The answer — Because we sometimes forget.

When we look at the LWML Mission, Vision, and Primary Focus statements, we see these words: assist each woman, each woman is welcomed, we offer each woman, we accept and encourage each woman, we equip each woman.

“Envisioning a world where the deaf community participates equally and fully in the body of Christ” is the vision of the Lutheran Friends of the Deaf.

nullWe have deaf sisters in many of our LCMS churches. Sometimes we don’t reach out because of the language barrier. We think we cannot communicate, but we can with love.

This is an opportunity to equip ourselves to support the encourage “each” deaf woman in our church.  

Special Focus Ministries has led the intentional outreach programs for young women and multicultural women for many years. To be true to our statements of each women, we need to intentionally reach out to our deaf sisters to involve them in active participation in the LWML. 

More information on outreach to the deaf community will be coming to our website soon.null
