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.

    We are always learning of the many traditions that Mozambicans have and there is one I learn of quite early on when we arrived and I had the opportunity to take part in it recently.
