Indonesia and Taiwan, APSDA effects

Thanks for praying. The plan writing group made good progress, and our work was approved by the APSDA leaders, Pastors Matsumoto and Minamida.

Great news from Indonesia. Their representative at the Asia Pacific Sign Language Development Association start-up meeting last November went back home with more than just the vision he had held for years already. He went home with a new awareness that an Indonesian Sign Language Bible was not just a dream, it could be a reality. Continued skype calls with Deaf leaders from Japan provided more encouragement.

Pray for the Indonesia project. Next week, their representative is convening a meeting of interested parties to chart the way forward. APSDA is not just growing as an organization, it is sparking new work in Asia!

And now news from Taiwan as well. Check out this story!
