We have decided at this time to postpone the May OneStory training in Holland, Mi. It is our hope to reschedule for July, a decision we will make by early May. Many factors are involved in this decision, the foremost being the hosting by a church facility of people coming from unknown locations and the unknown course of impact of the COVID-19 virus at this time. It is our prayer that any difficulties with booked travel can be mitigated for the few who have already made their travel plans. We will continue to keep you updated as we make decisions going forward, and will make more posts on the OneStory website. Sincerely, Debbie and Nora

A pair of trainings has been announced in Holland, Michigan USA (in the Grand Rapids area).

Helo, I’m very interested to join the Oral translation training, I’m working at the field of Storyteller of the Gospel more than 5 years. My husband and I have been training youth people technique to make memories of the Gospel. I’m doing my MA in linguistic as Consultant translator, but for years I have been working more toward of Oral translation. So, I’m looking for more direct skill in the area that I’m working with. please let me know when will be the next workshop or school. I’m looking forward to hear from you.
