Bethany Thompson is a missionary whom I met when I was still in college. We both worked in the deaf ministry at the church that we attended. She was very involved and was always focused on the goal of serving the Lord on the mission field. It was an honor to be able to speak with her for this interview.
In this episode Bethany shares with the listeners her desires as an educator and deaf worker. She encourages the listeners to spend as much time as possible learning about the field to which you will be ministering. Bethany also emphasizes the need of missionaries to continue their language studies if they are ministering in a new language. She does not do this in a way to discourage those who are struggling with language, but tries to be an encouragement that it is a life-time process to learn a foreign language.
