The day arrived for the MZCF Silver Jubilee. 22 July 2018. Celebrations was organised in YMCA International House, Mumbai Central for the full day basically to give thanks, honour and praises to the Almighty Father who brought us thus far. EBCC which was formed out of MZCF cancelled all their programmes to attend the celebration. The Hmar Christian Fellowship, Kuki Worship Service and even representatives from Wesley Church attended the programme. ZCF Delhi also sent their representative to attend the programme.
The first session was a Seminar by Dr. Rev. Kh Khaizakham who is used by the Lord mightily. This was followed by a sumptuous Jubilee lunch. The second session is mostly on the celebration part. Starting with the cutting of Jubilee cake followed by special songs by the MZCF Choir and EBCC Choir who sang beautifully.
Our Secretary Joshua Singson take us through the timelines of the fellowship with an eye catching PowerPoint presentation.
The founding members pu Suakzathang Nunthuk, David Sinate and Khamkhochinthang Khuptong, and Biaklun Shoute shared how the fellowship got established and evolved coupled with some funny incidents highlighting how God really led the fellowship. Special songs were presented by Rody, Lunniang, Children Sunday’s Schoo etcl. Mementos were presented to the founding members and the past Chairmen and Secretaries. Special appreciations were also presented to EBCC Mumbai, ZCFD, KWS, HCF, Wesley Church etc.
Rev. Kh Khaizakham gave a message on the prayer of Jabez which moved each one of us. Taken from the Bible in 1 Chronicles 4:10, which read: "And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that Thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that Thine hand might be with me, and that Thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested." The prayer consists of four parts. First, Jabez asks God to bless him. Second, he asks God to enlarge his territory or increase his responsibility. Third, he prays that God will be with him and stay close. Lastly, Jabez asks that God keep him from harm so that he will be free from pain.
The programme ended with a high tea.
All for the glory of God.
