Joe and Lisa Kotvas, missionaries to the deaf and hearing of Peru, South America

In 1998, God impressed upon the heart of an assistant pastor and deputy sheriff in Fort Myers, Florida, the great need for help in a deaf ministry in Peru, South America. Joe Kotvas answered God’s call, and for over twenty years, the Kotvas family has been leading Efata Ministries, a special ministry focused on reaching the deaf and hearing in Lima, Peru, and beyond.
