BLENDED BRIDGES WAS AWESOME!
"Wow, what an incredible month July has been! We may be exhausted, but every bit of effort was worth it. During our Blended Bridges ASL Immersion Camp this year, we had 25 students (Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, and Hearing siblings) who attended to improve their signing skills. We taught American Sign Language through games, art, fun activities, field trips, Bible studies, and more! The kids had a great time and were sad when it was over... we were, too! By the end of camp, we saw signing abilities improved in the students by 20% all the way up to 60%! What a blessing it is for these blended families to be able to communicate with each other!
One of my favorite moments from camp was witnessing one of our Hard-of-Hearing students (who was a non-signer when he first started coming) signing full sentences to his hearing parents on family night as they watched in utter amazement! It blessed my heart not only that he was able to sign so well, but that he was proud of this language he learned! Sign language gives Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people equal access to communication, which is so vital.
Thank you to everyone who was involved with Bridges, from volunteers to clean up crews to financial supporters. You made a huge impact in these families’ lives and shared the love of Christ in a mighty way!"
