Global Woman Highlight | Sarah Deal

My name is Sarah Deal. My husband’s name is Shad and we have two boys, Braden (6) and Brice (3). We have been serving with New Tribes Mission since 2005 (overseas since 2007).

We minister in the Asia Pacific region. Our family ministers to new cross-cultural workers by orientating them to our field and helping to equip them for future service cross-culturally. I serve as a National Language Consultant and my husband serves in finding and keeping up housing for our new cross-cultural workers. We both serve as coaches, coming alongside new cross-cultural workers to help them through the realities of culture shock and adjusting to their new lives in cross-cultural ministry.

We appreciate your prayers for balance in the many facets of our ministry. We desire to disciple national believers, be a light to those who have yet to believe, as well as minister to our fellow cross-cultural workers here. We also desire to grow as a family ever closer to our Savior and raise our boys to know and walk with Him. As a mother of young children as well as a cross-cultural worker with an often “full-time” ministry, I often feel the strain of knowing how to spend my hours. Please pray that I would cling to Psalm 16:11—HE will show me the path of life, in HIS presence is joy!!

About the author

I am Sarah, wife to the most amazing husband ever, mother to two sweet boys, and beloved daughter of the King of Kings. Our family serves with New Tribes Mission on the most populated island in the world in the region of Asia Pacific. Our focus is equipping new cross-cultural ministers for full, effective, and lifelong ministries among unreached people groups. I enjoy connecting with women and reminding them (and myself!) that we are never alone… we all struggle in this journey of faith and we were meant to encourage each other along the way!! Most importantly, God is on our side--fighting for us and ever drawing us closer to Him!!
