Over 1,000 Deaf Jehovah’s Witnesses Meet In Benin City For 2013 ASL Convention


A  convention for the deaf holds in Benin City

Two of the three auditoriums were packed with people numbering over

It was neither a social gathering nor a
political rally. Rather, it was an assembly of people who speak a
language that you can not hear, but one that you can see.

The only sound heard was the chirping of birds. It could best be

a gentle breeze would sway leaves, in response to talks delivered from
the platform.
