For some deaf recipients of cochlear implants, it can take up to 10 years to learn to distinguish sounds and to speak. But for Emily Thomas, from Oklahoma, it was a miraculously short period of less than two years — years that coincided with her finding the gospel and deciding that God’s gift of words to her was a sacred trust.
In this audio interview with Thomas, a professional counselor who has been deaf since birth, you’ll learn three things deaf church members wish hearing members understood about them, hear a remarkable story of the gospel of Jesus Christ bringing a family together after a decade and generally bask in the glow of someone full of the light of the Lord.
That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
