In January of 2013, Deaf Filipino Leaders met and discussed ministering to the Deaf in the Philippines. At that time, they realized that it is necessary for them to have God's Word in their own language, Filipino Sign Language. As these leaders met with other Deaf Leaders and churches, many individuals and organizations united under the vision to reach all the Deaf in the Philippines with God's Word in their heart language.
