After completing the DVD marriage series, “Developing Closeness on the Journey of a Lifetime” by Dr. Peck, there was an instant request from the BCP Deaf Ministry to have this resource translated for the Deafcommunity. The Deaf ministry provided an interpreter and we spent two days recording all the sessions in sign languageusing our new video/photo studio. These resources will help the Deaf community with a quality resource to encourage couples. There currently are not many resources like this for the growing Deafministry.

One of the objectives in going to India was to help our partners with some technology tools for ministry. I brought a laptop to use during the conference, with the intension to give it away after the conference to one of our Indian partners. All during the week I was praying that I would be able to discern who would be the best individual to use this laptop most effectively for ministry. Several days into the conference I met Lhunsei Kipgen from Manipur state of India. He was sharing his ministry report and I was immediately convinced that he was the one to give the laptop to.
I will summarize his work, but then you can hear from him in his own words. He works among native Manipur tribal people and they do not speak English. While helping with church planting he has understands the need to get discipleship and study tools in their native language. He started translating a book with permission, and hand wrote the entire book and borrowed a computer (much older system) to type all the writings in, and halfway into the book the computer crashed and he lost it all. He has finally completed the first book and has hand written two more to be typed and printed up to help the growing church there in Manipur.
