Gilberto Évora, a retired Nazarene pastor, district superintendent, and missionary, went home to be with the Lord October 13 at age 90.
He pastored several local churches in Cabo Verde and was the first national elected district superintendent in Cabo Verde. Évora also served as a missionary in Senegal and as a pastor in the Netherlands.
"We pray that the Lord will comfort his family, the church, and community in Cabo Verde, as well as the whole of Africa, as we mourn the loss of a great leader," said Filimao Chambo, Africa regional director. "We celebrate the life of a minister who dedicated all his life to serve the Lord and His people.”
