Here are a few sites where we got our information if you want to research it yourself:
Good Old Wikipedia
CIA World Factbook
US Department of State
Nations Online - lots of links
Lonely Planet Guide
Church News - Mozambique Maputo Mission created in January 2005
Church News - new mission president
Mission.net - alumni site
Finally, Elizabeth has a family friend (or a friend of a friend) who set up a blog sharing their mission experiences in Angola - Mission Blog. Isn't the internet amazing?? We'll be sure to keep you posted as preparations continue!
P.S. I just discovered that the newest link on the side of lds.org is an interview with Elder Holland on the church in Africa - Unto All the World: Emerging with Faith in Africa. I love little miracles and tender mercies like that.
