Introduction / History

The Kokola of Mozambique are mainly an agricultural people. Many of the Kokola in Mozambique heard the gospel when they were refugees in Malawi during the war in Mozambique (1980s). There are churches in the area. Most churches are served by itinerating pastors who may visit the church once every few months. Kokola pastors need to be trained. The churches use either the Malawian Chichewa Bible or the Portuguese Bible.
