Witness Ministry supports developing congregations by supplementing their teachers’ salaries, and by helping them to guide their congregation members in understanding offerings. With the Pastor’s Fund the CFW supports existing and new ministering opportunities in the church in Mozambique, which experience shortages. These range from direct aid to projects of the church, to the compensation of sent personnel.
Mphatso Synod has several mission areas where new congregations are established. Rev. Khosa was sent by the synod as missionary to establish congregations within the areas. Surrounding congregations have also been incorporated into his ministries. Sometimes even congregations from Lilongwe in Malawi have outreaches to support him with his ministry.
