We and our three children were challenged to go to Africa and started preparation for that. We arrived in Africa in Guinea-Conakry for the first time, in 1995. Later on we moved to Senegal (West Africa) to continue with our ministry, where we had served as part of the Leadership.
Valdecio was involved with national training, helping in the Bible school and was part of the its board in Dakar. We did member care as well. Suzy worked in our headquarter\’s office in Dakar. Due to Suzy\’s illness we had to leave Africa in 2005 and moved to the US for treatment. The 10 years ministering in Africa was a privilege. We do love Africa and do have many Africans friends and we miss them. Now we are currently serving the Lord with NTM as part of the staff at the Missionary Training Center in Missouri.
God by His mercy is using us to multiply new missionaries to serve Him in other countries. It has been a privilege serving the Lord.
