While students at Tennessee Temple University in the 1960 the Cabbages had a burden for the building of deaf ministries in the USA and in other countries. The
Cabbages graduated from Bible College and began starting deaf works in
churches in America. With the guidance of Dr. Bill Rice, Betty's Father,
they developed a system of two week sign language schools that would
help churches start ministries to deaf people in their community. After
they started deaf ministries in hundreds of churches in the USA
inquires began to come in from other countries about opening ministries
to the deaf community. First the Cabbages went
to Barbados in the West Indies to experiment with starting deaf works
internationally. Then opportunity arose in Mexico. After that Brazil.
Then in many countries around the world. The Cabbages have used Sign Language courses to start deaf works in the local national Ssgn language of the deaf in each respective country.
With the Society Teams we have have used Camping ministry to train deaf workers and reach deaf people for Christ. Several international School programs through the Society. Today the work continues to grow.
Building new deaf ministries in countries around the world is the main focus of this ministry. We need the help of Churches, Donors, and Grants to send teams to other countries to start new ministries. Can you help? It takes $20,000 for us to send a team to another country to learn the language, produce a sign language book for that country and train workers in that country to reach people of the deaf community for Christ.
You could be part of this unusual ministry. Could you give a special offering toward our starting new deaf ministries in The USA or in other countries?
