VOF is busy in promoting the value of human life in biblical perspective Dear Pro-life friends and families, it is my great pleasure to update you the Pro-life activities done by VOF in last month. As I had shared you the prayer point to pray for my trip to some hilly and mountainous districts of Nepal, the trip and trainings went well. Thank you so much for your fervent prayer. Now, please enjoy the reports with photos below: Dhankuta is one of the hilly districts of Eastern Nepal. The head quarter of this district is Dhankuta Bazar, which is very beautiful. On 7th April, 2013 VOF conducted a Pro-life training of trainer (ToT) in Dhankuta Baptist Church with the active coordination of Christian Society. Despite of strike ‘Banda’ more than 80 participants from different churches, Bible schools, press and media were participated in the training. In whole training, Soman Elisha Rai presented the teaching on the humanity of unborn baby, abortion, its types, complications, alternatives and church response with different teaching materials. All the participants were touched and moved with the teachings. They were challenged to be an active Pro-life service provider or advocate for life in their locality. The Life saving bags (trainer bags) contain of Pro-life DVD, book and brochures were distributed to the participants. The event news was also broadcasted through two local radios (Makalu FM & Dhankuta FM) and published by weekly newspaper also. Shankhuwa-sava is one of the mountainous districts in East Nepal, where Mt. Makalu is situated. This district is famous for trekking and China market in boarder. Khandabari is the head quarter of Shankhuwa-sava. According to Shankhuwa-sava times (an online news) the abortion industry is alive in Khandbari. Non-listed service providers are active in that job. There are very few churches and Christians. So, on 9th April 2013 VOF conducted one day training in Believers Church, Khandbari on the topic called ‘Abortion Free Society’ with the active involvement of the local churches and communities. More than 50 participants were participated in the training. Some of the participants were non-Christian also. And they were there for the first time in church, coming and learning together with Christian like that. They shared their wonderful experience and feedbacks of the training. One of the ladies shared that the kind of program should be conducted in an open place where all people can have awareness. We had some mother participants too coming from long distance by walking and carrying their baby in bamboo basket. We amazed looking their active participation and interest in teaching. Some college students were also there, who made notable questions to resource person, which he had not expected from them. After the training one pastor came and offered to VOF one thousand rupees and said that he will pray for VOF and the ministry. What a kind heart!
