Cornerstone School for the Deaf

This story began in 2002, when Carol, CBDA’s administrator, met three unschooled deaf youth who came to CBC to attend church in 2002. They have since remained and became its faithful members. These deaf students were Jeremiah Halili from downtown Bamban, Wilson Maninang from Pag-asa, and Arnel Salting from Pandan. Jeremiah was only 22, Wilson was 25 and Arnel 29. Jeremiah and Arnel came from good families in their communities while Wilson came from a struggling household. Nevertheless, all three have never tasted “schooling” in all their life until 2005. The three became pioneers of CBC mission church and, after three years of faithful service to the Lord and to the mission work, became CBDA’s first pupils.
