Translating Scripture into the language of the Deaf in Colombia
Colombian Sign Language
We are partnering with a local team to translate Scripture portions into Colombian Sign Language!
Because sign language translations are three-dimensional, they aren’t written — they are produced as videos. The team must film the person signing the translated Scripture, then check, edit and revise the recordings, and finally publish them.
During this project, the team will translate the Gospel of Mark 1-8, Acts 13-28, 1 Corinthians 7-11 and portions of Genesis. In addition, some previously translated passages from Genesis are being updated.
Another component of this project includes DVDs based on themes that are important for personal development and Christian growth.
“With God’s help and guidance we know that the Deaf community of Colombia will be greatly blessed by the translation work,” said a Colombian Sign Language team member.
Your prayers and investment will help make God’s Word available in Colombian Sign Language!
Funds in excess of the current need will be applied to a similar project or to future needs within the same project.
