Paul & Linda Fahnestock

Paul and Linda Fahnestock are members of a team dedicated to the translation of the first sign language Bible in Libras, Brazilian sign language, translated entirely by Deaf translators. They were invited to be members of the Deaf Owned Translation Brazil (DOT Brazil) coordination team in January 2019. DOT Brazil is a Brazilian organization with Brazilian leadership. Their involvement in missionary training, evangelism, church planting and Bible translation in Brazil since 1998, opened this ministry opportunity to the Fahnestocks . The Libras Bible will have a transforming impact on 2.6 million Deaf Brazilians of whom less than 2% know Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. Libras is one of two official languages of Brazil. The other official language is Portuguese.

Paul and Linda work virtually from their home office in Bonita Springs, Florida maintaining contact with the DOT Brazil coordination team and the Libras Bible translation teams. Their schedule includes two trips per year of 6-8 weeks in Brazil meeting with the coordination team, the Bible translation teams, and visiting supporting Brazilian churches and other potential partners in Brazil. The Fahnestocks also develop prayer and financial support for the project with churches and individuals in the USA.
