Mexico – As part of ongoing efforts by the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Mexico to better reach the hearing impaired in their churches and communities, a group of Adventist interpreters gathered recently for a special training workshop in Villahermosa, Tabasco.

The 47 student interpreters from across three major church regions in Mexico met to enrich their knowledge, understand their mission, and strategize to further the ministry of sharing the gospel in sign language to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The training workshop is the second such initiative in a comprehensive special needs ministry effort begun by the North Mexican Union seven years ago, organizers said.

This year, the church in the Southeast and Inter-Oceanic Mexican Unions gathered a group of their own for the Second Annual Interpreters Workshop in Mexican Sign Language, which provided 50 hours of training, July 22-27, 2019, at the 27 de Febrero Adventist Church in Villahermosa.
