Ten years in Southall

In April, Kailean and Kim Khongsai, from Manipur, North East India, celebrated 10 years of being CMS mission partners in the UK.

To celebrate their 10-year anniversary, Kailean and Kim organised an informal thanksgiving evening at the A Rocha centre with a few local vicars and some close friends.

They sang, prayed together and celebrated with food, and Kailean shared his personal testimony about their 10-year journey.

The event was, said Kailean, a very encouraging and fulfilling celebration worthy of the milestone.

Kailean said: “We feel extremely blessed and grateful to God. There have been times over the past decade when we have faced real difficulties and challenges, but we have learned a lot and feel that we are growing spiritually.”

Seconded to A Rocha UK, Kailean and Kim build bridges among different faith communities through creation care.

A project at the heart of their ministry is Wolf Fields, three acres of land in Southall. Formerly a brickworks, the site had fallen into disrepair and become a local hotspot for fly-tipping and substance abuse.

However, since Kailean and Kim and others started work on the site in 2013, the community has come together and put time and effort into transforming the site.

Over time, as volunteers from all walks of life have banded together, Wolf Fields has changed from a wasteland to a site for the whole community, featuring an allotment, a sensory garden, a community orchard and apiary.
