Monthly Debriefing and Retreat:
Community Transformation Workers normally have debrief programs at Diphu, during the first week of every month for a time of reporting, collecting monthly allowances and time for praying for each other and for those who supports the ministry. Each month the Community Transformation Workers come from the field exhausted and sometime discouraged but would returned with refreshed strength and renewed mind to serve the Lord. In the month of June 6 – 8, 2013, they had a retreat program at Town Baptist Church, Dimapur. It was a time of retrospection of their personal and collective ministry, to recommit their lives and plans to God, and to earnestly seek God’s grace and blessing. During the program, Rev. Vilodi, Pastor TBC and Mr. Dietho encouraged, challenged and prayed for the Community Transformation Workers.
God has been gracious in keeping the Community Transformation Workers safe and sound and providing their basic needs. Few local churches from within and outside Karbi Anglong and individual and families had pledge to regularly support the Community Transformation Workers financially. Whatever is collected during the month is divided among the Community Transformation Workers equally. Two local churches from within KABC had pledged financially to support the ministry – Klirdap Baptist Church (NKBA) and A-Jongpha Baptist Church (WRBA). In the month of August 2013 the Garo Baptist Church, Shillong has started supporting to one of the Community Transformation Workers. We are so thankful and grateful to all the churches and individuals who supported the ministry financially.
