Rev. Dr. Mohzo pointed that their work is to preach and share the gospel of Christ with those that have not heard the gospel or have backslidden.

The President warned them against indulging in any business or act that will distract them from their primary assignment. He urged them to be bold and courageous to preach the undiluted gospel of salvation, as anything short of that will be against them and their callings.
