BSI Chokihola branch inaugurated

Bible Society of India (BSI) Dimapur Auxiliary has inaugurated BSI Chokihola Branch, Karbi Anglong, Assam on September 10 at Karbilongsa Christian Revival Church.
In a press release, Auxiliary Secretary, BSI Burma Camp, Dimapur, Yiepetso stated that the new branch was inaugurated by Rev. Dr. N. Paphino, president Dimapur Auxiliary and also newly elected office bearers were installed.
He said that BSI is inter-denominational society and non-profitable society. It belongs to all the believers of Jesus Christ and every Christian ought to participate in the mission of BSI in reaching God’s Word to all people.
The session was moderated by Rev. Benting Teron.
Rev. Dr. Yiepetso Wezah also spoke on the importance of Church participation in the mission of BSI. According to the survey of the United Bible Societies about 90% of the world population was yet to receive the Word of God.
Hence it is the responsibility of the Church to provide the Bible in their preferred languages.
Marwati, Assistant Officer, CPRRM said that BSI Branches should mobilize individual believers and Churches to pray and support the ministry of BSI. At the session, Karbilongsa Christian Revival Church presented special song.
Altogether 29 leaders from different churches participated in the programme.
The new team of BSI Chokihola Branch will be headed by Rev. Benting Teron as president, Binon Das as vice president along with other executive members and advisors.
