Liberdade—Exodus Cry’s initiative surrounding the 2014 FIFA World Cup—was designed to bring freedom to the women and children trafficked in Brazil. Through prayer, outreach, and the training of Brazilian nationals who will serve as abolitionists in their home country, Liberdade provided a foundation for ongoing revival. The effort culminated at the start of the World Cup in June 2014 when more than 500 churches across the country gathered for the 31 days of the games. During this time, they joined us in prayer and reached out to more than 1,500 exploited persons in prostitution zones around the country.
Today, fueled by Liberdade, a grassroots movement of abolition is beginning to arise in the nation of Brazil. By using active prayer, awareness campaigns, and outreach to Brazil’s most vulnerable, these new abolitionists are on a mission to set the captives free.
We believe that the power of prayer can result in change. Your prayerful partnership with us was critical to our Prevention, Intervention, and Restoration work in Brazil. Your intercession was key as we dispatched teams to raise awareness, led outreaches, and called for an abolitionist movement in this nation. Together, we declared freedom for the oppressed and shined a light on modern-day slavery in Brazil. Thank You!
