About this Unit:

Non-Deaf missionaries from the United States worked with Deaf members to establish a Deaf group and create an LSV (Lengua de Señas Venezolana) Church lexicon in the early 2000s. Missionary visas were suspended in 2005 and non-native missionaries were reassigned to other missions. Nothing more is known about missionary work among the Deaf or of any Deaf units in the country.

About this Unit:

Brother Ramesh Babu, a deaf member of the Bangalore Second Branch, says that hearing members 'have a good relationship with us as brothers and sisters in the gospel, and they involve us in each and every activity. They help us to grow in the gospel'....Dominique Michael and others in the Bangalore Second Branch learned sign language so they could interpret for deaf members." (Marlene Bateman Sullivan, "Hearing with the Heart," Ensign, Aug. 2006, 56)
