Blood Shed for Bloodshed

"Here in South Sudan, we have grown up divided. Most of us have seen our family members killed or maimed... [but] God's Word is teaching us that our past experiences do not have to hinder us." Picture what your life would be in a place you never felt safe.

Why are Deaf people groups among the last to receive God's Word?

How are spoken and signed languages different?

Communication is a basic human need. Language is the primary way to communicate, but its expression is different between the hearing and Deaf communities. Spoken languages are expressed through oral and aural means-spoken with the voice and heard by the ears. Signed languages are expressed gesturally and visually-signed by the hands and face and seen by the eyes.

The idea that there is a universal sign language is one of the biggest misconceptions about the Deaf population. In the same way that the world contains many spoken languages, there are many signed languages too. Equivalent to spoken languages, signed languages are naturally occurring in communities all over the world.

The Bible tells us that God has created each person unique with his or her own set of gifts. It is our decision to use those gifts or to neglect them. We are called to be good stewards of our time, of our money and our talents.
