In 2007, in the Philippines, Wycliffe/SIL, YWAM, and the Bontoc Scripture Society shared a common passion to see the Word of God spread through three language groups in the Bontoc region of the Philippines.
OneStory created a plan to develop story sets in three languages. Various partners participated through training, providing workers, and technological skills. Within two years the story sets were completed, and many years later they are still being used throughout the Bontoc region to lead people to Christ and disciple believers.
Presently the OneStory Alliance includes seven main organizations who oversee global endeavors. These partners share expertise, planning, training, personnel, and funding at various levels in projects around the world.
