2021-01 Prayer Letter (SWM)

Exciting report! In 2020 there were several advances in our unique missionary ministry. Five new missionary “families” were added to the SWM mission team – 3 foreign missionaries, a Deaf church planter, and a youth-focused missionary to the Deaf. SWM online teaching ministry reached out to thousands of people worldwide. SWM again ended the year debt free! There were 129 salvation decisions reported across all areas of our ministry. As the Lord’s coming draws nearer, we continue to move forward and serve the Lord in 2021.
