Nora McNamara Missionary with Wycliffe Bible Translators

Many missionaries think it is too difficult, if not impossible, to learn a new language. I help missionaries learn a new language so that they can dig in and thrive in the culture they’re called to. I also teach people to share great stories from the Bible.

Why stories?

It is estimated that over 4 billion people in the world learn best through story, that’s over 50% of the world’s population! Who doesn’t like a good story? Stories slide right past arguments and resistance to the very good news. They get right to the heart, changing people from the inside out.



Which came first, Earth or the angels? Hear the answer in this story!

Why Stories?

Why are stories so powerful is a common question. Here’s why!


One of Nora’s very favorite stories to tell, a ton of foreshadowing!

God did not give me the talents to do the things that Nora can, but I know that Nora’s gifts and passions are essential to the global church.  What God did give me, was some money and the ability to pray, which I am happy to share and use to partner with Nora so that I can help make a difference to individual people who desire to know God and be united with Him in his kingdom.
