Tua ahih manin, gam khat, minam khat a khantoh nadingin, mimal khatciat i khantoh photphot ding kisam masa pen hi. Mahatma Ghandi in, “Leitung’ kikhelna na muhnop leh nang mahmah kikhel masa hamtang phot in,” ci hi. Mipi kikhel nading leh khantoh nadingin, mimal, nu leh pa leh tate, innkuan pan hong kipan khia ding ahi hi. “Nupa kilungtuak khua khat in zolo”, cih paunak i neih mah bangin, i khantoh nop mahmah leh nupate pen khut khat tawi, khe khat khai i bat ding, kisam hi.

Bang mang i man hiam? Joseph in a mang mat khit a kipanin, gimthuakna singlamteh lam zuih hong kipanto ngekngek pah hi. A sanggamte’n a pa’ piak puanbansau, a hawkkhiatsak khit uh tek amah hong zuak uh hi. Ismael nam sumbawlte’ tungpan Pontiphar in na lei citciat hi (Gen. 39: 1 ff). Joseph in, apa’ innlum pan, Pontiphar inn ah innteng nasem hong suak hi. Tua panin, thongsung hong tung hi. Apa’ inn, Pontiphar’ inn leh thong, mun thum hong kantanin, apa’ piak puan, innteng puan leh thong puan, a puan thumvei a khek khit ciang bekin, Kumpi puan silhin, gam uk mangpi hong suakto pan hi.

1. Pasian Masasak Ding (God First)

Mihing picing nuntakna i-cih in mite’ phattuamna dinga nuntakna ahi hi. Tua ahih manin, St. Paul in: “Nasepna anam tuamtuam om a, ahizongin ana i-sepsak Topa khatbek ahi hi. Nasep nading siamna anam tuamtuam om a, ahi zongin septheih nading siamna ahongpia Pasian khatbek ahi hi” (1 Cor 12:6) hong ci ngiat hi. Tua hi a, mite’phattuam nading na hoih napha i septheih nangin, muhkholh theihsiampilna pen Pasian hongpiak thupha hi a, tua Topa’ hong piak thuphate, amaa ading, i mi i sa leh i gam i lei adingin zat siam ni!

Thuhilhkikna 8:18 sungah zong, “Na hauh nadingun vangliatna hong piapa in Topa na Pasian uh ahih manin amah na phawk ngitnget ding uh hi” ci-in hong hilh lai hi. I-gennop thu in: “Nakhempeuh ah Pasian masak ni”, cih thu ahi hi.

John F. Kennedy (1961-1963) in  American President dinga kiciamna a neih ni (20.1.1961) in, “I gam in kei adingin bang hong sepsak ding hiam cih ngaihsun kei unla, i gam adingin ke’n bang sem thei ding ka hi hiam cih ngaihsun zaw un” ci hi. US President, Regan (1911-2004) in a vote campaign lai-in,”I gam puahna dingin kumpi’ sum(Budget) a kicin zawh kei leh, keima’ mimal sum tawh behlap ding hi’ng”  cih gen hi. Ngahna ding lam gen hetlo in piakkhiatna ding lam bek gen zaw hi.

Nam it khatin a  minsiat nading phal ngeilo ding hi. Paunakin,”Sakhi in a tat nang kuamkua khual” a cih mah bangin   kiim leh kiang banah mailam hun khual kuul hi.Nam i it leh mailam hun ding zong khual kuul hi. I omna ciatah i khantoh theih nangin a kitangsam tampi om ding hi.Tuate laka khat pen gam  ahi hi. Mangte’ paunak in, “Pai loh sang zekai hoihzaw (Better late than never)” a cih mah bangin, zekai sim mah le hang mainawt zel ni. Pilna (Education) zong nam khantoh nang in a kitangsam  khat hi. British Prime Minister Tony Blair in, “ British gam khantoh na dinga kitangsam masa  thumte hong ki dong leh; Education, Education, Education ci in ka dawng ding hi” cih gen hi. Pilna thupi ngaihsut uh ahih manin leitung gam tampi a thunuaiah koih in ukzo uh hi. A vaihawmna gam uh za lua ahih manin ‘nitum ngei lo kumpi gam’ kici liang hi. Leitung hun hong kikhel zel mahleh pilna manphatna kiamlo dinga manpha tek tek zaw ding hi.

I nam a man loh nang leh a khantoh sem sem na dinga  kitangsam pi pen Pasian nambat khatna ah  koih ding ahi hi. Laisiangtho in, “Pasian’ gam leh dikna zong masa un, tua hi leh tua nate kheempeuh hong kipia thuah ding hi(Mathew 6:33)” ci hi. I mimal leh i minam sungah Pasian i thupi sak pen ding kitangsam hi. Pasian nambat khatna ah a koih nam leh gam te khangto uh hi

Appendix: Zomi te'n bang mang i man hiam? Dream had difficulties and delays, so we have to be very patient. Eg. Abraham got a son after 90 years. Noah finished building the Ark after 120 years. Israelites spent 40 years to arrive at the Promised Land. Joseph spent 40 years in prison. Jacob only after 14 years got his sweetheart Rachael. President Nelson mandela spent 27 years in prison. Before her second landslide election in 2016, she did not complain at all the annulment of her first landslide election in 1990, but awaited the second occasion patiently and magnanimously. Moses stayed 40 years in Pharoah's Palace. He spent 40 years in shepherding and 40 years in the desert. Impatience will get you into trouble (Prov. 19:2). Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for him to act (Ps. 37:7-8). Mihingte hihzawhloh nate, Pasian in hih thei hi God (Lk. 18:27); lungkia loin thu ngen tawntung ding heart (Lk. 18:1). Let us not weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up (Gal. 6:9). Abraham, when hope was dead within him, went on hoping in faith...He relied on the word of God (Rom. 4:18). Trust the Lord with all your heart and do not depend on your own understanding. Remember the Lord in all you do and he will give you success (Prov. 3:5-6). All leaders are learners, the moment you stop learning is the moment you stop leading.

Charity Begins At Home (Inn Gua Hah Masa Ding):

Zo Paunak ah, "Inn gua hahlo a gam gua hah" cih na nei uh hi. A gennop pen in "Inn gua hah masa ding" cihna hi. Inn gua cih ciang Zomi upate in inn kiim ah a kicing guate, akisap ciangin gamsungah a pote sangin olno taka akisat thei ziau, a nei om diudeu a, a neite kiang pan kingen in kizang thei hi.

Tua ahih manin - Zomi aw, Zomi mah khual phot in. Zomi mah khoi phot in. Zomi mah kem phot in. Zomi mah pattah phot in. Zomi mah lamto phot in. Zomi mah laisiam sak, sum hausak, pilsak, khangkhan phot lecin, nangmah Zomi na angtang dinga, Zomi bek hilo midang namdang nangawn na huhzo ding hi. Nang bangmah hi nailopi in midang na huainop doldol leh bel "inn gua hahlo a gamgua hah" hong hidinga, "Charity begins at home" cih hong hilo ding hi. A khangto gam leh minam in amau leh amau kikem masa uh hi.

Thukhupna: Zomi te zong:  Zomi a thahat mahmah mateng Zogam thahatlo ding hi. Zomi leh Zogam a thahat mahmah khit ciang lawm leh gual leh namdang tawh kizom leng i thahatna mite in thei pan ding hi. Ei mahmah kisatsuah masalo, kiging nailo in midang khawng i huaisawm, i konlawh sawm leh kihih zolo ding hi. Tua ahih manin Zomi in Zomi mah huai masa ding, Zomi mah picingsak phot ding, tua khit ciang a banban in hong piangpiang ding hi. Tu laitakin bel Zomi te in - "Inn gua mah i hah masak ding hi." Charity begins at home.  Hau Za Cin (Phuitong Liim)                    

           Innkuan sungah pate in ih Pasian biakna, ngeinate ih tate tungah ih hilh sawn ding ahi hi. Jocob in zong a zi atate Pasian biak zia hilh a, a gam dang pasiante uh koih khiasak hi. (Pian 35:1-7) Pasian hehpihna ih san ziate tate tungah teci pangin ih hilh ding ahi hi. Tang lai mi masate in zong tua bangin hih uh hi. (late 44:1)

 

 

 

Khangno/thak: Lametna le Picinna

Khangno i-cih in mipite ii ‘lametna le picinna’ ahi hi. Khangnote ii tungah mailam nuntakzia ding i-lametna khempeuh kinga in, amaute hangin tua lametnate hong picing ding ahi hi. I-nau oihla sungah, “Nau aw hong khang mengmeng aw, huan aa maidawng hong bang aw. Huan aa maidawng nong batkhit ciang, Saka singkang vakuai aw. Sak aa singkang nong kuaihzawh ciang na pa’ tha khek aw, ama tang hong tawi aw e” ci in, naukhim in i-ihmusak hi. Hih nau oihla sungah ‘hih naupang tungah i-lametna aliatzia i-muthei hi.

1. Khantohna

Khantohna in mi khatlenih thumlelite ii sumlepaai neihna, hauhna, pilna leh innlelo hoihna tawh aki en hilo hi. Khantohna in sumlepaai neihna hauhna leh pilna bek himasa lo hi. Khantohna in ‘mihing picin’ na ahi hi. Mihing picinnang nasepna pen khantohna nasep ahihlam i-phawk dingleh i-tel ding thupi mahmah kasa hi. Mihing ahoih saklo, apicing saklo, mihing nuntakna alamsanglo thutampi leh natampi om hi. Tuate tampi i-neih hangin, i-theih hangin khantohna kicilo hi. (cf. Paul VI, Populorum Progressio, 14).

Mihing i-cih in ei uutthu tawh, khatkia khaici lipo bangin pokhia in, a kipiang kihi lo a, tuamah bangin khatkia in kikhangto thei tuanlo hi. Mihingkhat i-piankhiat nangin minih na om masa in, mikhat khantoh nadingin mitampi kisam hi. Gilkial hunah anpia ding, pilna asinpih ding, gamtathoih alakding, naseptheihna siamna tuamtuam ahilhding, sumbawlpih ding cihbangin mikhat khantohna dingin mitampi kisam hi. Hihthu te i-etciangin, mihingkhat minamkhat khantohna picing i-neih nadingin ‘kizopsiamna’ athupi’t zia hong theisak hi. Eimite i-khantoh nading hong khaktan den thute sungah athupi mahmah khat in: kizopsiamna i-neihlohna hang ahi hi.

Innkuan sung, ulenau sung leh behlephung sung ah kizopsiamlo, khua khatlekhat lah kizopsiam lo, Christian vive kicinuam teei napi hangin, pawlpi khatlekhat zong kizopsiamna aki neizo nailo ahi hi. Kizopsiamna leh kitelsiamna a omlohna mun, kizopsiamna aneilo minam leh gampen khangto ngeilo hi (cf. Ibid, 14, 17).

Kizopsiamna leh kizopna picing neihna in khantohna dingin i-bulpi leh ahiang hoihte ahi hi. Zung le bul kician omlo in, dinkip nading munmuan aneilo mi hongsuak sak in, khantohna hoih, khantohna picing hong tunpih ngeilo hi. Dinkipna ding bul kician aneilote huihnun nalamlam aa ataai singtehkeu tawh kibangin, huih ahat leh ahatna lam zui-in amaute paizia manlangin, huihmut nana lamah nawhlen nawhtai mahmah uh hi (cf. Pope Francis, Address at the Vigil, XXIV World Youth Day in Panama, 26 January 2019).

2. Hong Lehkaihkik Thute

Hih atunga i-gensa thute tawh kizom in, khantoh nading hanciamna ah hong lehkaih kikthei thute lungngaih kikkik ding thupi hi. Hong lehkaihkik thei thutampi omkha dinghi. Tua tampi te lakah pawlkhat kong sungkhia nuam hi. Tu a kongsun khiatding thute pen eimi sungah kisam kasak phatdiak thute hi in, ei khangthak khangno te in i-paihkhiat zawhnang hanciam loh aphamawh kasak thute zong ahihi.

2.1. Gensiatna le galbawlna (Systematic recourse to complaining and attacking tactics)

Gensiatna in ‘kipawlkhopna thagui’ zawmsak in, galbawlna in ‘nasepkhop theihna’ susia hi. Gensiatna in mi thadahte nasep hi in, galbawlna in poi-gitlohna akilahkhiatna ahi hi. Gensiat nasep asemte leh mite agalbawlnuam dente pen thadah le poi-gitloh athuahte ahi hi. Mikhat, khuakhat, minamkhat, gamkhat khantohna dingin ‘gensiatna le galbawlna’ lampi nusiat ding akisam pelmawh ahi hi. Minam leh biakna kibatlohna hang, beh le phung kibatlohna hang, khua le tui kibatlohna hang, geelna le tupna kibatlohna hangin ‘gensiatna le galbawlna’ cihte tuni dong ciangin eimite sungah thahat lai mahmah hi. Hih thute athahat laiteng akhangto nailo ding i-hih lam phawkhuai mahmah hi.

Ki gensiatna le ki galbawlna kammal akihello kamkupkhopna i-neihtheih ding pen kisin phat huai mahmah in, akisam mahmah thu ahihna phawksiam ni. Innkuan ahoihsak ding, khualetui alamsang ding, miman atawisang ding, gamlelei apuahpha ding khangthak/no te in: (i) Cinghtak le thukhualtak in thungaihsutna neih theihding, (ii) Zahtaksiamna, lungsim ciimna le pilvang takin, mite tawh kizoptheih ding, (iii) Cihtakna leh lawpna tawh khualetui, minam leh gamlelei ading nasepnopna lungsim phuhbang kho a ma apangkhawmte ihih nading, leh (iv) Muhkholhna kician leh lampiman zuihna tawh mite amakaihte ihih zawh nading, cih thu manphate i-kiphawksak phapha hi. (cf. Benedict XVI, Address to the Plenary Assembly of the Pontifical Council for Culture, “Youth without Hope; Society without a Future”, 7 February 2013).

Muhkholhna kician neilote ii nasep in migensiat le miko hi in, galbawlna in lampiman zuihloh na ahihi. Lametna hoih aneilote in muhkholhna kician nei ngeilo in, muhkholhna (vision) neina pi in, lampiman azuilote in mite galbawlnopna lungsim neiden uh hi. Muhkholhna (vision) hoih neina pi in, lamdawt atawnnuamte in, galbawlna leh langpanna lampi tawn uh ahih man in, amuhkholhna uh taangtun ngeilo hi. Ei Zogam Zolei ah deih banga khantohna a om theihlohna in, thukhat peuhpeuh ah lamdawt i-totnop luatman ahi hi. Lamdawt totnopna in thuman tawh hong kigamla sakin, thuhoih/pha tawh hong tonkhawmsak lo-in, hong ki aakgual khensak zaw lai hi. Hihbang paiziate khangthak/note in nong nusiat ngamding uh kong hanthawn phaphahi.

2.2. Khangthak Thubek Kipletna leh Taangthu Nialna (The Cult of Youth and Rejection of History)

Khangthang thubek kipletna leh taangthu mante nialna, sannoplohna, deihlohna le zaknoploh nate in khuakhat, minam khat le gam khat khantoh nading hong dinkhawlsak, hong lehkaihkik thute ahi hi. Khanglui thuhoihte laksiam, dottuah siamin, ei khangthak hun a, thuhoih thuphate tawh gawmsiam zatsiam leng, khanggui kizom khantoh picinna hong suak ding hi.

Khangthak thubek kipletna cihciangin: Khangno deihna tawh akituakte bek thupisan na, khangno uut bangte bek huntawh kizui nuntakna leh khantohna sa in, khangno lungsim paizia leh deihna uutna tawh akituaklo i-sak thu khempeuh khangluivai, khantoh vailo, tuhun ah akizang theinawn lo thu ci in, donlohna, nialna leh kinbawllohna thute ahi hi. Khangnote deihna uutna in banghiam i cih ciangin, ‘suakta ding’, ‘a uutbang sepkhuan paikhua ngah ding’, ‘kua man ukin nawngkai saklo ding’, ‘tuabang a ki-ukna in khanglui lungsim’ cih paiziate hi in, hih thute pen tulaitak in, Pasian zah in thupi akisa thute ahi hi. Hihthu te pen khangno te ii thumeilet te ahihman in, mitampite (gentehna: politicians, mainstream social media, social manipulators, masters of manipulation, etc.,) in hihthute tawh khangno te thuhilhin (indoctrinated) amau deihna na-ah gan nakphehkhau aa kaihbang in kaai  uh hi. Hihthu hangin, thukhat, nakhat, mihing, ganhing akipan na khempeuh ah ‘man’ (value) cih pen khangthak khangno tampite lungsim ah, “amaudeihna, uutna, lungkimna” cihte tawh tawikhai ta uh hi. Hihthu in mimal khantohna, khua leh tui, gam leh lei leh minam khantoh nading hong dinkhawlsak in, hong lehkaihkik den thute ahi hi (Cf. Pope Francis, Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation, Christus Vivit, 25 March 2019, n. 182). (In my opinion, youthfulness is ideologically identified with ‘modern’ and sumptuously glorified as being ‘absolute autonomy’. Masters of manipulation in social and political area exploit the youth by indoctrinating the ideological dogma of ‘youth’ and the philosophical dogma of ‘absolute autonomy’).

Hih atunga thutawh akizom athupi khat in: taangthu nialna ahi hi. Taangthu theilo minam in zungnei lo singkung tawh kibangin mibeel in nungta den (parasitic plants) uh a, taangthu sungah aki khial thute mah khial kikkik thei lel uh hi (paunak in kiciamteh). Taangthu man (minam taangthu man, khuakhat, innkuan khat, gamkhat ii taangthu man) theihna in khialhna tawmsak in, muhna picingsak a, geelna tangzai sak in, khensatna man neihnang hong huh tawntung hi. Taangthu i-cih abeisa hun ah apiangsa thuman thutakte, mite in atuahsa, asinsa uh nuntakzia leh sepna bawlna, geelna tupnate sinna, theihna, kanna in eite hong lehkaih hilo zaw in, bulkip tungah dinmun muanhuai hong neisak ahi hi. Minam taangthu asia apha athei lo, asinlo akinlo, a awlmawhlo mikhat in tua minam hoihtak/phatakin makaih zongeilo ding hi (No history no people). Mailam thu ding geelkhawlhna lian, ngimna lian leh tupna sang i-neih theih nading in, i-taangthu sungah asia apha tampite etkik, vilkik ding kisam hi. (cf.

Nehemiah a zaa lianin nuamsa mahmah napi, tua tawh lungkim lo a, ama' omna Susa pan tai 700 bang a kigamla Jerusalem leh a mipihte vei hi. Tua ahih manin Judah gam pan hong ciah, a sanggampa Hanani tungah Jerusalem khua leh a mite' omzia teng dong hi (Neh 1:2,3). Hanani in Jerusalem-a thupiang teng a gen ciangin Nehemiah om thei nawnlo a, a sep theih bang seem dingin a lungsim ah veina leh lawpna hong nei pah lian hi.

Makai khat i hih nak leh veina i neih ding kisam hiVeina in hong lawpsak ahong lawhcingsak hiMakaite a lawploh uh ciangin mipite zong thadah pah uh hi. Lawpna i neih theih nadingin gamlapi zong pai kulse lo hi. Ei' omna pan khuadak ding hi ziau lel hi. Ei' vai bek tawh buai den loin, i kiim i pam ah bang thu piang hiam cih zong i muh, i zak ding kisam hi.

2.   A nihna ah Nehemiah in thungen hiJerusalem khuapi omzia thu a zak cingin kha 4 sung kapin thum a, an tangin thungen hi. Hih lai-ah Nehemiah thungetzia etteh huai mahmah hi.

Amasa penin Pasian liatna phat masa hi. Tua khit ciangin Pasian pen kamciam a len Pasian ahihna gen hi (Neh 1:5).

Gam khat hita leh, pawlpi khat hita leh, kipawlna khat hita leh midangte tawh kipawl loin amah kia a tangtat leh khuasuak zo ngeilo ding hi.

Tua pen Pasian ka kihtak man hi, ci hi. Nehemiah in khasum a lakloh hangin Pasian in thupha pia a, neih leh lam kicing takin nei ahih manin ni simin mi 150 an vak zo den hi.

Biakna Makai i hi a, minam makai i hi zongin ei' ang sung ding bek en lo-in midangte' phattuam nading i et ding thupi mahmah hi. Midangte' tung pan ngah sawm loin, midangte a pia, a huh zo dingin ki-ap ding hi hang. Makai ihih leh a la ding hi loin, a piakhia ding hizaw hi hang, cih phawk ni.

Tua ahih manin, a kipiangthaksah, a kikhamisah pha deuh, mi a hawm thawhthawh te pawl in, i upna le i nuntakna kisit pha mahmah ni, upna si maw, dawite’ upna maw, a nungta upna maw, cih kitelcian ding kisam mahmah hi. Upna neu khat nangawn in na kha vantung gam ah hong tunpih dinga, upna lian mahmah in na nuntakna sungah vangam nuam hong lutpih ding hi. (C. H. Spurgeon). Eite pen Pasian in ama’ lim leh meel sun-a hong bawlte ihi hi (Gen. 1:26). Tua khit ciangin Jesu lim leh mel sun ding in hong gumkhia leuleu hi (Rm. 8:29). India makaipipa Mahatma Gandhi in, missionary E. Stanley Jones kiangah, “India gam-a Christiante in Jesu Christ lim hong sun uh hen”, ci-in gen ngiat hi. Amah in, “I like Christ, but I do not like Christians, because they are so unlike Christ”, ci ngiau thong hi. Ngaihsun thei leng a n amah hi e maw, ei Christiante a ding. (Our Daily Bread)

Abraham, take your son and offer him (Gen. 22:3). Isaac, mehlim hong pia in (Gen. 27:4). Elijah, tui le moh hong pia in (1 Kum. 17:11). Jesus, ka dawn ding tui hong pia in (Jn. 4:7). Ngahna sangin piakkhiatna ah thupha lian zaw (Acts 20:35).

Zomi uleh nau a kua mah peuh,

Kum kiveiveita leh, kum hong thakkik kik ta leh ei Zomite ih kipumkhatna, khang zuahzuah tuanlo, a bang ci khong. Ahang kikum in, kipuahpha ciat ni. Thu maan thudik zong ni. Kei muhna dan zong hong kumpah kahihi. Ahoih lam inkikum ni.

Kipumkhatna leh kibatkimna (Unity and Uniformity.)

Zomite ih kisapmahmah thunih om hi. Tua te in, kipumkhatna (Unity) leh kibatkimna (Uniformity) a hihi. Hih unity leh uniformity pen kei muhdan kei saandan dung zui a kong gelh khiat hi. Midangte muhdan saandan tawh zong kibang lo ding hi. Kitel siam ni.

Ei Zomite ih kipumkhat (Unity) theihna ding Minam vai (A myota ye, Nationalism, National interests) leh Gamvai (Bitna, khantona) (Nai ngant a ye, Nation affairs; security and development) thunih bek omhi. Biakna, nai ngan ye party (Political Party), kipawlnate (Association, Union, Organization..) , te ah kipumkhat theih nading lampi/thu omlo hi. Ih khuasak zia, ihnunzia, ihhauhna, ihpilna, ihsiamna, te mun leh mual zui-in, ei Zomi te kibatkimna (Uniformity) a om thei ngei ding hilo hi.

Ahi zongin, uniformity omlo in cikmah hun in unity omthei ngeilo ding hi. Tua ahih ciang in, a kibanglopipi kawmkal pan kipumkhat na (Unity in Diversities) ihzon ihzat hong kul ding hi.  Ih kibatkimlona (No uniformity) teng hemkhia in, ihkibatkimna (Uniformity) gawmin kipumkhatna (Unity) ih lam kul ta hi.

Tua ahih leh ei Zomite ih kipumkhat thei nading ih minam vai hi napi’n, bang hang in, abulpi pen ahi ih minam min ding ah kithukim, kipumkhat zolo ih hiam? (Why?) Athu ahang’ (Reason) ih zon kul hi. Mimal muhna ih sung’ ciat dinga ih kikum ding hi.

Kei muhna-ah:- No. 1. Ih minam kee te leh ih kampaute ei leh ei ki-ultung sak (Self-centered) lua ihhi kha kei tam? Ihminam kee te khat leh khat kideidan (Segregation) kisimmawh, kineu-et (Contempt) kha ih hi kei tam? Pawlbawllo (Rejection) kha ihhi kei tam? Tua ban ah ih Zopau sang’ ei miman kee kampau zang nuam zaw sese ihhi kei tam? Ka na cici hi. 2013 kum census lai ka et ciangin a result bang hong ciding cih kithei nailopi in, eite khat leh khat kisel in, ih kitawng zawzen hi. Gtn: Chin code sungah Code No. nei minamkee (Sihzang, Saizang Khuano, Zo..) tampi ommahtase leh Zote bangin (Kei zong Zote ka hihi.) Ko code nambat 421 nei ung, ko pu Zo suante hi ung, no “Sim” te’n ka min uh “Zo” hong deihgawh in “Zomi” a ci hi uhteh ci-in, code nambat “914” “Zomi” cih ding utlo bekthamlo in, Code No. 421 Zo ah hong kigawm un ci hi. Tua in minam kee ki ultungsakna (Self-centered) ahihi. Tua mah bangin hih ZIUSA te’n “Zomi” vai tawh kisai video campaign a’pai nate en leng Zo Baptist Church a hizong in UZO ah hi zong in te ah va pai aa, holina or kilawmtana (Dialogue or Fellowship) ki neivetlo zel kawikawi hi. Tua in kideidanna (Segregation) ki pawlbawllohna (Rejection) nahizel kawikawi hi.

Ih baangkuasung, i innsung pet-mah longaal-ah, Zopau zang ciat leng. Mipi kikaihkhopna ah, i minamkee pau ciat i zatnop ciangin hemlam sinthu vive tawh a’kiho, a’kikhawl ihihi.

No. 2. A hithei khempeuh ah Kibatkimna (Uniformity) ihzon or ihzat kul hi. Gtn; Ih Zopuan bang en leng nam tampi (3 leh 4 bang) bang pha pah mawk hi. Mi namdang te’n na Zopuan or Zominampuan (National Costume) uh koi pen aa hia? hong cih leh koipen na kawk tam? Tangciin tawh kikhui pen maw? or Puandum tawh ki khui pen maw? or Tualpuan tung aa ciangkawi kikha (Dr. Suan Za Dong’ Designed, Chin U See te’n Zopuan ding aa’ officially a’ kipsak pen) pen na kawk tam? Ih sanggam ih Zomi pih Haka, Falam te’n khat bek nei hi ei!

Zopuan/Zominampuan nih leh thum om theilo. Khat ih tel kul. Tangciin tawh kikhui puan pen, Biakna sia te ahih leh a siapi zaw deuh teng, lasak siam minthang teng, Dr. suang zaw deuh teng, mi thupi minthang zawdeuh, Zomi te kikhopkhawpna khat peuh ah mipi tawh kimaingat aa, hong lehtut teng bek pian ii silh ngam ahihi. Kei bang va silh kha leng “e mawkmawk zaw zen” hong kici pah ding hi. Zomi sungah mi deinih (Class) a khen puan hi aa, Zopuan/Zominampuan in kizang theilo hi. Kei hing a’ ki ci ngam zaw deuh te silh ngam bek puan pen minampuan suak thei ngeilo ding hi. Tua ahih ciangin Zomi namni cih khawngah, ih ki uniform theih nadingin,  kua man’ “Tangciin” ih silh loding hong thupi ding hi. Zong ih khui sak nawnlo ding thupi hi. (Zuu nek kha’am zaw ding maw? zuu huan man zaw ding?) Puandum lah numei te Zopuan/Zominampuan hi ci leng, minampuan dingin “Coat” khawng aa khui mawkmawk ding hi nawnlo hi. Dr. Suan Za Dong’ designed pen mah zat lel ding ahihi. Mi pawlkhat in, tu aa atung a teng lah zangvetlo in, cikmah hun aa, a kizang ngeilo a ngawng ah “Puanlaisan” bekneu (Scarf) khat khai niang’nuang se hi. Tua zong zopuan hilo. “Puanlaisan” ih zat nop vet leh lah ihpu ihpa te zatdan in ih liangko ah vet ni, tua in pi’salvai (Manliness) a hihi.

Ih dialkhiip ding zong kibang sak ni. (Kawl te in nai dial a khiim uhhi. Khamtung mite in saihaa dial a khiim uh hi. Zola simbu sung pan kila) “Saiha dial” dialkaang (White Turban) a cih na ahihi. Mawzaa khau tawh kiphan lukhu gial peuh khuk mawkmawk ding hilo hi.

Ngeina (Culture) lam zong puahphat ding tamlai lua dinghy kikum toto lai ni.

No. 3. Zomi te sihna nopna ah kikhawlkhawm in, Pasian bia khawm leeng, ih labu (Hymn Book) zat zong kibanglo in ih lasak nop thei mahmahlo hi. Ih kipumkhatna zong bei cikcik sak hi. Tua ahih ciangin ZBC labu (Hymn book) mah zangh lel ni. ZCLS te puah kik zong anaa na (Kawlpau aanaa) tawh zatsak sak kul nawn kei. Ki uniform ta ni!

Sepna bawlna, nopna dahna, nek leh dawnnate ah sem khawm bawl khawm diamdiam; nuam khawm dah khawm, ne khawm dawn khawm liailiai in, ih neih ih lam sunsunte zong, Thang Ho leh Lian Do te mah bangin mimtang phel hawm taangtang phel hawm leng, ih neih ih lamte zong Pasian in thupha hong piak sak ding a, hawm leh zeek hong cing ding, ih lei nunna ah van nunna ma lep in, lungdeih teng lii bang hong cing ding hi.

Tu laitak ei Christian te in, Abraham in Sodom Pasian in a suksiat loh nading leh (Gen. 8:20-33); Moses in Israel mite tungah Pasian hehna a daih nading thu a nget mah bangin (Ex. 32:1-35); thu i nget mahmah ding hun ahi hi. Mai lam muh khawlhna leh gel khawlhna a om lohna mun ah mihingte kisia hi (Pau. 29:18). "Na lungsim ngaihsutnate, nuntakna nak hi a, na neihsa a manpha pen bangin nakep ding ahi hi" (Pau. 4:23) acih mah bangin, mailam nuntak nading gelna ah ngaihsutna pen thupi mahmah hi. Ngaihsutzia a tuam tek kinei thei, ahih hangin kalsuan khop theih nading pawl khat ensuk ni: Tua ahih manin, tulai Zomite, i bukmun kek/khan ding i cih ciangin, thunman citakin, ei leh ei kiuk zo kimakaih zo a, i upna leh i ngeinate nuntakpihsiam, kepsiam zunsiamin, midangte’ muan leh suan, etteh mitsuan huaidingin nungta a, innveng hoih, loveng hoih i hihzawhna in, bukmun kekna le i khetphimte khetkipna ahi hi. Zomite koimun koimun ah i tung ta zongin, gelkholhna, tupna lianpi nei ni, Zovaphual’ cihtaknate kepsiam ni. Zoheisa a namtui hiauhiau mah bangin, Zomi i hihna kisaktheih pihin, thupha bawlna le nuntakna hoihte tawh namtui den ni! Jesu tawh zingvai nitakvai hawmkhawmin, laitual lengkhawm ni! Mihing nuntakna cih pen pilna bek, sum le paai hauhna bek cihte tawh a manziau, a picingpak ziau hilo hi. Minhoih minpha neih ding zong kisam hi. Pasian in minam khat thupha a piak ding ciangin, gam makai hoihte pia masa hi. Pasian in Israel mite acing akem ding, saltanna leh galte khut sungpan a honkhia dingin, Moses, Joshua, Samson, Gideon, Judith leh Esther cihte na telkhia hi. Tua leh tu-ni Zomite, thupha i ngah nop leh thupha angahte nuntak khuasakziate kanin etteh siam ding kisam hi. Joseph ii mangmat a tangtun zia, ei a dingin khinkhai ding leh i zuihpah dingin ka deih hi.

Tua banah, eite in, “khat hang aa zu leh sa kine”, cih paunak theihsiam telsiam ni. Gamhoih gampha atungte in a hamphatnate uh ei Zogam innlam a omte kiangah Zo damtui bangin hong luan, hong hawm uh hi. A thupha bawlnate uh Zodam huihkhi bangin hong nung hiauhiau hi. Nuamsa in nuntakgim hong nam tuam hi. Tua ahih manin, i pu i pate in, hih kithutuahnate, kipumkhatnate a gennop manun, “Suangpi, suangneu in thektuipi tuita in bawmmi bawlsiat in kisi lo, ei leh ei bawlsiatin kisi”, cih paunak na nei uh hi. Kipumkhatna a thupitsakna uh kong gennopna ahi hi. I pu i pate’n, tul na tawikhawm, tual na biakhawm, nekhawm, takhawmin na semkhawm liailiai uh hi. Tuan pupate’ nasep mabante zom siamin, amaute’ totsa lamlui hoihte tawn dah kei ni (cf.

Thukhualna, kipumkhatna leh kithutuahna khaute sausak ni! Cihtakna, thumanna leh hanciamna khetphimte khenkip ni!

Tu laitak ih neih hunte zat siamna-in, mailam khanto nading kipatna siksan/pansan hoih pikhat ahi hi. Mite' nuntakna lapsang sakna-in, nang' nuntakna a sang pen ah hong tungsak hi (By elevating the lives of others, your life reaches its highest destination)
