Live Your Passion | Sign Team - Apostolic Pentecostal Church of the Living God

Imagine you are in a room full of people, and everyone is talking with one another, but you hear nothing but silence. That is the struggle deaf people face every day.

The National Center for Health Statistics estimates that 28 million Americans (about 10 percent of the population) have some degree of hearing loss. About 2 million of these 28 million people are classified as deaf, meaning they can’t hear every day sounds or speech, even with a hearing aid. Only about 10 percent of these 2 million people were born deaf. The other 90 percent became deaf later in life.
