Me as a sign language specialist

My desire is that deaf people will get the opportunity to discover what’s written in the Bible, in the language which speaks to their hearts. I made myself available for the Global Sign Language Team (GSLT) for the coming five years. I will work with them through the organization Wycliffe Bible Translators The Netherlands, and will be sent by Hope Church Utrecht.

For this work I am fully dependent on financial donations of the people supporting me. Go to the what can you do-page for more information.
