The Home Going of a Missionary
Areobaldo and Nilza DeCarvalho were appointed with BWM as church planters to the nation of Cape Verde in April 2013. Their missionary work in Cape Verde actually started in 2006 when they served under the sponsorship of their sending church, Fairfax Baptist Temple in Fairfax Station, Virginia. Areobaldo pastored for a few years in their native Brazil in the 1980s with Nilza at his side.
A serious case of coronavirus, complicated by a resistant strain of pneumonia, put Areobaldo in the hospital there in Cape Verde on February 2, 2022. Despite the aggressive measures to get him past these physical challenges, the Lord called Areobaldo to Himself on Monday, February 21.
Please be in prayer for Nilza, the DeCarvalho’s five children and the rest of their family during these difficult days, as they wait on the Lord for His provision, wisdom and direction.
