My friends, what you are seeing on TV about Brazil is true. One of the most peaceful countries in the world got sick and tired of our corrupt government. The World Cup’s huge fancy first-world stadiums built with people’s money while our public schools and hospitals are falling apart was one of the main triggers to what you are seeing on the news.
In Recife yesterday about 100,000 people filled the streets. And all over Brazil people are protesting (of course in something so big, criminals who want to vandalize get mixed in with those who are truly concerned about their government). The people are against this violence. But unfortunately it is happening.
Please, if you have the chance, say a prayer for our country, our people and our authorities, we certainly need it!”
“When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;
when the wicked rule, the people groan.
By justice a king gives a country stability,
but those who are greedy for bribes tear it down.
The righteous care about justice for the poor,
but the wicked have no such concern.”
Proverbs 29:2, 4, & 7
