Dear list members,
I leave tomorrow to the Vatican- no today because it's fifteen past
midnight here, and I have to be up at 5am! Very excited, and a little
anxious about leaving the kids behind for the first time.
Stefan, it would be a great idea to show the Lord's Prayer in written
German Sign Language onlyI'm not sure there is time! Perhaps you could
send it via email?

The Gospel of John in ASL in print form is a really beautiful piece of
work! I simply love it. Well done to everyone on the team.

anyway, we will keep you posted...

Maria
