The Vatican requested 10 copies of our Gospel According to John books,  
written in ASL...

I print the books, one at a time here, and laminate the covers, and  
bind the books myself. At the time of the Vatican's request, I only  
had 9 copies to send, so I sent them 9 copies.

I am hoping that the 9 Gospel John books, in ASL, will arrive in time,  
and be distributed to participants at a conference being held at the  
Vatican, related to Deaf people in the Catholic Church, Nov  
19-21st...this week...

Conference at the Vatican: The Deaf Person in the Life of the Church

Maria Azzopardi Galea and Dr. Marie Alexander, from Malta, will be  
attending the conference at the Vatican. They will bring portions of  
the Bible written in Maltese Sign Language some of our ASL  
books...thank you for all you are doing in

So this will be an important conference, demonstrating that the Bible  
can be written in sign languages now...I am so curious to hear of the  
reaction from other participants...I can imagine this will be a new  
idea to them...

Val ;-)
