VOFs 5th General assemblys glimpse
Raising voice for the voiceless
Voice of Fetus, Nepal
Dear Pro-life friend and families The mission of VOF, Nepal is to strengthen & promote the value and dignity of unborn baby in a
mothers womb. VOF, Nepal also seriously prioritizes women in crisis-pregnancy rather than overlook their problem. It assumes that abortion can never be a genuine solution. Rather, it believes befriending, listening, loving and helping are all critical in the vulner-able state of these individuals in a time of crisis. VOF believes that it is very essential to make public the harsh truth about abortion and its possible complications to the issue related to a mother's physical, mental, spiritual wellbeing, and the implications for the family. VOF is mindful of the necessity of dealing with post-abortive mother and the family often devastated by the trauma related to abortion. Please join us for His service! Thank you. Soman Rai (Elisha)

Pathway to sexual purity seminars in different dates and locations
On last 25th September, 2014 VOF had an opportunity to pre-sent the teaching on abortion and sexual purity among the youth in Nehemiah Institute at Mahalax-mithan. Mr. Simon Das had taken the class very effectively. More than 35 youths were benefited directly. We would like to appre-ciate Nehemiah Institute for the vital initiative.
Similarly, in the time Desain festival (on 1, 2 and 5th October, 2014) VOF played a vital role to trained more than 100 teenagers gathered in the youth camp or-ganized by Teenstreet, Nepal in St. Xaviers school compound in Godavari, Lalitpur. The teenagers were taught about the sexual purity in three different classes. Thank you Teenstreet, Nepal.
Same way, in the eve of Dewali festival (on last 23 and 24th October, 2014) VOF was invited by the youth of Balaju Koinonia Church and Dhading youth committee for the presentation regarding sexual purity among their youth. So, more than 80 teenagers and young adults were benefited in Balaju Koinonia Church and more than 200 teenagers and young adutlts were trained in KhaniKhola Koinonia Church in Dhad-ing. All the participants were really excited with the teaching and they really interacted without any hesitation, because the teaching was presented with non-judgmental and loving manner. They were chal-lenged and made to be committed for the purity saying Purity is Possible through Christ. Thank you all who made this event possible.
Therefore Choose life (TCL) Church leaders training in Siraha-Saptari
On last 25th September, 2014 VOF, Nepal conducted TCL training among 135 Pastor and leaders from Saptari and Siraha. The training was happened in the meet-ing hall of Orchid Cafe at Lahan, Siraha. Soman Rai(Elisha) initiated the training teaching about the sanctity of human life by Wonderfully and Uniquely created WUC presentation and secondly, he presented teaching on Abortion, its methods and its potential complications by Therefore Choose Life TCL DVD. In third session, the participants were taught about the sexual abstinence education in family, parenting and adoption as an alternative to abortion, as a church response to abortion. The question-answers session was also came about and many pastor and women leaders were clarified with that. Some of the participants shared painful experience of their past life with tears and some of them admitted that they were listening the teaching first time. So, all were prayed for the restoration and recov-ery from the trauma and hurtful emotional upheaval of abortion. And at last, they were given LIFE Bag (trainer bag) containing DVD, leaders guide, brochures produced by Gabriel International (GI) for the use of their ministry in church and community.
Voice for the Voiceless (VFV) training at Zero mile, Siraha
On 26th Sept, 2014 with the active coordination of the Believers Church in Zero mile, Siraha VOF conducted Voice for the voiceless training in the hall of Believers Church. According to our registration record 30 Maithili and Tamang women were participated in the training. The training was instructed by Soman Rai (Elisha) and Ruth Lama was an assistant in the training. The facilitator initiated the VFV presentation with interesting manner saying the creation story. The women participants in training took the teaching with great excitement. A local health volunteer lady named Phuldevi Mahora presented the yellow card very effectively in her own language, which was the highlight of the first part of training. She also told that she is going to use the card among the women in her village and area. The presentation regarding fetal development and abortion also remained extremely awesome. The women were excited first and gloomy later. A woman shared that she was able to indentify that she has been gone through the hurtful emotional upheaval of abortion. So, she was prayed for her inner healing as well. Two of the participants shared that their attitude towards unborn baby and abortion is totally changed and now they are hurry to tell other.
Pro-life Presentation in different Bible Institute and training centers.
VOF Nepal prefers to work in networking and collaboration with other institutions as well. So, on last 4th September, 2014 Nehemiah Institute prepared a platform for VOF to present Pro-life education among 17 couples from the different churches in Kathmandu. The couples were really serious with the teaching and shared their inner-feelings to us and we prayed for them. Similarly, on 14th Sept. 2014, the Lidya Institute for young ladies in Bhainsepati also gave an opportunity to VOF to provide life-giving teaching to the 20 young women from different parts of Ne-pal. After the teaching, some of the young women admitted their mistake in past and they were prayed for their inner-healing as well. And they were also given the Life bags for the use of their ministry in their village. On 19th September, 2014, VOF again presented teaching among the 13 women leaders from Kathmandu in Nehemiah Institute, which remained really productive. Thank you Nehemiah Int. and Lidya Int for your nota-ble steps.

that we are ready to help her with all confiden-

boy, but a tragic news was that doctor found
out syphilis bacteria in the mother and babys
blood. The mother and baby went under medi-
cation for ten days. Now, they are fine and the
baby is adopted by a couple who used to be a
participant in our training. They had shared
their desire to adopt a baby and applied to
VOF. Now, the couple is living happily with the
