New Missionaries From Angola

We figured it has been at least 4 years since there have been any Elders called from Angola to serve full-time missions. We've had 4 Sisters return recently, but there have been no Elders. Not anymore! This past week 2 young men received their mission calls with more working on submitting their papers. We started the Missionary Preparation Class on Sunday and there were 8 in attendance and we know of many more who will be coming in the future. Elder Celestino Bula was called to serve in the Cape Verde Praia Mission. He leaves in April. Elder Maer Carvalho will be serving in the New Zealand Wellington Mission come July. Our zone leaders, Elders Bauer, Anhanha and Richter are just as excited for these two missionaries as they were for their own call! This is just the beginning of faithful Angolan missionaries called to serve throughout the world!

  1. Once again, i could fell the real love of God!
    He called my son to New Zealand; im sure he will do a great work for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints. I Know there are people waiting for Maer, just to repent, be baptized and come to the Savior that is with his arms open to hold them! I thanks God to be mother of Maer! I thanks God for all missionaries around the world! I love this Church! I love Jesus Christ and His father, our God and father too. Im so grateful, because God heard the words of my mouth, in name of Jesus Christ!
