Malawi - Dedza District - Mua Parish
Telesphore Mpira is one of the several brothers of Thomas Mpira who have also established themselves at Kungoni Centre. This baptismal font is in a state of some disrepair. However, it is lavishly decorated with plants, which suggest the work of cultivation that is placed upon the family and godparents if the newly baptised is to grow to the full life of the Church. A similar font, in better condition, is to be found in the Parish Church of Molere Parish, Chikwawa Diocese.
