Nagaland

Nagaland is actually a state of India, in the far north-east, near the Burma border. Even though Nagaland is part of India, the Naga people are of Chinese origin.

Fifty years ago, they were headhunters. Now, about 90% of Nagas are Christian.

This is Pastor Throngji, wife Ayangla, and their three children. (They also have another three 'adopted' children.) He is a faithful young pastor, based in Tuensang, but with a ministry throughout many villages in the Yimchunger districts in Nagaland.

In 2014, we helped Pastor Throngji build Bethel Children's Home.

The photo shows Pastor Throngji's church members and friends lined up passing bowls of concrete to construct the building.

BCH is now operating with 14 children.

The ministry provides a loving home environment for orphans and children from poor families, a godly spiritual upbringing, and the opportunity for a good education.

We were there in October 2016, and were able to enjoy the children. It was great to see them happy, and to hear them singing praises to God (voluntarily and spontaneously)!

How cute is this?

This is Tsurila, one of the children.

The kids at BCH singing '10000 Reasons - Bless the Lord, O My Soul'.

The choreography may not be perfect, but the heart is right!

a We help Pastor Throngji buy food, clothes and blankets for the poor in the villages.

Enjoy Throngji singing "The Old Rugged Cross". He sang this around the fire in the kitchen at KTC one evening.

Ministry at Kihoto Theological College, near Yakor Village.

Enrolments have gone from 19 to 91 students in the past fours years! Praise God!

KTC is in a very remote place, on the side of a hill. Originally, it was based in a small town. The Board decided to relocate to a remote place "so the students wouldn't be distracted by worldly things".

a The students at KTC, under the guidance of their lecturer and choir master Ato, practise singing in their 'spare time'.

Enjoy as the KTC Choir transport you into the presence of the Lord singing the benediction "The Lord Bless You and Keep You"

...and "The Hallelujah Chorus"

Two of the wonderful students at KTC.

They call us 'mum' and 'dad'.

In the past few years, these two students have hugged us tightly and wept solemn tears at our farewells. We didn't understand why ... we assumed it was merely gratitude for the help and support we have given them.

This year, we found out that these - and many other young people in Nagaland - are orphans. Being able to call us 'mum' and 'dad' meant a lot to them.

At our farewell gathering, I was moved to exhort the students to love and care for each other. It was a very emotional time for all of us.

The villages in Nagaland are very poor.

These two girls - the 'kettle kids' - and many others like them, sit alone in their huts all day long, as their parents work in the fields.

This family's entire possessions were a kettle, two plastic bottles, a pair of muddy shoes, and the clothes they wore. There were no beds, blankets or food in the hut.

Through Throngji and our friends in Australia, we have been able to buy food and clothes for them.

...look at them now...

 

 

and living in their new house! (Thanks to the grace of God and the generosity of one of our friends!)

In 2012, the Lord enabled us to print 5000 Bibles in the Yimchunger language, to be distributed free-of-charge in the villages.

Prior to this, there were only 4000 Bibles available for 100,000 people in the Yimchunger tribe.

And then there are 15 other tribes in Nagaland...


Video

Enjoy the young ladies in Nagaland sing.

The words talk about their ancestors being headhunters. They want to sing, but they can't because they killed each other. But now the new generation is here. The new shoots are growing - but we are educated, and won't make the same mistakes as our forefathers.

Opportunities to help:

Bethel Children's Home Support for Pastor Throngji and his team, providing a loving environment and an education for orphans and poor children from the villages
   
Pray:
Nagaland is strongly Christian - about 90%. But many Christians are still influenced by ritualism and even beliefs in spirits which contradict Biblical teaching. Pray for a knowledge and desire to serve God in truth, and to break free from any error.
Praise for the rapid growth of KTC. Pray for the students as they prepare for ministry. All of the students come from 'poor' villages, and it is a big commitment for them to attend Bible College for four years.
 
Give thanks! The Lord has been faithful!
