Greetings in the sweetest name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is a joy and honor for me to present the Annual report of KABC in the midst of God’s faithful servants. As witnessed in some states in north-east India in the past years, Karbi Anglong also has a bitter experience of arson of both government offices and private properties, lost of innocent lives during the year due to demand of statehood and misunderstanding between the Karbi & Rengma underground groups. As a result, indefinite bandh, curfew were imposed especially in July & August 2013, normal life of the people and religious programs were affected, many people were rendered homeless and took refuge in relief camps. Tension prevailed for some months and people could not move freely. In spite of all these untoward incidents taken place in Karbi Anglong, we experienced God’s providence, provisions and leading hands through His people. By the prayers of His faithful people, peace has been restored now. The KABC extends heartfelt thanks to CBCNEI family, particularly, the Assam Baptist Convention, NBCC and CBCNEI office for extending financial and material supports for the affected people of Karbi and Rengma. The KABC also gratefully acknowledges the kind concern shown to our affected people by APBAid, BWAid, CASA, NEICORD and so on. May the Lord continue to use them as His mighty instruments for His own glory. The KABC covets your continuous prayer supports so that peace may prevail in our land even in the days to come. With this hope and aspiration, I present here below some highlights of the activities of the KABC in 2013.

The violence that was erupted between the Karbis and the Rengmas was very unfortunate.

In these the KABC during the 34th Annual General Meeting held at Deithor Baptist Church from 13th – 16th March 2014, adopted the following resolutions for peace process in Karbi Anglong.
