LFD Extends Call to Deaconess Intern to Serve as Commissioned Deaconess

October 10, 2017 | Latest News

Lutheran Friends of the Deaf extended a call to Deaconess Heidi Sias, who is LFD’s former deaconess-intern. The Diploma of Vocation calls Sias to officially serve as a commissioned deaconess for Lutheran Friends of the Deaf of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations in Mill Neck, N.Y., where she will continue to work on the liturgy translation, in teaching church interpreting, as a representative for the organization, and in other ways as needed. After prayerful consideration, Deaconess Sias recently announced that she has joyfully accepted this called position to serve LFD as a remote worker from Missouri. The scheduling of the commissioning and installation is in process. We pray that our Lord would bless our work together as we strive to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are Deaf.

Congratulations, Deaconess Sias!
