SWMI, in partnership with national missionaries with International Partnership Ministries (IPM), is focusing on deaf ministries in northern Liberia. In cooperation with the Great Commission Fundamental Baptist Church (GCFBC) in Ganta City, we have already helped to start a deaf ministry and are helping strengthen a new deaf school. We found that 95% of the deaf population in this region have no sign language or education.The government has no national deaf school. Sign language is used by a minority of the deaf, mainly in the capital city. In order to get the Gospel of Jesus Christ to these deaf people quickly, it is necessary to teach them sign language and to educate them so they can read and write. The GCFBC has started this school, but buildings are desperately needed.
