Disciples Making Disciples
The Queens Free Methodist Church (FMC) in New York sent a Brazilian missionary couple, Eduardo and Cindi Angelo, to Portugal for the purpose of planting the Free Methodist Church in that country. Their first service was held on October 3, 1999. The Angelos were joined by Cida Matos in 2000, and Portugal became an official Free Methodist Mission District in 2004.
Cindi and Eduardo have planted and pastored two churches near Lisbon since 2000. Spring Arbor Free Methodist Church sent a VISA team to encourage and support their work in 2012. They are now working with a new church project in the center of Lisbon.
The Angelo’s ministry focuses on planting pioneer churches, reaching the lost, training new Christians, and then releasing them to be leaders of small groups and future churches. The fruit of their ministry is revealed in this recent announcement, “The Free Methodist Church in Portugal would like to inform you that in January, 2018 the Souza family will be sent to plant churches and develop leaders in Sao Tome and Principe, Africa. Moisés and Jacione Souza and their two daughters, Filipa (7) and Giovanna, (2), are very special to us. They’re ministerial candidates who have been excellent workers and have already finished the Theological Seminary.”
The Angelos are advancing Christ’s kingdom by making disciples who are being sent out as Jesus commanded, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matt. 28:19-20)
