Since the ACWC decided to change the national Body in Nepal from the Bible Society to another ecumenical body in Nepal, the ACWC appreciates it that the NCC Nepal and YWCA Nepal have been working together with the ACWC after the ACWC Ex. Sec. Shu-Wen visited Nepal in January 2008. After that visitation, the NCC Nepal sent the Vice President as an observer to join the ACWC Jubilee Anniversary and the ACWC Gen. Co. meeting in May 2008 in Taiwan. On 24 November 2008, the ACWC Secretariat Office received an excited update from Nepal about the ACWC-Nepal being formed:

Dear Shu-Wen,
Greetings from Nepal
The initial meeting of the ACWC Nepal, was held on November 15, 2008 at 3:00 p.m. at the YWCA's office and I, Bishnu Rai, explained about the ACWC. We all agreed to establish the ACWC Nepal committee in order to start the activities of ACWC Nepal.
First of all, we formed the committee of ACWC Nepal as follows:
1. Ms. Bishnu Rai, Council Representative--
2. Ms. Draupadi Rokaya, General Secretary of YWCA Contact Person--
3. Ms. Ishwori Shrestha, Member
4. Ms. Jyoti Shrestha, Member
Therefore, this committee will work as the network with the YWCA. We hope this committee will work according to the Constitution of ACWC. The committee also recommends Ms. Draupadi Rokaya as contact person.
Yours sincerely,
Ms. Bishnu Rai”

It is not easy to start a new Committee in a new member country. Nepal really needs our support and prayers. Please send your welcome to ACWC-Nepal and present your support to Nepal.
