Deaf Women of Faith Outreach Conference
Feb
1
to Feb 4

Deaf Women of Faith Outreach Conference

Don’t throw your pearls to pigs because pigs don’t appreciate pearls. There are others who don’t appreciate what Christ has done for them, but there are also others that are grateful for all that Jesus has done. We, as women, must move forward and onward to share the good news; we are not responsible for people’s response to the good news. Don‘t force yourself in preaching the value of pearls to swine. There are others who need to hear the gospel. Only .02% of the Deaf population knows Jesus. Together, at this conference, we can gather together and shine as the precious jewels God meant for us to be.

Medical Interpreting: How can I interpret that?

  • Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Cary (map)

Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It's amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate. My workshop offers a myriad of ways to make interpreting more visual.
