Arend Jan & Jacqueline Zwart

Living with God in Portugal - that is our personal goal as well as our desure for the Portuguese.

Arend Jan and Jacqueline moved to Mora in December 2015.

Mora is a place with about 6.000 inhabitants, including surrounding villages. Vitor and Bia Biscaia, a Portuguese missionary couple, already work in Mora since the beginning of the century. Because of their ministry, Mora now has a small, yet growing evangelical church. The church runs a food bank. By doing that, as well as some other activities, the church wants to be the hand and the feet of the Gospel. In order to gain trustworthiness and to build relationships, the church is also actively present at the mercator (covered market). It is Arend Jan and Jacqueline's desire to become a support to the church and to help build the so-called 'Business as Mission' strategy that includes the presence at the mercator.

Arend Jan and Jacqueline are currently taking time to settle, integrate well, and further learn the language.
