The need for funding to complete the next important phase to train Makhua pastors and elders is apparent and we decided to do everything in our ability to help the missionaries to finish their task without having to fret about fundraising. Donations can be made via www.muapulamission.co.za . If you’re willing, you can write your personal(anonymous) commitment towards the God speaks Makhua. Challenge on a card and drop it into the Prayer and Praise box next to the piano.
