Here are one of the resources we will be giving to each church represented at the training conference. It is a Trafficking Awareness and Prevention tool. It is extremely helpful for training in Nepal, as many of the women throughout the country do not know how to read. When trained in using this tool, women are able to teach other Nepali women by using the images formed through this cube. I highly recommend you watch this brief video. It is very insightful as to how trafficking occurs and its consequences.
Each cube is only $9 and will be brought to the villages by the trained women so that they will be able to bring awareness and prevention to the girls, women, and even boys who are most vulnerable to this threat. Please consider donating toward this valuable tool.
Thank you to all of you that have donated towards this cause. We have received $1,400 from our supporters so far!
This first update is regarding the first women's Nepal trip in 2016. Four women traveled from PA to join up with the mission family located in Kathmandu, Nepal. There the team helped run a 3-day women's conference in Kathmandu. And also held a 1-day conference in an outside town, Gulchi.
Two of our favorite measurable outcomes from this trip were:
1. The first conference was large and had about 70 women attending. The group was so moved by the sanctity of life segments that the birth-rate within the local church community exploded. These families took the facts presented to them and aligned the information with Biblical truths. The outcome was that within the next year, 13 babies were born, just from one church! Praise God for these little blessings!
2. Towards the end of the trip, the team traveled out of town, over the mountain, to Gulchi. This was an entirely different scene and different climate with challenging travel. However, the team was able to complete a shortened version of the conference and commissioned that group of women to go and minister and share the Gospel to their communities. We later learned that by the encouragement and teaching held from that 1-day mini conference, 161 people came to accept Jesus as their Lord from the women that attended.
This is why we go! May God be glorified and His Kingdom be advanced.
