Expressions of emmanuel march supporter newsletter

  1. 1. This past month has been busy! The Hamiltons went to Florida March 7th through the 17th for the DeafNation Jacksonville convention, and to visit their friends the Dickisons, and for local deaf outreaches. Dale Dickison is Steve’s kindergarten buddy and an accomplished videographer. The Dickisons were so hospitable, and Dale was very encouraging about Steve’s video work. Since then, we have been in the mission office, busy preparing for upcoming outreaches in Kansas and Dallas, and making summer plans. Steve has been very busy editing Bible lessons and songs. The trip to Florida was a big success. Here is a link to a video from DeafNation. http://deafnation.com/dnexpo/jacksonville-fl/ Vonda is in there, about ¾ of the way through. The Hamiltons were able to give out many DVDs to area deaf churches, and were able to give away approximately five hundred DVDs and many more tracts to the people who attended DeafNation. Selah had opportunity to play with several children while their parents talked to Vonda and Steve. They loved the globe puzzle! At the upcoming DeafNation conferences we will bring a bean bag chair and some coloring pages about Jesus, as well as some Bible story books to share with the children.
  2. 2. While they were there, they were able to encourage many people, and share devotionals on the stage. There was a deaf five-year-old boy named Jonah who they met. He had the Big Bible Stories Jonah movie, and was extremely excited to get to meet Miss Vonda! We loved seeing his excitement and love for the word of God! The churches where they fellowshipped and shared DVDs were Trinity Baptist Deaf Church, Southpoint Community Church, and Promised Land Deaf Church. The Southpoint Deaf Ministry teaches a religious training class (Bible Study) at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind for the deaf youth of all ages every week. We sent a DVD for each student attending the Bible classes, which is between 18-22 children. We gave it to them in hopes that they would share them with unbelieving friends. Southpoint Deaf Ministry reported to us that the deaf youth were just so excited to receive the DVDs! While in Florida, they went to a church that has been sweet to us over the years, Keystone Heights Christian Church. They met their friend, Glenda who
  3. 3. is losing her hearing. She is trying to learn sign as fast as she can. Vonda was able to visit with her and encourage her. Please pray for her. Also, Finley Norris, a baby who they met in Alaska, has recently had a successful cochlear implant surgery, and her whole family is learning sign language. Debbie Chapman is doing a great job teaching them. Pray for them also. We trying very hard to get the “Eighteen” DVD out soon, and there are still many licenses to get. Please pray hard for this! We are working on putting out 5-7 new DVDs this year. This important work will take several thousand dollars to get accomplished, and we are asking for your help. The total production cost for 1,000 DVDs is $1,399.63. We order the DVDs in batches of 1000 to get the best rate. We are asking that you consider helping us sponsoring a DVD order. We hope your church or your family comes together to sponsor a title. We will put your names in the credits, if you wish. The new titles coming out this year are: “Eighteen”- Everything is God’s, Hope, Trust, Enjoy Everyday Now! “Ha, Devil, You’re a Loser!” -Sharing the Love of Jesus in Hawaii and Alaska. Part One- Belly Laugh Ha, Devil, You’re a Loser!” -Sharing the Love of Jesus in Hawaii and Alaska. Part Two- LOL “The Last Frontier”-Digging deeper into God’s word, seeking to treasure Christ, our families, and Heaven. Songs of Sara Groves in Alaska
  4. 4. “Two Feet Forward”- Ten songs from a wonderful music group with the same name “American Sign Language Bible Lessons across Israel”, Part One American Sign Language Bible Lessons across Israel”, Part Two If you choose to join us in this DVD production, we would be glad to put your name in the credits, if you would like.
