Friends of the deaf international / help needed

The following link is to friends of the deaf international. http://www.friendsofthedeaf.net/

Their stated mission is “Friends of the Deaf is a North Dakota based mission society with a passion for bringing the Good News of Jesus to the “forgotten deaf” in Cameroon and other developing countries. The Forgotten Deaf are.those who are isolated by distance, geography, and marginalized socially, with little chance of learning to read, write, or sign unless they receive help”

I know the Rev. Jarrett personally and he is a self funded missionary that goes to many dangerous places to spread the word of God, including Russia, Ukraine and his current mission in Cameroon. I have warned him many times of the dangers that he could face from proselytizing in Muslim areas but he heeds God instead of me.   The good Reverend is far from wealthy and has used the majority of the money he has made in his life to support his work. He lives in a humble abode in ND with his wife and is currently the Pastor of a small local church. The only way that he finances travel, school buildings,farm animals and such is through donations.   He has no bureaucracy that eats funds; He is a man who jumps on a plane to go sweat in the African heat and build schools.    I would ask of you to please host this link in your blogroll or links area as traffic to his site in the long term would be greatly helpful. If not I understand as we all have reasons as to what we have in links and blogrolls. Thanks and pass it around if you get a chance
