This is just to inform you what "Semana Missionária" means.

Semana Missionária. It is a kind of "Mission Fest", but the translation is "Mission Week".

To meet purpose two, preachers and missionaries are invited to share their testimonies of calling and their experiences on the mission field in order to express what God is doing in their lives and people they are reaching. Also we have a time for praise for what God has doing in the world regarding missions.
