Doors Closing?

It’s happening right now! There’s a meeting in Korea among Deaf people that will determine a lot about the future of Sign Language Bible translation there, and also affects our efforts at training translation consultants. It sounds very complicated, but the bottom line is, there are two groups who want to do SL Bible translation, but they cannot meet together in the same room. We had hoped to train Deaf translation consultants there, giving them a chance to train translators and check some translation work that has recently been done, but this could scuttle (or at least change) the plans. Pray that the Spirit of God will provide a way through the impasse.
