The Annual Thanksgiving Service of the Dimapur Auxiliary and other programmes in the month of April 23 to 25 was very eventful and fruitful. Dr. Hrangthan Chhungi, the Associate Director, Department of Church, Public Relations and Resource Mobilisation was the Speaker for the Thanksgiving programmes on the Saturday 23th evening and Sunday 24th whole day.  The active participation of the hosting Church, Christian Revival Church of Itanagar Branch and other branches such as Tangsa, Wancho, Naharlagun and Hanagar; Kohima Branch, Churachantpur Branch and the Dimapur Branch were highly encouraging. The hospitality and the enthusiasm of the hosting branch that was newly formed in the year 2021 are greatly appreciated and commendable.

The participation and leadership of the Auxiliary Committee members such as Rev. Dr. N. Paphino, President, Rev Tenga Seb, Treasurer, Mr. Those Krahoh, Rev. Tar Choya, Rev. Tai Ete, Rev Vanmawia under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Yiepetso Wezah, the Auxiliary Secretary is a good indication of the strong support the Dimapur Auxiliary is having across the branches of the Dimapur Auxiliary. The Kohima Branch received the Certificate of Acknowledgement as the highest contribution, followed by the Churachandpur Branch, then the Itanagar Branch. The Volunteer Certificate was also awarded to Mr. Lhokishe Shohe for 10 years of untiring dedication for mobilizing fund for the ministry of the Bible Society of India.

There is a high demand of Bibles in the State of Arunachal Pradesh in many of their native languages. As of now, there are 24 major tribes speaking 24 different languages. Out of these 24 different languages spoken in this State, Bible is available only with 4 languages. This is a great challenge for the people of Arunachal Pradesh and for the Bible Society of India in our translation work too. As they have expressed their eagerness to have Bible in many more heart languages of the State, let us continue to uphold the growth of the BSI works in the State of Arunachal Pradesh so that many more native people can have Bible in their own heart languages soon in the days to come.
