USA – As many as 40,000 college students in USA have banded together and raised $448,270 (approximately 1.6 billion shillings) for the Deaf Bible Society, which funds and distributes Bible content to deaf communities in Uganda among several other countries around the world.

Just recently, Deaf Bible Society reported that Uganda has as estimated 375,800 signers, adding that active distribution efforts are underway for the already existing sign languages bible connect.

In partnership with Door International, Deaf Bible Society however noted that there is additional translation work that is stalled, awaiting funding.

Brad Jones, global ambassador for Passion 2019 conferences in Dallas, Texas, told Fox News that thousands of young people, ages 18 to 25, gathered for three days in four different locations not-only for teaching and worship, but also help raise money to reach nations and people that have never heard the gospel before. 

Through the funds, Brad Jones told Fox News partner organizations will translate the stories of Jesus from the New Testament into the unique sign languages.

Other countries that will benefit from the funding are Mexico, Cuba, Colombia, Moldova, Egypt, Ghana, South Africa, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Japan and Russia.

“During Passion 2019, 40,000 college students and leaders gathered under one name—the name of Jesus. Passion is more than an event; we exist to see this generation live for what matters most—for us, that’s the fame of Jesus.” Brad Jones said.

 The Passion Conference began January 2 and ended on January 4, 2019.
