10. Some Updates!

Dear Friends,

Hope you are well and excited about the World Cup getting closer every day. How are you doing with preparation for this event? Are you getting ready?

We have been working a little bit in this stuff and want to share with you some of the things we have done so far in the YWAM base in Belo Horizonte. Hope you get some tips for your work here in Brazil!

Pré-Copa (Pre World Cup):

We are working in partnership with local churches doing evangelism around stadiums during some of the Copa LIBERTADORES games (which is the largest championship for South America´s football teams). We started on March 19th and repeated the action on April 9th in the MINEIRÃO Stadium and last saturday (May 10th) in the central square of the city called Praça Sete (Seven Squaare). 

We were a big group, around 300 people, with YWAM staff, DTS students, outreach groups and people from different churches of Belo Horizonte. We did a bit of everything: dramas against human traffic and sexual exploitation; handed out red card, had an intercession group giving out cup of water and gospel tracts; we took banners and balloons; and other things. 

It was really cool! We are scheduled to do this kind of evangelism for more football games before the World Cup begins, so we are well prepared. You can see the photos from our Kickoff on our Facebook following link: or in our photo gallery.

And speaking about Facebook, please, take a little time to visit our FB page, enjoying and sharing our posts about prayer. You can download the match schedule and the infographic "Imagine that." 

Share with your friends and help us to make this a viral communication!

And if you have a testimony to share, or photos to display about the outreaches you´re planning for KICKOFF, send them to us - we´ll put them on Facebook and / or in the YWAM Kickoff website. Share your photos and write your experiences! Don’t waste time! We want to hear from you!


Hélio, from King's Kids, wrote us: "The Gateway is the newest expression of King's Kids, mobilizing national and international teams to do missions worldwide. We want to take the opportunity of hosting the World Cup in Brazil and focus on countries that are coming here. But we also want to bless the Brazilian people that will stay "outside" of the Cup.

"We want to offer a “Gateway” conference in Estância Ávore da Vida, located in Sumaré – São Paulo, as part of training and outreach for the Cup, too. Although the date is towards the end of the championship, we are encouraging teams that will participate in our conference to go to Rio de Janeiro after the conference, where the final matches will be played. I believe everyone's eyes will be on Rio during the last week of the Cup.

“The teams we are inviting are not just King's Kids, but also DTS outreach teams, other missions organizations, churches, etc. The idea is that teams begin or finish their outreach with our conference. We’ll get teams to evangelize before, during and after the World Cup. For more information, write to, or visit our website: “.

Hope you get some tips from these plans we have developed or get some prayer points to guide your intercession for Kickoff 2014! 

We believe the important thing is to work together, united in one mind and one heart... Our Father God´s mind and heart!

Johan & Jeannette Lukasse.
