A ṭan nan, “Mi, ring zawng zawngte u”, an han ti phawt mai a. Duhlian ṭawng chu sawi loh, kan tunlai Mizo ṭawng pawh hi a han ni ta lo phawt mai a. Pu C.Z.

Kan Bible leh Kristian Hla Bu-a dan dik lova “fo” hi chu a zat chhiar theih thilah chuah an hmang ṭhin a. Zosapho zara “reng”(always- Pu Buanga sawi) sawi nana kan hman taka leiah chatuana fak “reng fo” thute pawh kan sawi ta fo mai.
