YWAM World Cup Events - Week #4

Here are photos from week #4 of YWAM events
surrounding the World Cup games in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

YWAM missionaries, together with local churches, evangelized on the streets of Belo Horizonte after a soccer match.

Moments at the International House of Prayer (IHOP) room here in Belo Horizonte...YWAM and local churches united to pray for Brazil and for freedom for those involved in Human Trafficking.

Photos captured outside the soccer stadium before the Brazil versus Germany game.  This sadly historic game for Brazil actually took place here in the city of Belo Horizonte.

Flash Mob style for Jesus!

During the World Cup season the Rescue team, along with other YWAM missionaries, reached out to a slum community called Vila Uniao.  They held Bible studies, ran children's activities with songs and games, and watched many soccer matches together with the community.  Here are some shots from during the Brazil verses Germany game.

The shock from the score!  It truly was unbelievable how many points Germany scored on Brazil.

A photo taken at a little bar, where several gathered to watch the game.  This game was a very sad and disappointing moment for Brazil, a nation that is known for their love and passion of soccer.

The theme during this YWAM World Cup outreach time has been this,
 "Our passion goes beyond soccer." 
As followers of Jesus, our passion is so much more than just soccer. The heart behind all of the sharing on the streets has been to share this message. Whether winning or losing a soccer game, there is One worth knowing, loving and following.  He gives amazing love, joy, peace, freedom and life abundantly!

Even as the World Cup is coming to an end, we can continue to pray for the many lives who were blessed and encouraged by the various ministry outreaches.  It is our prayer that many would turn their hearts and lives towards Jesus, following Him daily and experiencing His love and grace.  His arms are always wide open to all of us!
