From Collins Prempeh: The Deaf congregation from Sefwi Wiawso, Ghana is delighted to receive the compact projector donated by Lovers Lane United Methodist Church.
We thank you and God bless you.
(The Lovers Lane Deaf Fellowship bought and sent a compact video projector to the Methodist Deaf church in Sefwi Wiaso, Ghana. They needed a compact video projector to show translations of the bible in Ghanaian sign language. A couple of years ago, Collins Prempeh helped start this Deaf church as part of the Methodist Church of Ghana. The video projector was delivered by a missionary of the Deaf, Jason Hopkins, who is a sign language translation consultant for Wycliffe Bible translators. Jason had been in the USA when he and Tom Hudspeth were corresponding about Jason's return to Ghana and delivering the projector to Collins. Jason and Collins had been part of a Ghanaian sign language translation team for DOOR in Nairobi, Kenya where they worked as a team to translate New Testament stories into GSL versions on video. Tom Hudspeth met Collins for the first time during the 3rd Global Methodist Missions conference of the Deaf in Nairobi, Kenya in 2013.)
