The Sound in the Silence
The room was silent but for a few clicks of a keyboard and the occasional swish of clothing. No spoken words, but full of life.
It had been a while since I had been to Deaf church. Too long for me actually. My lack of exposure to ASL has lead my already struggling vocabulary to decrease. The people at Connecting Deaf church were more than gracious with my struggle to communicate.
The lack of spoken words didn't decrease the Spirit of God that was in that place.
I am not sure if you have experienced "knowing" someone was a Christian before they told you? My lack of ASL didn't decrease the fact that God was in that place today. It was wonderful to fellowship with other believers, to be encouraged in our journey back to Belize, and to work at my ASL.
Connecting Deaf is one of our sending churches, and a support in the Deaf community.
as a PS thanks to Greg Stemler for taking our younger two children to Hopewell for us :) I am sure it was an exciting day for him as well!
