[English Translation]

Hello, my name is Jocephyne (sign name: JO) and I am from Malaysia. I am one of the board members of Malaysian Sign Language Bible Translation (MySLBT) and serve as Vice Chairman.

Our group has been translating CBS stories and 9 stories have been approved. We need to continue to work on the rest of the stories. We pray that partner organizations and other churches will continue to support us. We pray that more people will support us financially as well as join us in our work. God Bless!
