Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) constructed a guest house at Thanamir village under Pungro sub-division in Kiphire district.

The guest house which is also partially funded by Department of Under Developed Area (DUDA) was inaugurated on June 19 and attended by parliamentary secretary for excise, economic & statistics and legal metrology & consumer protection, T. Torechu and advisor DUDA, Naiba Konyak.

Thanamir village also popularly known as ‘Apple Village’ is one of the most remote Naga villages located at the foothills of Mount Saramati bordering Myanmar.

NBCC has planted 1200 apple saplings in a gesture to encourage the villagers to undertake apple plantation. So far villagers have also planted a total of 15,000 apple saplings, informed NBCC, general secretary.

Speaking at the inaugural function, T. Torechu advised the villagers to be accommodating in order to draw more visitors.

He said the new guest house should be used to impart trainings and conduct fellowship and not merely be misused as ordinary guest houses.

With the establishment of the new guest house and mission activities of the NBCC, Torechu desired that Thanamir villagers would begin to live a life of peace and harmony in a true Christian spirit.
He further complemented the NBCC on their achievement.

The parliamentary secretary then urged the villagers to inculcate a sense of belonging and protect the new guest house from being misused by some elements.

Torechu has also encouraged the villagers to be diligent in works and be economically self reliant.
Marveled at its strategic location and blessed with nature’s bounty, Naiba Konyak said Thanamir village has the potential to develop and earn itself a place in a global roadmap.

He said the Thanamir apples and Mount Saramati are two important areas which could attract visitors from across the world and give impetus to their economic uplift.

Appreciating the villagers for donating land to NBCC for construction of the guest house and for cultivation of apple farm, Naiba said generosity would enable to usher in more development and encouraged the villagers to be generous in any developmental activity initiated by the government.

He said the state government has a special interest for development of Thanamir village and further appreciated NBCC for the successful execution of work.

NBCC general secretary, Rev. Dr. L Anjo Kekung, who said the dedicatory prayer, briefed on the objectives of NBCC mission in Thanamir.

He informed that NBCC was sponsoring two teachers in Thanamir village. Kekung further informed that NBCC with its 50 delegates was planning to organise a medical camp in Thanamir in month of October.
