Sign Language Class and More
It has been a while since I have posted, but I hope that there are still interested people who are passionate about knowing about and improving lives in the world. I have received news from David that the United Methodist University in Monrovia has decided to add a course for their students. They have decided to develop a course on the history of sign language, an introduction to sign as a language and some beginning signs. David and I are collaborating to see what should be included in the course.
Also, David has said that the University is going to admit the Hope teachers into their initial teacher training program. This will provide the teachers with invaluable training and experience that will greatly improve the Hope program and the students' future. Both plans are still in the beginning stages of preparation, but we are very hopeful for the future.
Currently, David, Jeff and other leaders in the Methodist church in Liberia are attending their Annual Conference. David and Jeff will present a report on the progress of their programs. It is our hope and prayer that their mission will continue to be heard, accepted, and supported.
