Kenya (Mission Network News) — In some rural areas of Kenya, having a deaf child can be seen as a blight on the family. But that is completely the opposite of how God sees them.
“Deaf people are hidden in the rural areas. People think it’s a spiritual representation of their home that they have been ‘cursed’ with a deaf child, and that’s the way they think. So in order to have good standing spiritually, they’ll hide those deaf children,” explains Deaf Bible Society’s JR Bucklew.
Deaf Bible Society seeks to share God’s love and message of salvation with deaf individuals all around the world. They have sign language Bibles available on the Deaf Bible app and on their website, deaf.Bible.
