David M. Harrison, director of Let My People Hear, is inviting hard of hearing and late-deafened people to the Hear Now Coffee Hour. He will be starting a series of lectures entitled: “Twenty-one ways to communicate without a hearing aid” based on his latest book, “The Bill Of Rights for Hard of Hearing.”
The Hear Now Coffee Hour will offer help to those who are seeking solutions for better communication skills. This is a unique meeting for people who struggle with hearing loss.
The meetings are held every Saturday at 8 a.m. in the fellowship hall in the back of Ponders Funeral Home, 4203 Brainerd Road. This building is wheelchair accessible and is equipped with listening units for hearing accessibility.
Hearing loss is the largest disabled group of people in America. Fifty million Americans suffer hearing loss, including 72,000 in Hamilton County. More than 49 percent of veterans returning from war suffer from hearing loss. More than 75 percent of veterans suffer from tinnitus. Half of all seniors over 65 are hearing disabled.
Mr. Harrison, an ordained missionary, is profoundly hard of hearing. He has struggled to hear all his life. His mission is to liberate hurting people with hearing loss from the prison of silence and the grip of discrimination to freedom of communication.
He said that God can do more in a moment of earnest prayer than any man could ever do in a lifetime. The Hear Now Coffee Hour may be the very miracle that the hard of hearing are waiting for. There is great hope for those who desire to improve hearing and meet others who others dealing with hearing loss.
This event is free. Veterans and families are invited. Contact Mr. Harrison at 624-1669 or firstname.lastname@example.org
