The class:
Was a Christian Elementary School. K-6 (300-400 students)
I had printed and made copies for all the children of their devotions for
the morning. (Galatians 6:9) I wrote the verses in SW with English
captions underneath. After passing out copies I explained a few SW rules
regarding the 6 possible positions of the hand. SW is very easy to learn
to read. The wonderful thing is that the children remembered all day what
was taught because I saw some of the children in the hearing church near
our Deaf church and they were excited to show me what they had
I am hoping the principal will ask me more about. I have ulterior
motives of building a team of Bible translators. I know it is a big
dream, but I don't live in the past, but in the possibilities.
