4.1. Fasting prayer: Fasting prayer service is conducted on every Wednesday evening at 5:00pm. Unlike the other years Covid-19 cases are rapidly rising daily all over the world and in order to prevent ourselves we prayed in our own room. One reason we fast is to demonstrate humility before the creator of the universe and by acknowledging our dependence on God.
4.2. Facemask: Since SCMI, AICS unit is self support and self independent, we need to raise fund by ourselves. Therefore, in order to raise fund we made facemask for selling purpose.
4.3. Maintaining Bethel: A clean environment ensures the health and safety of everyone, knowing that we cleansed the surroundings of the Bethel and for the purpose of prayer and meeting we put plastic chair approximately 20 for the college.
Lastly, but not the least we are so grateful to the Principal and staff and all the students for the support and suggestion. Especially I would like to give thanks to Mr. H. Laltlankima, the faculty guide for his kind, and valuable suggestions that we received. Above all, all these activities would not have been possible without the grace of the Almighty God. May God continue to bless SCMI, AICS Unit.
