We are Mizo, from a former headhunting tribe of Mizoram one of the states in northeast India. Now Missionaries in Nepal.

We both were born and brought up in Christian families. In 1978 God called us to be missionaries; we answered the call Vanlaland went to our adjacent state of Assam. We moved to Nepal in 1983 and worked with United Mission to Nepal. In 1991, we took over the leadership of a Friends school in Chhatarpur, India. In May 1994, under Evangelical Friends Mission we began a church plating ministry in Nepal. By God’s grace, under our leadership there are now 36 Churches besides more than 30 outreach villages.

God is doing miracles in people’s lives. Despite the political turmoil in Nepal, God opened opportunities in numerous villages. Evangelism and church planting are our primary focuses and we are experiencing a movement of people coming to Christ. We find church planting exciting, and building up new believers challenging. Sangi and I often make visits to our churches and villages to teach, preach and supervise work. We lead training sessions, seminars and small workshops and speak at evangelistic meetings as well as church services every week. We visit homes of our people as often as we can to pray with them and encourage them. We consider home visits as a vital means to get to know our people more closely and to build strong and better relationships with them.

John 4:37 & 38, Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labor.”
