Bringing the Bible to the Deaf in Vietnam.
“I thought the Bible was too hard for a deaf person like me . . .”
There are more than 1 million people in Vietnam who are deaf. The majority of these people are ostracized from society and were never taught to read. They have been denied not only educational opportunities, but also the chance to know their Creator through the Bible.
Too often, our hearing-impaired brothers and sisters in Christ tell us how difficult it is for them to understand written Bibles.
Hanh*, who was born deaf, shares how this struggle makes it difficult to have a personal relationship with God. “When I read the Bible, I couldn’t understand anything,” she says. “I thought the Bible was too hard for a deaf person like me who had only studied to eighth grade.”
But thanks to the efforts of American Bible Society friends like you, we have made new and exciting ways for the Deaf Vietnamese community to have the Word of God in their heart language.
After many years of dedicated work, video translations of Scripture portions and Bible stories in Hanoi Sign Language are freely available through our YouTube channel and the Deaf Bible Society mobile app.
“We are grateful for Bible Society partners like you who continue to invest in these important projects to bring God’s Word where it is needed most,” says Dr. Vu Le, Executive Director of the Bible Society of Vietnam.
