Chuchuyimlang Baptist Church (CBC) has commissioned its second missionary to Arunachal Pradesh at a solemn devotional worship service on Sunday.
The newly commissioned missionary, Imtituden is a member of Mongsenyimti Compound Baptist Church (MCBC) under Mokokchung and will be replacing missionary Mapusosang to work in Khedi, Thansa and Lebnan regions of Arunachal Pradesh.
Missionary Imtituden did his graduation from Clark Theological College, Aolijen near Mokokchung in 2004 and underwent missionary training at North East Centre for Training and Research.
After completing his training, he worked as a Church Mobilizer in the same institute. Later Imtituden pursued his further studies (Master of Divinity) in Asian Evangelical College, Bangalore and worked with Indian Evangelical Church, Bangalore as a Missionary Pastor for three years.
He also worked as a missionary with the Dimasa community in N.C. Hills under Assam from 2009 to 2010.
While delivering a lecture on his call to serve God, Imtituden emotionally recalled the time when he dedicated his life to serve God at a Youth Camp organized by Mongsenyimti Compound Baptist Church in 1992.
He also awarded the credit to his parents for fostering him with the Word of God daily at home while nurturing and upbringing him towards the purpose and aspiration to serve God. Imtituden also thanked God for saving his life on various occasions from the brims of death inspite of all his weaknesses as a human.
While commissioning the missionary, Watitemjen, Resource Mobilizer of ABAM (Ao Baptist Churches Conference) dwelt on the book of Acts (Chapter – 3) and elucidated on the mission work by ABAM in Arunachal Pradesh for the last 30 years. In this regard, he expressed regret that many people precipitately presume that the missionary work in Arunachal was almost complete.
He also disclosed about his vocation as a missionary for 15 years in Arunachal and highlighted that the mission field was so vast that he could not cover most of the area during his stint as missionary.
ABAM Resource Mobilizer also expressed discontentment that there was less people to sponsor or donate for educational institutions in Arunachal.
He pointed out that if at least there were 2000 people / families to donate a hundred rupees per month could suffice the requirement in the schools. Watitemjen exhorted and called all to offer keenly towards the success of the holistic mission of ABAM.
Meanwhile, it may be mentioned that CBC had been operating its mission work in Arunachal since 2003. Short speeches were also delivered by Deacon Nungsangmatong of Chuchuyimlang Baptist Church and Deacon Tiameren of Mongsenyimti Compound Baptist Church. The programme was chaired by T. Lima Pastor of Chuchuyimlang Baptist Church .
