teaching the deaf to reach the deaf
In Guatemala, approximately one in every twenty people are deaf. The vast majority are undereducated, oppressed and undervalued. Most do not have a language and little means of communication. Guatemala Deaf Ministries is providing a sense of community through the many different activities happening each week. Nearly 50 deaf children are attending our school with classes for deaf adults as well. In the afternoons, eighteen students are learning vocational skills that will help them succeed in life. There are parent classes, community classes, a deaf fellowship every other Saturday, and church services on Sunday. Over 400 nutritious meals are served each month. The staff consists of both hearing and deaf, young people and adults. To learn more, click on the button below.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, school and church have been cancelled. We hope to resume soon. Our staff has been posting Bible teaching videos, handing out homework, and feeding the many families who are out of work with no means to buy food.
