English

We can say that Tripura is the state where the Missions Department first started their ministry. The UPC Church was established in the state in the year 1968. The founders were L. Vankhuma, L. Biaka and Biakliani. These three members heard and accepted the UPC doctrine through Rev. J. Damhuala’s and Rev. Lerthansung’s ministry in December, 1967, and were baptized by the Lakhipur pastor, Kawra (Kora) on Jan 14th, 1968.

Then, Subehdar Kapthuama and his members in South Tripura appointed Bro. L. Vankhuma with a salary of Rs. 200/- per month. (As Mr. Kapthuama was an active member in the UPC, salary was given from the members’ offerings). Then in 1974, the General Missions Department aided them with Rs 50/- a month. According to L. Vankhuma, he was the first to be appointed by the Department. Rev. H. L. Ruata became the Tripura District Pastor in 1972. The Missions Department also continued its ministry within the District; but as difficulties later arose in the District, the entire state of Tripura became a Missions Field.

Tripura was again declared a District on 10th May, 2010 (Sunday). The opening and the dedication service of this District was attended by several of the General leaders as well as the different District leaders.
