“Eyes, hands, motion and rhythm — these are the basic elements of communication, language and art in the culture of Paraguay’s deaf community. Approximately 300,000 people make up this vital part of the society. The deaf who live in densely populated cities can attend special schools and churches. But those in rural areas don’t have these advantages and don’t learn sign language.
Regardless of location, all of Paraguay’s deaf struggle with feeling isolated and unimportant in a dominant hearing society. Yet a common zeal for knowledge and information shines in the faces of deaf people throughout the region.
The Seed Company will help nationals develop 40 chronological Bible stories. These stories will be the first literature in Paraguayan Sign Language, providing hope and guidance in life. And with sign language videos, including the “JESUS” film, the deaf community will evangelize their own culture.”
