O Fim

Thank you to everyone for the best two years!!  This mission has been awesome.  We have the best missionaries, the best investigators, the best converts, the best members and the best leaders.  We will miss you all, but we have work to do in Angola.  Stay strong, work hard and the Lord can't help but bless your efforts as you help prepare the people of Portugal for a new temple!!  Obrigadissimo!!

Winding Up

We had the final staff meeting.  How we are going to miss the weekly meeting with our wonderful office missionaries!

The Baptism of Daniel

We've been waiting a while for Daniel to get baptized and it finally happened. 

Coimbra Zone Conference

It's hard to believe that the last Zone Conference of the Portugal Porto Mission happened in Coimbra!

Madeira Hike

One last hike to Calderao do Inferno on Madeira.

The Last Round of Zone Conferences

We've just completed the last three of four zone conferences with the North Zone, Porto Zone, and Madeira Zone.  This week we'll finish up with the Coimbra Zone and the training is over for the Portugal Porto Mission.  Our missionaries are looking forward to many more zone conferences as the Portugal Lisbon Mission!

The Very Last Missionary

Irma Joao arrived from the MTC in Madrid and will forever be remembered as the last official missionary of the Portugal Porto Mission!

Mission Consolidation

Things are moving along for the Porto Mission and the Lisbon Mission to consolidate into one.  There's a lot to be done, but it's going as well as can be expected!

Returned Missionary Visits, Etc.

Many of our missionaries that have gone home are returning to see how the Portugal Porto Mission is doing and to visit members and friends!
