Can You Hear Us?
Can You Hear Us? is a compact quick reference guide to Deaf ministry loaded with amazing tidbits, myth-busters, surprising statistics, some how-to’s and heart-warming stories.
This booklet was penned by Esther M. Doss, a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults). Growing up in the Deaf-World, she knows well the struggles Deaf people have in their spiritual journeys. “Deaf ministry is not left only to those who know American Sign Language,” Doss explains. “Deaf ministry is not simply an interpreted service. It’s much more than that! The most important element of ministering to Deaf people is friendship. Even if you don’t know how to sign, you can still be a friend.”
