As the world’s fifth largest country in both population and land area, Brazil has become an economic superpower in South America. The country hosted the World Cup in 2014 and Rio de Janeiro was chosen to host the Summer Olympic Games in 2016. From miles of rainforest to world-class super cities, Brazil has it all.
Since 1960, Brazilians have been responding to the Gospel at an unprecedented rate. Brazil is now home to one of the world’s largest evangelical populations. A modern missionary movement has been taking off, with over 2,000 missionaries going out from the country in 2010. Still, much work remains to be done.
