Asbjørn Voreland, Home with the Lord!

We are very sad to inform our friends in Nepal and around the world about the passing of Asbjørn Voreland on 16 February 2022.

Asbjørn Daju (older brother) was indeed a dear brother for so many people in Nepal and touched many lives as he and his wife Mia spent over 30 years together in Nepal as missionaries. The Vorelands arrived in Nepal from Norway in 1964 with their 18-month-old daughter Hilda. They had travelled overland in a landrover with eight other people – a six-week trip, during which they took turns driving night and day with no stops!

The Vorelands started their mission work as teachers in UMN’s Gorkha Project. They were in Nepal for many years serving in various roles. They also served in KISC (Kathmandu International Study Centre) as hostel parents. Later, Asbjørn Voreland returned to Nepal in 1997 as the director of International Nepal Fellowship (INF), a sister mission in Nepal. Mia passed away in August 2018.

We will always remember Asbjørn for his passion and love for the people of Nepal and for the unique contributions he made to take the work of development forward in Nepal.

Our heartfelt condolences, thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
