SWM International Missionary (Romania)
Bio: Nicole Condra is a second-generation missionary to the deaf. She grew up knowing sign language and working with deaf people alongside her parents, Reed and Donna Condra. When once asked about her specific call into deaf missions, Nicole thought and replied, “I don’t ever remember a time when God called me out of deaf missions.”In 2004, she was asked by leaders of Silent Word Ministries to serve as a home-office missionary. This she did for 6 years. Nicole resigned her office responsibilities in 2011 and focused on further training to prepare her for the foreign field.
Besides growing up on a foreign field and her time in stateside ministry, Nicole has also traveled alone throughout Romania. There she located deaf people and introduced deaf ministry to churches, national pastors, and missionaries. In Romania, she received a deeper and abiding desire to be back “foreign” permanently. It is Nicole’s desire to facilitate deaf ministries on many mission fields where, even till now, there are none.

Bruce & Amanda Stuart
SWM International Missionaries (Gabon, Africa)
Bruce and Amanda Stuart were raised in Christian homes, Amanda in Torrington, Connecticut and Bruce in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Both received the Lord at an early age. After a time of struggling with doubt as she grew older, Amanda received assurance at the age of 11.
During a missions conference with Dr. James Ray of BIMI, God called Bruce to serve in the country of Gabon, Africa. He studied ASL (American Sign Language) in college. After a discussion with Missionary Eric Baughman also with BIMI, Bruce fought with God before finally surrendering to full-time ministry among the Deaf, specifically in Gabon, Africa. His burden is for the Deaf to know God in a personal way and desires to serve God in Africa to this end.
