The Elijah Challenge Mission to Brazil – July 2016
In July the Elijah Challenge will have a team in Brazil to train churches and pastors how to preach the gospel with power as Jesus did and as He commanded His disciples.
Luke 10:9 Heal the sick and tell them, “the kingdom of God has come hear to you.”
Our long-term goal is to train the body of Christ in Brazil to reach its Northeast Region—known as a spiritual wilderness—with the gospel. Whereas the gospel is spreading in other areas of Brazil, the wasteland of the Northeast has resisted the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Prevalent there are powerful witchcraft and various strains of idolatry mixed in with traditional Roman Catholicism. In the town of Juazeiro do Norte situated in the northeastern state of Ceará, for example, “Padre Cicero” is worshiped.
Please pray for us as we train the Church in Brazil this July and beyond. May the Lord make us very fruitful in equipping the churches in the Northeast to fulfill the Great Commission. May He graciously protect us from the Zika virus and keep us in good health throughout.
