God is working all around the world, folks, and if this report doesn’t lift your spirits and encourage you, we don’t know what will!
Earlier this month, thousands of Christians gathered in three different stadiums in Brazil for the “largest Christian simultaneous event” in the country’s history. The most exciting part is that among the attendees was Brazil’s President, Jair Bolsonaro.
Fox News reports:
Bolsonaro wasn’t invited by the event organizer, The Send Brazil, but he showed up at the stadium in Brasilia, the nation’s capital, because he wanted to be there for the historic event, which local news outlets called the “largest Christian simultaneous event in Brazil’s history.”
The leader nicknamed the “Trump of the Tropics” was met with thunderous applause when he declared that he is a believer in Jesus and that Brazil belongs to God.
More than 140,000 people attended the 12-hour event at three different stadiums – Brasilia Nacional Stadium, and Morumbi Stadium and Allianz Parque Stadium in Sao Paulo – with 1.7 million watching on the Portuguese livestream and more than 560,000 on the English one.
Andy Byrd and Teo Hayashi, co-organizers of The Send Brazil, told Fox News it took “unparalleled unity” to put together the massive three-stadium event, in which thousands made decisions for Jesus, committed to fasting, Bible reading plans and missions to the nations, colleges and high schools. The Send Brazil was brought together by seven ministries collectively called “The Send,” which first launched last year in Orlando.
It’s so heartening to see the leader of a huge country coming out, not only in support of this massive Christian event, but also proclaiming faith in Jesus Christ and that the nation belongs to God!
“The outpouring of healing, miracles, signs and wonders was mindblowing, the display of God’s power in all three stadiums,” Byrd, leader of Youth With a Mission (YWAM), said. “This whole event was about the exultation of Jesus and the empowerment of the 24-year-old, equipping the next generation to change the world.”
“God activated a huge evangelical youth church to the great commission and God empowered a generation to do the works of Christ beyond the four walls of the Church,” Hayashi, founder of the Dunamis Movement (a university ministry) and pastor of Zion Church in Sao Paulo, said.
According to Fox News, evangelical leaders – Francis Chan, Michael Koulianos, Todd White, Daniel Kolenda, Randy Clark, Christine Caine, and many others – were joined by worship leaders Lindy Conant-Cofer, Jeremy Riddle, Steffany Gretzinger, Dante Bowe, and others from the United States as well as several prominent Christian leaders in Brazil. In total, an impressive 180 people spoke throughout the day at the event, which took place on February 8th.
Kolenda, whose ministry in Africa has seen more than 80 million come to Christ, declared: “God is on the move in Brazil!”
Caine urged the young people to go forth and tell, saying, “We cannot keep this good news to ourselves. Empowered by the spirit of God, we must make Jesus’ last commandment our first priority.”
When it seems as though the news is full of depressing stories of immorality, perversion, and wickedness it feels good to take a moment to praise God for His sovereignty and goodness. America has fallen away from the principles and morals of the Bible but be of good cheer, this great country is not too far gone for revival. The mighty hand of God is still working and He will turn this nation around.
Continue to believe in God’s power and timing. Pray fervently for America and for Him to work in the life of our own leader, President Donald Trump.
