Trip Dates:  August 2019

World Impact: World Impact ministry, whether it occurs locally, regionally, nationally or internationally, is a tremendously rewarding way to extend God’s grace as we place others ahead of ourselves, and serve the Kingdom with a more global perspective.

Team Goals: This team is open to the Deaf Community at Salem Alliance Church, deaf people and interpreters who have experience working with deaf students. The team has been requested by Esther Schaeffer, C&MA missionary. This is a follow-up team after previous deaf teams from Salem Alliance who have worked with local Deaf School, National Church and Bible Schools, as well as citywide deaf organizations.  We will be working directly with deaf students and hearing teachers using a Vacation Bible School (VBS) format. We desire to include and train local deaf Burkinabè to use the methods we will share, so that they can continue using these tools with the local deaf community.
