Computing Hope for the Deaf Community in Nigeria

In this episode of “God on the Move,” Wuni Bitrus recounts how after meeting a young Deaf girl in his church, he felt that God was calling him to take action. Within two weeks, he learned sign language and served as her translator in church. It was the first time she heard about Jesus outside of her Muslim school. Drawing on his background in Computer Science, he began teaching her computing, leading to an increasing interest from the Deaf community to learn alongside him. This journey culminated in the creation of the Deaf Technology Foundation, dedicated to empowering the deaf community through innovative technology solutions and training. 

If you are a Christian seeking to discover stories of how God moves in different parts of the world, then this podcast is for you.
