Introduction / History

In Japan, the value placed on Sign Language has only lately been increasing. The older Deaf here are often separated from the younger Deaf.

Japanese Sign Language is used in secondary and high schools but not in primary schools.

Deaf schools are looked on as not being academic and so the younger Deaf have been going to hearing institutions. Many of them avoid joining Deaf groups and some are now going back to Deaf schools where they feel more at home.

Though the Japanese Deaf are reticent to show the inside of their homes, they regularly use video calls on their cameras to communicate with each other.


Prayer Points

* Pray for some of the teachers of the Deaf in Japan to be Christians and lead the Deaf here to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the Deaf are and feel valued in Japan and let them know that they are valued by Jesus Christ.
