Deaf Bible Society
annual report
April 1, 2017 - March 31, 2018
Since Deaf Bible Society began, our mission has been that every Deaf person would be able to receive God's Word in their sign language.
As we look back, we have seen many successes and this is all possible because of your partnership with us.
As you look through this report, please enjoy seeing the many things that have happened this past year. Thank you!
