I need your prayers. Today, I am headed to Brazil for a Gospel Festival in the city of Caicó.
As our team is getting on the plane, we received word about a strike that is paralyzing the country of Brazil.
The truck drivers of Brazil are worried about rising gasoline costs and they have gone on strike. They are blocking many of the roads with their trucks and because of there actions food is not getting to the stores and gasoline is not getting to the gas stations. Empty grocery stores are causing lots of unrest as people worry about what they will eat.
The president ordered to police to clear the roads, but the police disobeyed because they say they are on the side of the truck drivers in the dispute. So, now the President has ordered the military to clear the roads. In the midst of this chaos, many roads are blocked and many airplane flights are being canceled because of a lack of fuel.

So I need your prayers for our Gospel Festival that is happening this week.
1. Pray that our entire team makes it to the city where the Gospel Festival will take place.
2. Our sound system is on a truck coming to the Festival from one thousand kilometers away. Pray it will be able to pass through all the roadblocks.
3. Pray many people will come to the Gospel Festival despite the unrest.
4.Pray the chaos will make people turn toward God and many people will be saved.
