Reach The Deaf
This is my mission. This is my calling.
Ever since I was a teenager, God has given me a heart for missions. I am now going to work with the Deaf in Peru, South America, and would love for you to partner with me.
“Behold, I have set before thee
an open door, and no man can shut it.”
Hello, I’m Karyn Conrad
The Lord has called me to reach the deaf and hearing with the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a teenager, God gave me a heart for missions. It was not until college that He allowed me to visit a Deaf ministry in Peru, South America. Since then, I have had three more opportunities to visit and God has now opened the door for me to serve at Efata Baptist Ministries.
Efata is a ministry founded by Vernon and Velma Miller more than 40 years ago, and has been under the direction and leadership of Joe and Lisa Kotvas since 1998. They currently operate a school for the Deaf with about 60 deaf children, a school for the missionary children with about 16 students, as well as an orphanage for the Deaf. They also run Efata Baptist Church that has weekly services for both the hearing and deaf communities around them.
The Lord has touched my heart and given me a burden to serve in this amazing ministry. In the beginning, it is my plan to teach in the missionary children’s classroom in the mornings and work through a Spanish curriculum in the afternoons. Later on, I will transition into one of the deaf classrooms. I will also help the ministry establish and operate a more organized child support program. Ultimately, it is my desire to be a help to the ministry and missionaries there.
Will you please pray for me as I follow the direction of the Lord in my life? Thank you so much for your time and God bless!
