Subject: Re: Hello
An elder in our church and myself are working on transcribing the book of
James. It's been slow going as we are also working to learn SW itself as
well. Also, this elder has a job that requires him to travel often so we
aren't able to work on it as often as I had hoped.
At this point, Deaf Missions considers SW irrelevant and unnecessary and
something that the deaf community in general would not be interested in. I
am hoping they will change their minds, especially after we get a
transcription done. They do verse by verse, but they may not mark it on
the videotape quite so clearly.
