Ron - I know you want our help. I personally am not qualified to translate
anything into ASL. I have to transcribe the ASL from video, or ask signers
who know ASL to do the translations.

But there is a solution. You can transcribe videos that already exist.

Below is a list of Deaf ministries that have publications for the Deaf.
Several of them have already created their own ASL video translations of
portions of the Bible.

With their permission, you could transcribe their ASL videos of the Bible
into SignWriting. Then you will accomplish writing some of the Bible
without having to get the funding needed to hire a Deaf staff.

I might be able to acquire the written permission from these groups for
you, if you wish. But you would first need to talk with them to find out
which video you want to transcribe:
