Here is the video we showed this past Sunday on how God used a 90 year-old short-term worker to begin to reach the deaf population across the Czech Republic. Southern Baptists prayed in 2001 for a way to reach the deaf of the Czech Republic, and God provided a way! The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering then provided resources for Southern Baptist Missionaries there to build on that beginning:
"In 2001 the Week of Prayer spoke of the Deaf of Czech Republic. Lillian Beard, a ninety-year-old short-term worker went to Czech Republic to work with Vesta Sauter. Lillian attended a deaf club where Anna Smolkova met her. Anna was so taken by Lillian's radiance and the fact that Lillian went to the Czech Republic at ninety years old that she became a Christian soon after they met. Anna's life was dramatically changed. The result was the beginning of a church planting movement among the Deaf of Czech Republic."
