Liz and Sergio are serving in Beira, Mozambique. They are working alongside the Mozambican Baptist Convention helping to build capacity in youth ministry and community projects. Liz and Sergio met in Brazil when she volunteered with YWAM during her university holidays. Sergio was already working as a mission worker with them. After marrying in 2007 they continued to work in Brazil for another year and then both felt called by God to do some Christian work in England. As a result they have spent three years as youth pastors at Saffron Walden Baptist Church, which is now their sending church. Liz and Sergio knew moving to England would not be long term as they had always felt a call to mission overseas. So when their time at the church ended in 2011, they felt it was right to seek opportunities to work with BMS. They moved to Mozambique in 2013. They have two children, Chloe and Joshua.

    How Mozambicans party!!
    Posted by Liz and Sergio Vilela at 21:19 on Oct 30th, 2017
    Mozambicans love to party. Two weeks ago we celebrated the first anniversary of our Church becoming official. To start off, we had a service with lots of singing and dancing. Then we shared a meal together of rice, beans, chicken, salad, cake and drinks. Then after the food, it was time to dance.

    The start of our epic 3 week journey around Mozambique
    Posted by Liz and Sergio Vilela at 18:08 on Jul 31st, 2017
    We left Beira on Sunday 16th July and our first destination was Quelimane, 478 km from Beira. This is roughly the equivalent of London to Newcastle, which Google maps says takes approx 5 hours. We knew that we might not get there in 1 day, with 2 small children in the car and knowing that the roads
