I am Luther Theunuo Raikhan from Kohima, Nagaland (India). I did my Bachelor of Arts from Patkai Christian College (Autonomus) Dimapur, India, Bachelor of Divinity from Gospel and Plough Theological Seminary, Allahabad India and Master of Divinity from Oriental Theological Seminary Dimapur, India. At the age of 24, God called me to be a missionary, my first missionary journey begin in April 2005 where I preach and teach the Gospel to the non-believers in Nepal (Hindu majority) for three months. Since then, it’s no turning back but to serve the Lord for the rest of my life.
In 2009, I went to Thailand to teach in Kawhtoolei Karen Baptist Bible School for two years and lived with the refugees in a refugee camp called Maela (Maesot, Thailand) where I taught Church History, Biblical Theology, Homilitics, Greek, Sociology and Pauline Theology, for the course of Bachelor of Theology (B.Th) and there are around 600 students. In 2011, on request by Karenni Baptist Association (Myanmar and Thailand) I moved to Mae Hong Son, since at that time there were only 3 Karenni teachers from Myanmar and I taught in Karenni Baptist Association Bible School Maehongson for four years and during my time there were 68 students in pursuing for the course of Licentiate of Theology (L.Th). Karen or Karenni Bible School the students are from Myanmar, since they are oppressed by the military Junta’s they fled to Thailand for their freedom and live in the refugee camps and there are 15 refugee camps in Thailand numbering from 30,000-70,000. Apart from teaching in the Bible Schools, I am also a Pastor and give Pastoral Leadership Training’s in different refugee camps and churches along Thai-Myanmar border across Thailand. My work is not only limited to the refugees from Myanmar but I give Pastoral Leadership Training’s to Thai ethnic groups like Lahu, Lisu, Akha, Mheo etc.
Currently I am working with the Lahu people in Wiang Pa Pao, Chiang Rai (Thailand) teaching English as a volunteer to the needy students who could not afford to pay for their school tuition fees and on the other hand, evangelize to the non-believers at the same time church planting in the remote villages where there are convert Christians and with no pastor to shepherd the newly believers.
I am praying God will send missionaries to harvest the fields at the right time and to work together under the umbrella of Christ, because it is not easy to work alone in the mission fields for several years.For example, the people are converting their religion into Christian faith from different villages and they are thirsty and hungry to know more about the word of God and I alone cannot cover all the villages and the newly churches. If you want to know more about me and my ministry and be a part of my ministry please feel free to contact me, “see contact”. If you are lead by the Holy Spirit and love to teach English, music, preach, evangelism, donate old/new books, English Bible, English Hymnals or in whatever way the Spirit leads you please feel free to contact me and I will let you know how to go through. Together in Christ we can make the world a different place to live in and not to create a new world but re-create what God has done.
In His Care. Amen
