David and Vicki Bennett were first appointed as missionaries to the country of Brazil in 1979. Along with their family, they served the Lord faithfully in Brazil for twenty-five years.
In 2004, David and Vicki joined Silent Word Ministries and opened up an international department with the goal of reaching more Deaf for Christ around the world. David speaks in missions conferences in churches and colleges, challenging young and old alike with the need of missions, and specifically with the need to reach the Deaf internationally.
David travels to foreign countries, surveying them for Deaf ministry. He seeks new missionaries in the USA for these foreign fields where the needs are greatest. Also, he challenges many nationals to fulfill the Great Commission by also reaching out to the Deaf both in their own country and surrounding countries.
