At many junctions we are given pamplets with political propaganda. And at least twice a day 50-minute blocks of time on TV are given to showing the campaigning of Brazil's many political parties. We doubt that many people watch that for a solid 50 minutes but...what do we know?!
There are at least 9 people running for President. Of the 3 main ones, 2 are women. Brazil has never had a woman president. For those of you who are interested in international politics, click here to read about it in Portuguese or click here to read about it in English.
Last Saturday morning we received all of this-pamplets, newspapers, bumper stickers, and even a stack of almost 100 little papers for US to hand out! Thanks, but no thanks.
Well, we can't vote here and we can't even tell others for whom to vote but we can pray for this important Presidential election. It might determine what we can and can't do in our ministries here as missionaries.
Please help us PRAY for Brazil's elections on October 3rd!
