Omega Training Partnership (OTP) produced a set of basic Bible stories in Nepali. There are 28 Old and New Testament stories and one “Creation to Church” overview story. The language and style of the stories is ideal for a Hindu context in Western Nepal. It’s simple enough for Nepali speakers elsewhere and language learners like me.

The audio files are available for download at the Orality Strategies website. Each story has a black and white watercolor painting in a Nepali village setting and an outline with questions on the opposite side. The Creation to Church story has a more detailed “handy guide.” There is also a Nepali transcript with English back-translation.
