2020 was an unexpected year. Travel was largely shut down, the words pandemic and social distancing were on everyone’s hands and lips, and many of our staff learned how to do the majority of their work remotely.
Even though 2020 wasn’t easy for many of us, I am reminded by Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” This pandemic brought an unexpected outcome in 2020 for DOOR. It allowed all of us to step back from traveling and lay out groundwork to better support and sustain our growing ministry. We were forced to be still, and God moved in many powerful ways that showed us that He is, as always, in control.
Virtual Bible studies and fellowships sprang up in the most remote of places. Technology was and continues to be a bridge for all of us to the world outside of our homes. We were able to provide training and build programs that our staff have been needing for years.
We also saw a generous outpouring of prayer and gifts from friends and partners like you. You built a bridge between DOOR and the Deaf of the world with your support, and we are immensely grateful. As we look forward to what God has in store for 2021, we are reminded that unless the Lord builds this house, we are laboring in vain. But if we remain in Him, and He remains in us, we can bear much fruit!
Will you continue helping us build bridges to the Gospel for the Deaf community as we work towards the goal God has given us: to reach 50% of the Deaf worldwide by the year 2025?
All for His glory,
Rob Myers, President/CEO
