A basic sign language online seminar conducted on August 15, 2021, brought together the Binhi members from the Ecclesiastical District of Northern Europe.
The webinar sought to help the youth members begin communicating properly with the deaf, ultimately for the benefit of the differently-able persons, especially the brethren.
“I felt really excited because I get to spend time with all the Binhi members, and I also get to learn something new with them,” said Angela Therize Yangat, a Binhi Officer from the Local Congregation of Stavanger, Norway. “It is important for us to learn sign language because we also have to communicate with deaf people.”
The attendees learned Sign Language basics including alphabets, numbers, names, and as well as simple phrases such as those used in everyday greetings.
“For me, an activity such as this was very special, meaningful, and fun. Meeting the brethren, continue to enhance, get better at, and learned new things make it a lot special,” said Ashton Caraan, the Binhi President from the Local Congregation of Goteborg, Sweden.
“It is important to have knowledge on Sign Language because we can communicate to the deaf community. We can help edify our brethren and share our faith to nonmembers, as well,” said Febe Ann Castro, a Binhi district officer from the Local Congregation of Larvik, Norway. ― With reports from INC News Section
