Deaf People Hear the Gospel in South Asia

International Mission Board missionary Bethany meets regularly with a group of four Deaf friends from South Asia. These friends are Hindus and are eager to know more about the one true God.

Bethany (name changed for security) teaches the group Bible stories in sign language. Each night, Bethany and the group discuss a different story, and she has presented the Gospel multiple times. They’ve talked about baptism and discussed the story in Acts 2 where 3,000 people were baptized after they heard Peter’s address.

Bethany’s friends acknowledge that Jesus is good and that He heals, knows sign language, and helps His followers through the Holy Spirit. They all want to go to heaven, and they believe there is only one true God — a huge step for Hindus, who believe in many gods.

But they are not ready to follow Jesus.

Following means possibly being cut off from their families, cast out of the greater Deaf community, and denied opportunities like work and marriage.
