In the period from 1914 to 1950 Mizo immigrants, some of them Presb, moved into the Kalay and Kabaw valleys in the Upper Chindwin. They were served first by a Bapt missionary and later by Meth ministers. But the Mizo Presb decided to maintain their tradition. Presbyterianism also spread in the Chin Hills. The first congregation was founded in 1956 in Losau village. As time went on, the Mizo Presb Church (cf. India no. 3) recognized that the church in the Kalay and Kabaw valleys and in the Chin Hills needed pastoral care and decided to send Pastor Lalthanga(1959-1969) to serve them. In 1962 the church was constituted at the national level; at that time it had 5,000 members. The church has extended its activities to the Southern Chin Hills, Upper Sagain Division, and Rakhine States.
