Deaf Convention

The National Christian Convention of the Deaf was a great time! I had the privilege of attending this conference with a young lady from my church who is learning sign language. It is quite an experience to be in a room of so many deaf people and be in the hearing minority! I had a couple of headaches over the weekend from the eyestrain! But it was incredible to communicate with new and old friends. Seeing several friends from Cincinnati brought me back to when I was just learning sign language. The journey that God has brought me on has been incredible, and I can't wait to go to next year's conference in Jacksonville, Florida.

One of the best things about the conference was the decision of two deaf men to be baptized and become Christians! How cool!

Another best thing was spending time with Shelina and her daughter. They graciously opened their home to my friend and me. It was great sitting up and talking late like we used to do in college together. I miss spending time with Shelina, so it was cool to see her, Sushi, and the quilts live!
