Three stadiums in Brazil had thousands of Christians, including President Jair Bolsonaro, gathered to turn to Jesus and send out missionaries to the world. Fox News reported that Bolsonaro wasn't invited by the event organizer, The Send Brazil, but he showed up at the stadium in Brazil, the nation's capital, because he wanted to be there for the historic event.
Local news outlets called the event the “largest Christian simultaneous event in Brazil's history.”
The leader called the “Trump of the Tropics” received loud applause when he declared that he is a believer in Jesus and that Brazil belongs to God. The event was 12 hours long and had more than 140,000 attendees. The three stadiums were Brasilia Nacional Stadium, Morumbi Stadium, and Allianz Parque Stadium in Sao Paulo.
According to co-organizers Andy Byrd and Teo Hayashi, it took “unparalleled unity” to put together the massive three-stadium event. “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.”
Fox News reported that Hayashi, founder of the Dunamis Movement (a university ministry) and pastor of Zion Church in Sao Paulo, “said the strong emphasis on social justice – reaching college campuses and high schools, as well as adoption of vulnerable children and teenagers – struck a chord with the nation.”
Speakers included Francis Chan, Randy Clark, Michael Koulianos, and many Brazilian Christian leaders. Jeremy Riddle, Dante Bowe, and others also led worship throughout the day.
