Not everyone realizes that sign language is made up of hundreds of languages. In fact, Deaf Bible Society and others estimate there to be over 400 unique sign languages worldwide. Deaf Bible has Scripture in 20 of those languages, making it possible to reach over 20 million of the 70 million deaf worldwide with the Gospel.

The most recent addition to the Deaf Bible app is Mexican Sign language. Deaf Bible, with the help of the Bible Society of Mexico, SIL International and the American Bible Society, now has five books translated, with plans to get five more books out next year.

Chantel Pagan of Deaf Bible says, “There are over [1,223,000] deaf people throughout this region. This deaf people group has so many people who are just waiting to hear the Good News of Jesus. And when I say hear, I mean in the sense that they are looking for a visual interpretation, a visual translation of Scripture.”

Deaf Bible wants to provide the complete Bible in their Mexican Sign language, and so they continue working on it.
