Prayer Requests

  • Pray for the Rudd’s as they take on new responsibilities at Isaiah 55, including the internship program and visiting work teams. Please also pray for direction for Marcus as he aids in the vocational program.

 

  • Pray that the deaf school will continue to grow, and a new deaf outreach program can be realized with their teammate, Keila Aleman, and their teacher to the deaf, Tereso.

 

  • Pray for Heather who has been homeschooling their children since the onset of the pandemic. This will be her first year teaching alone since the friends that they schooled with last year have moved. Calder is in 4th grade this year and Samantha is in 1st grade. Pray for wisdom, discernment, and that they can make school fun!

 

About
 

Marcus and Heather Rudd serve with MTW and Isaiah 55 Ministries in Reynosa, Mexico, on the Mexico/Texas border. Isaiah 55 was started to educate the deaf and in 2006 opened the first school for the deaf in Reynosa. In 2012, they began offering vocational courses in welding, carpentry, and sewing. Isaiah 55 has also launched a neighborhood outreach initiative to reach the community in Achiles, where the mission is located.

Using his experience in art and construction, Marcus’ role is overseeing, developing, and implementing curriculum for the vocational program alongside national leadership. Educating the deaf students in this way helps to provide them with an income for themselves and their families, giving a concrete example in their lives of Christ’s love and grace for them. Marcus also helps oversee projects with short-term U.S. work teams that come to serve at Isaiah 55.

Heather’s first responsibility is caring for their two children, Calder and Samantha. She is also involved in Isaiah 55’s neighborhood after-school outreach program, coordinates the student sponsorship program, and helps in administrative tasks for the mission. In addition, she uses her gifting in hospitality with the U.S. work teams.
