Daniel and Maria studied with EMF back in 1973.
Returning to Portugal in 1974, Daniel worked for eleven years alongside his father who was pastor of the evangelical church in the small town of Ponte de Sor. Together, they cared for eighteen mission stations in the surrounding area.
Since 1989, Daniel has been pastor of a church in Paio Pires. Coming to a church with just eleven members, Daniel has seen significant growth over the years.
