Alumni Asung & Nim: Ministry Updates May 2024


Alumni Asung and Nim Pharung from Manipur, Northeast India, has sent their ministry updates below.

I am writing this update after 11 months. Some of you might still remember the last update sent by my nephew last year in place of me as there was no internet in my region. We are slowly getting back to normalcy now after curfews, police sirens, bombings and guns.  The Lord is our Shepherd. He led us on a safe path.

Family – Our daughter Yunri Anna continue to homeschool due to her health problems, our son Masan is in 2nd standard and the little one Selah in a pre-nursery. Life is getting busier each day, but the Lord is faithful!

Recently, our church celebrated a cultural day – looking back to our past before Christianity and how we are today through the Gospel of Christ. This family picture was taken on cultural day with our modern traditional attire. This event has reminded us the faithfulness of God and His plan for salvation to all mankind.

“Big teaching privileges but little time to prepare” – From the time I graduated from seminary, thousands of doors open to teach and preach. I prayed God to give me more time to reflect and prepare… The Lord has reminded me once again, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few.”

“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth” – Camps after camps, connecting with youths in every possible way. “I can’t move on” said one of the campers in the youth camp. When he started pouring out his life issues into broken pieces, it was hard for me (Asung) to control my emotions. I prayed God to give me strength to find a refuge for him and He did it. He accepted Jesus as his Lord and Saviour. He is now leading a prayer cell.

There are hundreds of stories to tell from the campers, I wish I could write down everything… they are all a blessing.

“The church we are pastoring” – This church is one of the oldest Tangkhul church in Imphal valley, it was founded in 1984 where there was no development in the area. Now, the government has claimed the land and planned to demolish it as we had no proper land documents. This church has been serving the community for 40 years now and has grown to 400-500 members attending every Sunday Worship.

The area has been demolished and has now become a new construction area. Recently, the church was completely flooded as there was no proper drainage. Only this church is standing due to injunction order from the Court. We are uncertain how long more our church will stand; we have been negotiating with the government to spare this church. We leave everything in God’s hand, and we believe God will provide a place for us to worship Him.

Please continue to pray for the church, the Manipur government leaders, chief minister N. Biren Singh and his cabinet to spare this place of worship.

“Our community Library” – Miracle Worchum has been serving the community since 11 September 2020. We are greatly blessed by many kids coming to read instead of spending their time on screen at home and that is the purpose of this library. Nim and her team are doing their best to make this ministry successful. Many books have been added to our library this year through the support of our individual friends and families, and also from CruMedia Singapore. We are so grateful to God for raising supporters to this humble library ministry project. For the sustainability of this project, we are also exploring a Child Care adjacent to the Library starting this year. Please do let us know if you want to donate books for this library.

If you would like to contribute to Asung’s ministry or upcoming family financial needs, please email us at: and we would provide you with the necessary details.
