Ordering at a drive-thru can be a painful and even impossible experience for people in the deaf community, but one barista’s encounter is proof that we can do anything with technology and little love & care for our deaf friends:
If you liked that video, you’ll love what this other Starbucks barista did when she met a deaf customer:
When Sarah encountered a deaf woman at Starbucks, her heart broke at her own inability to communicate with the lady who was clearly lost on her verbal jargon. Sarah’s favorite part of being a barista was chatting with the customers and diving into the intricacies of their lives over the mixing of lattes.
The language barrier hit her like a brick wall—so she decided to do something about it.
From that moment on, she made it her mission to learn the beautiful art and culture of “sign” that so many in modern society have ignored as being a real language. God instilled a clear calling in Sarah to minister to the deaf community when He told her through a pastor’s message, “You are [My] hands.”
We don’t always take that literally, but Sarah did. And now she’s bringing His voice to the deaf community in a way that is certainly a sweet sound in His ears.
