Portugal is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe known for its ancient architectural structures and complex history. It also has a huge need for the Gospel. There isn’t another evangelical church within 50 miles of the church we’re partnering with. The team will be working with families in a low income apartment complex engaging in various social experiences, community events, and through personal evangelism.
