After 73rd year of converting to Christianity, Lekie Baptist Church (LBC), ZBCC Peren Nagaland and the whole community of Lekie celebrated thanks giving programme over cent percent Christianity convert on November 17 at Lekie/Peletkie Baptist Church premises under the theme, “Seen a great light” (Isaiah 9:2).

The programme coincided with a three-day Zeme Baptist Church Council (ZBCC) spiritual gift awakening programme that commenced from November 16 hosted by Lekie Baptist Church and would culminate on November 18.

Delivering a message during the celebration as the minister, executive secretary, Zeme Baptist Church Council (ZBCC), Izieteilung Terieng dwelt on the spiritual light basing on the theme of the occasion. He opined that hundreds and thousands of years were lived by the ancestors without knowing Jesus Christ, but in the year 1946, some citizens from Lekie village also known as Peletkie village accepted Jesus Christ and started Christianity. He said that this then spread its branches resulting in cent per cent Christianity in the village today. 

Terieng explained that “Light” is phenomenal creation of God which is an indispensable requirement for everybody. Making a comparison on the earthly light and spiritual light, he reminded that the spiritual light was as good as the earthly light which every believer requires.  

Terieng pointed out that when people lose connection with Jesus Christ, they lose light but also remarked that when connection is made between Jesus Christ and people, they remain intact and see the light. 

He stated that Lekie Baptist Church was spiritually blindfolded for years but it has now unfolded and allowing them to see light and walk closer to Christ the savior. 

He further called upon the gathering to step spiritually forward to see more light and embark on a true Christian life. 

Delivering a short speech during the service, Lekie Mtei Nko (LMN), the apex organization of the citizen of Lekie/Peletkie, Hiarwetlang Kenn lauded the wisdom and decision of the last person who have accepted Christ, Nsamriale and recalled that she belonged to a family whose ancestors’ wisdom and leadership qualities were renowned among the villagers. 

He also appealed the people from other Churches and villages to forgive the citizens of Lekie if there were any nefarious deeds against them while celebrating the biggest festival once in Christian lifetime.

The first person from Lekie village to convert to Christianity was late Heicibambe, father of Haila, ex-deacon LBC while the last person was Nsamriale, who converted in 2018. She is 85 years old. In honour of their efforts, a token of appreciation were also presented to the children and grand children of late Heicibambe and to Nsamriale.

Earlier, the ES also unveiled the monolith erected in memory of Lekie people’s cent percent Christianity convert, a milestone for the Lekie Baptist Church and the citizens of Lekie.
