2022-11 Prayer Letter (SWM)

November/December 2022

Dear SWM Friends,

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands…. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,
and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
” – Psalm 100:2, 4

The recent Thanksgiving holiday reminded us to be thankful always, not only at one time of the year. Silent Word Ministries is thankful to God for His blessings upon this unique ministry. The Lord has blessed SWM with a great mission team, reaching the Deaf and others with the Gospel. Let me introduce them to you.

Ministry Travel Van – After years of saving and a special gift, SWM now has a good ministry travel van. Thank you to those who helped. It has already been used, and will be used to safely carry groups to special Deaf events and more.

Through October there have been 220 salvation decisions reported through all areas of our ministry. Thank you for your part in helping these come to Christ!

Enclosed is a pamphlet for you to read and share with others. SWM will send more free, upon request.
