Book of Mormon Available in American Sign Language
The following letter, dated May 10 and signed by members of the First Presidency, has been sent to Church leaders throughout the United States and Canada.
“We are pleased to announce the Book of Mormon in American Sign Language. Copies are available on videotapes from the Salt Lake Distribution Center and may be ordered through your ward or branch leaders. Two of the projected eleven videotapes are available at this time. These two videotapes cover the introduction and 1 Nephi 1–22. Notices will be sent as each of the remaining videotapes becomes available.
“We encourage members who will benefit from the use of the American Sign Language videotapes of the Book of Mormon to obtain their copies of the scriptures and to use them in regular personal and family study and in Church meetings and assignments as appropriate. As members prayerfully learn and teach from the scriptures, their testimonies will grow, their knowledge will increase, their love of family and others will expand, their ability to serve others will enlarge, and they will receive greater strength to resist temptation and defend truth and righteousness.”
