Teresa is doing ladies ministry and teaching the children. They are now fundraising for the building where they can housing their ministry.
Ministry History: Fernando was raised in Toronto, but always had a heart for Portugal. After he finished college, he went to live in Portugal for several years to learn the culture and the language. While there he met Teresa and got married. Fernando has degrees in Christian Counseling and Education. Since 1996 Fernando and Teresa had the privilege to work alongside with Portuguese speaking churches in Ontario pastoring, teaching and helping families with many issues.
