Liz and Sergio are located in Beira, Mozambique. They are working alongside the Mozambican Baptist Convention helping to build capacity in mission training for nationals and community preschool projects. Liz and Sergio met in Brazil whilst Sergio was a mission worker with YWAM. After marrying, they worked in Brazil for a year before being called to work in England. They spent three years as youth pastors at Saffron Walden Baptist Church, which is now their sending church. Liz and Sergio had always felt a call to mission overseas, so when their time at their church ended, they sought opportunities to work with BMS. They moved to Mozambique in 2013. They have two children, Chloe and Joshua.

      It’s strange but also amazing to see how life continues even after a catastrophic natural disaster. To see how people pick themselves back up again and continue with life in the best way they can. Life for us is quite busy and we are involved in organising and doing some relief work as

    Cyclone Idai!!

    I heard that there was going to be a cyclone in Beira, but I didn’t think too much of it as there had been a ‘cyclone’ in January that had caused some flooding in the city but flooding happens every year. However, this time the team received an email from Rachel, the BMS relief coordinator, r
