Until now the deaf in the rural villages had to wait a whole month before receiving the Word of God in their (sign) language. They waited anxiously for the next time that Signs of Love visited their village, gathered the deaf together and taught the Bible stories.
There were no times along with the Word at their finger tips soaking in every word as they turned the pages of the living Book. There were no weekly bible studies where they gather together to learn together. No index searches for what God had to say about a particular subject they were struggling with. That isn’t to say that God wasn’t speaking to the deaf here in Honduras, He absolutely was through the whispers of the Holy Spirit in their hearts. I oftentimes think we forget how luck we are to be able to read the Word on our own!
Now many of the deaf can walk to the locally owned mini-mart or their aunts house and pop in the DVD and see God’s Word come to life in LESHO (Honduran Signs Language) as studied and told by a Deaf Honduran woman.
Thank you for those of you that financially supported this project and prayed for us throughout the filming!
Please pray that the Word of God would take root deep in the hearts and minds of the Deaf of Honduras because we know that His Word does not return void!
