This is the first time Deaf people in Honduras are seeing the Word of God directly,” said the project coordinator who is himself Deaf.
He was explaining the project to a hearing person. “It’s not through a second language like written Spanish, not through an interpreter, but directly from the Word of God in Honduran Sign Language,” he signed, as tears welled up in his eyes.
Now, the trial version of the very first Scripture passage, Genesis 1:1-2:3, is in the hands of Honduran Deaf Christian leaders who will share the publication with others!
It was a successful first year for the Honduran Sign Language project, in which two groups of translators are working on portions of Genesis and the Gospel of Luke.
