What Clients Say
“All the developments and social changes would not be possible if there was no educational system at Rajasimla. Today our children have an opportunity to take admission in the schools and molding themselves to be the leaders of tomorrow. These schools are effectively changing the generations today. It also enables our society to keep a good community life.”
I have never seen anything so wonderful during my whole life as the work was going on among the Garos. Those two assistants─Omed and Ramkhe had worked quietly and faithfully on amid ridicule, reproach, and even threats of personal violence and “had proved themselves to be reliable, trustworthy and faithful men, as I took them to be when I baptized them Guwahati.”
“I saw their earnestness. I saw God’s hand in it, and although I had no funds, I dared not say, No. I can only say, This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes!”
“Education is the main character for the cognitive process of transforming the society, the church and, without the knowledge of education, no one could spring up and cannot modernize humankind. This educational prospect changed the village and the people who lived there from the past till today. It also enlightened the lives of the people.”
This is the home of Omed. It is also the Garo Christian village, and its history is familiar to the readers of the Missionary Magazine. I have been spending the past week in this beautiful valley. Everything seems to be orderly and prosperous in the Christian communities. Preparations are made and materials are collected for re-thatching and repairing their chapel. The people are well clothed and clean. The two mountain streams that flow on either side of their village furnish an abundance of the purest water. Their cattle thrive, and their working oxen are ever fat for the market.
I have never seen better-conditioned cattle in India.
Suffering for Christ’s sake
Bago has had some trials. They have buried one of their children; and because they would not sacrifice demons during its illness, they received much ridicule and abuse from their heathen neighbors, who shun them as they would a pestilence. “But,” he says, “I shall never go back to such foolishness again.” He says the Lord Jesus is on his side, and that four more of his friends are now waiting for baptism.
How marvelously adapted is the rich grace of God unto salvation, to all conditions of men!
