Naga Missionary Forum consultation held at CTC

Dimapur, March 11 (MExN): The 6th consultation of the Himalayan region Naga Missionary Fellowship (NMF) was held at Clark Theological College (Clark) during March 8 to 10. The consultation was hosted by CTC. Altogether 40 missionaries attended the meetings, stated a press note received here.
There were also participants from the Ethnos Asia, Bangkok, the Naga Mission Movement (NMM) and Clark. Initiated in 2001 by Naga Missionaries themselves at Kathmandu, the fellowship has been meeting after a gap of every two years at Siliguri, Dimapur and Kathmandu. The main concerns and objectives of the NMF are to exist as a platform to bring about better coordination through partnership and networking among missionaries and mission agencies for dynamic results in the mission fields. The forum aims to exchange views and learn from the experiences of different missionaries, mission fields and their contexts and to motivate, inspire and stir up home churches for mission.
Dwelling on the theme of “Crucial roles and responsibilities of sponsor bodies and missionaries to the harvest force,” Rev Sonny Largado emphasised on the need of a shared vision and understanding of the missionary task amongst the sponsoring bodies and the missionaries without which the harvest force will not be strong enough to meet the challenges. Rev Wati Longkumer, NMM Director while speaking on the need of partnership and coordination between the sponsoring bodies and the mission fields observed that the involvement of the churches in the mission fields has become a necessity for successful missionary enterprise.
Other participants of the consultation were Dr. Murry, Rev Joe Zeyak and Rev. Dr. Takatemjen. The NMF resolved to conduct the consultations as an annual event from next year.
