Voice of Fetus, Nepal Raising voice for LIFE
Caring mothers, saving babies and stopping abortion
Breaking the silence of churches in Nepal I am typing this greetings with my own fingers hoping that you are living your life beautifully and happily. And I believe that you have been praying and raising your voice for the lives in risk in your daily prayer and living. Last week I received an email and attachment of a horrific picture of India. It was written like this ’India is # 1 in killing of female unborn baby’. While viewing that picture I remembered Mr. Amir Khan of ‘Satye me jaytein’ Indian TV show, who had
presented the real picture of India regarding sex selective abortion through that TV show. He had just made huge different throughout the India with that single TV show.
When the presentation was finished the seminar took a lunch break. After having delicious lunch, Elisha Soman informed the participants about the potential Pro-life programs and activities run through local churches and future partnership with VOF. Many pastors and leaders were very excited and
Today, lets put these questions mark unto you and me that what is the position of Nepal in the case of killing of unborn babies? And who is responding and addressing this issue in Nepal? And why churches in Nepal are cross armed and silent?
shared their heart to do something very soon. Some pastors even confessed that they were silent or wordless when their believers came to them with the issue of crisis pregnancy. That day, they repented and decided to speak and stand for life. The moment was really blessed. Thank God.
God says, “if they keep quite, the stone will cry out.” We can find another tragic example in Bible itself that when God’s prophet missed to raise his voice a donkey was compelled to speak. Today, stone and donkey may not speak but people like Amir Khan will speak definitely. As it is written in Bible, ’for if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise from another place (person)...” (Source: Luke: 19:40, Esther 3:14)
VOF Nepal’s Recent Pro-life Activities On 10th June, 2012 VOF conducted a Vision Building Seminar in Punarabas, kanchanpur Far-west Nepal even in the hottest day of 44 degree C. Punarabas is a Christian mission field where we can find many churches, big school and medical clinics run by Churches and Christian organizations. There is the majority of Tamang and Chaudari people group. It is the border area to India and Nepal. We came to know from the Christian Society of Kanchanpur that Punarabas is a place where maximum abortions happen, even inside the Christian community, so they decided to keep this seminar in Punarabas. More than 90 Pastors, woman and youth leaders and interested individuals from different churches and organizations were participated in that seminar. The seminar was started with an opening prayer by Ps. Ram Bahadur Bista the chairperson of Kanchanpur Christian Society, then the remaining time of seminar were handed over to Soman Elisha Rai the Executive Director and Resource Person of VOF Nepal.
