“God Does Answer Prayer”
I believe God answers my prayers. Matthew 6:6 says, “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and the Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.” After I graduated from Tennessee Temple Schools in 1975, I served as Deaf Pastor to Baptist Churches in Texas (4 years), Colorado (1 year), Alabama (1 Year), and Ohio (1 Year). Then served with Bill Rice Ranch Missions as a missionary for (3 years). I felt the Lord wanted me be Deaf Pastor at Faith Baptist Church in Fairless Hills, PA (1986 to 1998). The church cut budget so I asked God for other Baptist church, but God tounched my heart to join Silent Word Ministries with Ted and Carlene Camp. I drove to a church in Phoenixville, PA, for a Fantastic Saturday and talked with the Camps about joining SWM. Ted quickly said, “No,” because he did not have a mission board. The SWM ministry was only for him and his wife. He said he was not interested in starting a mission board. I was confused because God touched my heart to join SWM, but Ted refused to open the door for a mission board. I was disappointed and said, “Okay,” but then I asked Ted to pray about a Deaf Mission Board. After one week of prayer, I still felt I should join with Ted and Carlene Camp at SWM. I was not interested in another board. One day I decided to call Ted again on TTY and told him that God wanted me to join his ministry. I told him again that I felt it was God’s will for me to join with them. Finally God opened Ted’s heart to establish the SWM Mission Board. That was in 1998. The SWMission board now has 14 missionaries and I was the first one. God does answer prayer! God answers the prayers of deaf people, and God can also answer your prayers.
