Pastor Paulo was born in 1981 into an animist family that worshiped trees and spirits. He accepted Jesus in 1992 and was baptized in 1994. He has been serving in the Evangelical church in Gabu under the leadership of Pastor Fona. He has felt that God has called him to be a missionary to the people of Pitche. He has since moved to Pitche and has taken over the pastoral duties. He is still under the leadership of Pastor Fona. He will be taking YWAM’s Discipleship Training School in the fall of 2006 in order to be better qualified to serve.
His desire is to remain in Pitche as their pastor. He hopes to see the church grow and to disciple others to go out and spread the gospel.
