(Brazil)–Next, the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo is the fifth largest in the world with nearly 20 million people. Reaching it with the Gospel is akin to reaching a small country, so says evangelist Sammy Tippit. Along with a team of evangelists, he’s looking ahead to a major Christian outreach in July 2004. “They’ve asked us to bring back 400 workers to go into the churches throughout the city and hold evangelistic meetings-go into homes and schools and various institutions and make an impact on the city, then conclude on a Saturday and Sunday next year, with me preaching in a major stadium.” Tippit says because of the enormity of this project, their teams need prayer. “There’s a lot of spiritism in Brazil. On the positive end, there is a great hunger. The church is really growing; God is really moving. It’s one of the great harvest fields of the world, so, we’re excited about the possibility, the potential. We know it’s going to be a huge undertaking for us.”
