Never Before in History

Never before, in the history of Brazil, has there been a time like this.
Brazilian citizens are raising their voices for the government to make major changes.
To read more, check out these news articles - here and here This video is also very informative about the current problems in Brazil.

 Many protests are happening in major cities all over Brazil.  Since the city where we live, Belo Horizonte, is the 3rd largest city in the country, much has been going on here!  Over the last week and a half, many protests have been happening in our city, and especially on the Confederation Cup (soccer) game days. 

The missionaries from YWAM Belo Horizonte have been going to the streets to pray for the nation of Brazil, share the good news of the gospel, and hand out information cards to raise awareness about human trafficking.  These are the cards they are distributing.

Felipe has been participating in these street outreach times.  Here are a few photos, documenting the large demonstration that happened this past Saturday, in the city of Belo Horizonte.

I found this quite interesting.  Some people were bungee jumping off a bridge, and then would hang upside down for a few minutes holding their protest signs.  Talk about being radical!


Please pray...
Please pray for YWAM Belo Horizonte, as various teams go to the streets to share.
Also, please pray for the nation of Brazil.
Pray against corruption in the government.
  Pray for peace, justice, stability, and God's will to be done in this country.
May His kingdom come and His will be done here.

Right now it is a pivotal moment in history.
May the nation of Brazil turn to the Lord more and more, and may God bring the change that this nation desperately needs, through changing the hearts of those in powerful positions.
