The following tribute was written by Pastor John Thomas about the life and funeral service of Pastor Phillip Mokson:
The last 17 days have been days filled with pain and tragedy as we have sought to work through the murder of Pastor Phillip. There have been difficult days of deep, dark valleys and the fog surrounding his tragic death has caused us at times emotionally to fail to see our way ahead. Despite that I've been extraordinarily conscious of the peace of God that passes understanding and the comfort that the Holy Spirit. I have no doubt that many prayers around the world have helped sustain all of us and particularly the Mokson family at this time. Thank you for your prayers, your emails of support and encouragement. It has meant so much. We have kept every single email and are cutting and pasting it into a scrap book type file for Minah, Nolifa and Nomzamo and the grandchildren to be able to keep and reflect upon what you have said about Pastor Phillip. Some of you have not written but have given generously and for that we thank you.
You are aware of what took place on the tragic night of the 22nd January 2007
