Become an Ally in Hope
July 7-20, 2015 - Deaf Team
Come and work with a truly unreached people group - deaf women in Sierra Leone. Women of Hope serves approximately 25-30 deaf women who have very limited communication capacity. The purpose of this team is to:
- Articulate the Gospel to women who have limited communication skills in a way they can understand
- Teach our Sierra Leonean staff sign language through immersion
- Facilitate discussion between the deaf women we serve and our staff to create a plan for future involvement and training for the deaf
- Work with the mothers of deaf children to facilitate better communication between the children and their parents and assist the parents in seeing their children through a Biblical lens

Why ask for support from others?
Please remember that this trip is not about you - and it's not even about you going to Africa to serve women with disabilities. It is about obeying the Great Commission, which is the responsibility of every Christian. Your job is to call people into greater obedience to the Great Commission and join you as a team effort in bringing the Gospel to bear in the lives of these precious women. Not everyone can get on a plane to Africa, but everyone can be part of building the Kingdom there through you as their ambassador!
