Word By Heart, the fastest growing school in YWAM, is training story tellers- bringing the words of Jesus to life by bridging cultures and languages. The stories will become so real to you that you will be an eyewitness. Once you have experienced the Gospel‘s like this, natural memory is unlocked and you will be able to share a Gospel book word for word in just three months.
Act like eyewitnesses to Jesus’ story, the greatest story ever told. Word By Heart helps you know Jesus personally and share him in an unique way by using the exact words of the Gospels. You’ll experience Him through your own imagination… as if you literally walked with him and saw the withered hand made whole.
Engaging with Jesus in this way will change you. Jesus lived the most impacting life ever lived. As you draw close to him, he will start to transform you. You will experience a surge of energy for him that will empower you to spread his good news everywhere.

Padam and Prabina Subedi
My name is Prabina Subedi, and I grew up in New Hampshire, USA. During my DTS I felt called to serve in missions full-time. I then did my SBS and upon completion I flew on a one-way ticket to Nepal where I’ve lived and served for the past 17 years, all with YWAM. My husband, Padam is from Nepal and grew up in a Hindu family. He heard the Good News of Jesus for the first time when he was 20 years old and made the radical decision to follow him- even though that risked him being rejected from his own people. Upon completion of his DTS he joined YWAM and has been serving in YWAM Nepal for the past 22 years. We were married in Nepal and soon afterwards adopted our first 2 children when they were 8 and 12 years old… who are now 19 and 23. We also have 4 younger children, ages: 10, 8, 5 and 3.
We began our journey with Word by Heart in July, 2016, and we were amazed at how it transformed our family, and the way that we do ministry. Padam learned the gospel of Mark, and then I, along with our 10 year old daughter learned the gospel of Luke. Our 8 year old has also learned about 10 minutes of stories and is working on learning more. We brought this school back to Nepal and pioneered the first school in Nepal with 16 students, in 6 different languages. Our oldest son (23) also took the school there. Since the school in Nepal, we have pioneered the Word by Heart school in Cambodia, Philippines and Worcester, S. Africa.
It has been such a joy and privilege for our family to be a part of this ministry, and to witness the power of the Word of God again and again. Our kids are just as involved in Word by Heart as we are… and they are leading the way with excitement as they experience the gospel in different languages and cultures throughout the world!
