Back To Prayers

Pray for: Ministry to Deaf Students

Monday, June 5th, 2023

Amanda McKinney and Pastor Carlos teach and mentor Deaf students at Refugio de Esperanza in Pucallpa, Peru. The school hosts primary, preschool, and special needs schools in the mornings and high school in the afternoons. Carlos works with seven students in the mornings. He rotates between the classrooms to work individually with the Deaf students while the classroom teacher works with the rest of the class. In the afternoons, they teach 12 Deaf students. These students are not in regular classrooms but are together in Amanda’s classroom with Carlos as an assistant. It is challenging and a bit crazy planning lessons around the 12 different students’ levels, but they are learning and thriving. Five deaf students are seniors this year, so it is bittersweet for Amanda after seven years of knowing them. Please pray that the Lord helps Amanda and Carlos invest well in the five seniors.
