About Rui Pedro

I was born in a typical Portuguese home, Catholic, but not practicing.
My first contact with the Gospel was in Esmoriz, at the Biblical Center in 1982. I remember that at that time I made no decision and only came to do it at a year-end camp in the Word of Life in 1985-86. From there I got involved in my church in Valadares and in the year 1988-89 I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute in Portugal. I returned to my church where I served as a youth leader until I was challenged to join the full-time Word of Life Portugal team, which happened in February 1991.

About Sandra

I, was born in Sines; my parents accepted Jesus when I was 8 years old. I began attending church and camps, but I did not accept Jesus until I was eighteen. One Sunday afternoon, at my church in Sines, the pastor in a preaching answered all the doubts and questions that I had in my mind that prevented me from seeing the light of the Gospel.
In 1991, I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute in Portugal where I met Rui Pedro who was already a missionary. That year we began a dating engagement.
We married in 1994 and have two children, Daniel and John. They both know Jesus as their Savior from a very young age.

John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
