|Partnership for Revival in Brazil|
Sammy and Tex Tippit have just returned from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where they met with leaders and issued a call for a deep spiritual revival in churches. Sammy Tippit spoke to leaders at a three day conference held in the Second Baptist Church of Rio de Janeiro. He challenged the leaders in the spiritual awakening conference in “Desperate Praying.”
He told the Christian leaders from throughout the city that he was encouraged to see a great prayer movement in Brazil. However, he stated that revival would come only as God’s people became desperate in seeking His face.
The American evangelist said, “Revival normally comes when the bottom falls out. Many of us want the spectacular. Or we want instant revival. However, God sends revival to His people when they become desperate. Often God allows the bottom to fall out of our lives so that we will desperately seek His face.”
Many leaders responded to Tippit’s messages. A number of them found themselves praying and seeking God at the close of the services. A spirit of brokenness permeated the audience each evening.
The Tippits also met with leaders of the Mission Nacionais of the Brazilian Baptist Convention. Pastor Fernando Brendao, the new Executive Director of the Mission Nacionais, shared his vision for the next ten years with the Tippits.
He said, “I long for our churches to see the heart of Jesus for Brazil. We hope to start 5,000 new churches in the most unreached areas of Brazil.”He asked Tippit to partner with them in this task. He asked them to consider preaching conferences on revival and conducting evangelistic crusades throughout Brazil to enable a spiritual movement among God’s people.Sammy Tippit Ministries asks our friends to pray for the work of God in Brazil and STM’s place in that work.
