Have you ever waited for something for years and years?

That’s what it’s like for hundreds of Deaf communities around the world who are waiting for the Bible in a language and format they clearly understand!

American Sign Language (ASL) is the first sign language to get the whole Bible.* The Deaf community waited for 39 years for the full Bible to be translated into American Sign Language.

In this activity, learn the alphabet in ASL and remember to pray for sign language communities around the world to get God’s Word in a format they clearly understand.

*This is based on the translation standards established by the Forum of Bible Agencies International. The American Sign Language Bible was completed by Deaf Missions in collaboration with partners like American Bible Society, Seed Company, DOOR International, Deaf Bible Society, Pioneer Bible Translators and Wycliffe Bible Translators USA.
