Lutheran Friends of the Deaf (LFD) attended the National LCMS Convention in Tampa, Fla., this summer. There, LFD staff members spread the word about Deaf Ministry and teamed up Center for Hearing Health (CHH) who gave free hearing screenings and hearing aid cleanings to over 200 attendees with their Mobile Audiology Van.
During the convention, LFD also held the John of Beverley Award Dinner. This year, the award was presented to Grace Lam, Principal of Concordia School for Deaf Children in Macau, China, for her lifelong commitment to service among God’s people who are Deaf in this country and the world; for perseverance in her calling; for her far-reaching contributions rendered in Christian humility; for her servant leadership and her consistent desire that, in all things, Christ should have preeminence. Congratulations, Grace!
