Introduction / History

Father Frantisek Bartos started the Christian Center of Deaf in Banska Bystra Slovakia. He has worked tirelessly on behalf of the Deaf though out all of Slovakia and has even started a publication called KCNS. He has started interpreter-training programs to train more interpreters for the Deaf in Slovakia. There are at least two residential schools for Deaf orphans in Slovakia under this pastor's auspices. Within this past year IMB started teaching Chronological Bible Storying to Deaf which has been very well received. Some of the vocational training available to Deaf includes glass making, cooking, key making, painting, sewing and wood working. Many Deaf struggle with learning the national language of Slovak as verbal languages are often a second language for most Deaf and many are only functionally literate. Even though Czech Republic and Slovakia were one country in the past there is only about a 50% similarity of signs and they most likely will need a separate video translation of the scriptures.
