Bungalow of Pioneer Missionaries
The two pioneer missionaries Rev F.W. Savidge and J.H. Lorrain, who arrived in Mizoram in 1894 and left for Arunchal in 1897 came back to Mizoram as Missionaries of the BMS in 1903 where they first landed at Tlabung and moved north where they then settled at Serkawn, Lunglei. They constructed two Bungalows, J.H. Lorrain’s Bungalow which at present time named as BCM Bungalow No. 1 is reserved for BCM General Secretary and Rev F.W. Savidge’s Bungalow named as BCM Bungalow No. 2 is reserved for AGS i/c Mission. From the beginning the pioneer missionaries employed education and literature as means of evangelisation for the Mizo people. Savidge, a professional teacher before he became a missionary was an expert in identifying potential leaders and training them. Lorrain, on the other hand was a born linguist and he devoted himself to Bible translation and production of Christian literature.
