Deaf communities in Angola and South Africa will soon have a chance to know Jesus.

“There are some strong Deaf leaders and Deaf believers” in South Africa, DOOR International’s Rob Myers says.

“Now that they have some Scripture published, that Scripture is a perfect segue into training local leaders in how to do evangelism, discipleship, and church planting.”

Published sign language Scripture and strong Deaf leadership are exceptions rather than the norm. Collectively, Deaf people are one of the world’s largest unreached people groups. Less than two percent of the world’s 70 million Deaf people have any access to the Gospel.
