sermons from last summer’s North Idaho campmeeting. The MP3 file had been on our desk at home for many months – we kept meaning to listen to it all this time but didn’t take the opportunity until this trip. One preacher’s name was new to us. Lawrence Shillenburg gave his testimony of being born hearing to two deaf parents. What a Godly surprise to learn of his ministry only a few minutes after being inspired by YOU at the Missions Conference! Sweet, powerful timing, no? It caused an even deeper desire to go to the 2 month classes. Praying for God’s will in this, Judi Carlson.

    Hello! Great to see the website up and that the Lord is blessing with classes in full operation. Warm thoughts from Fairbanks, AK. Maybe someday will get to see you again. 🙂

    I have called 4 times over the past 3 years and written to the provided emails and even texted and i have received 2 replies that said i would be contacted which i still have not had happen. I even filled out the form and handed it in at my church so i know it was received. i am only wanting to find out if i can still take the sign language class and perhaps become part of the staff to be able to actually use the skill and strengthen it while assisting the school. could someone please just answer me and help me know if this is just my chasing a dream that has no answer for.

      Hi teresa,
      I just saw this website for first time. I am sorry you are having difficulty getting answers. Try contacting them through the sword deaf ministry facebook page. If you still have problems, contact me through facebook.

    • My husband works in computers. I wonder if they have been somehow locked out of their accounts, maybe a password loss or something. Hopefully they will get the issue solved and contact you soon. God bless! Hang in there 🙂
