Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro joined the 140,000 young people who attended The Send 2020 in Brasilia, Brazil.
Although not directly invited, Bolsonaro showed up because "he wanted to be there for the historic event," reports Fox News.
The crowd of thousands applauded as Bolsonaro took the stage and asked for prayer. He also declared that he believes in Jesus and that Brazil belongs to God. Watch the powerful moment in the video in this article.
The event was spread out at three stadiums: Brasilia Nacional Stadium, Morumbi Stadium and Allianz Parque Stadium in Sao Paulo. An additional 1.7 million watched the event through livestream.
The coordinators of the event included Youth With a Mission's Andy Byrd, Todd White with Lifestyle Christianity, Circuit Rider's Brian Brennt, Michael Koulianos of Jesus Image, intercessor Lou Engle, Daniel Kolenda of Christ for All Nations and the Dunamis Movement's Teo Hayashi.
"The outpouring of healing, miracles, signs and wonders was mind-blowing, the display of God's power in all three stadiums," Byrd says. "This whole event was about the exultation of Jesus and the empowerment of the 24-year-old, equipping the next generation to change the world."
Last year, The Send drew around 60,000 attendees in Orlando, Florida, with another 250,000 watching online. The goal of the event was to declare "war on inaction" and catalyze Christians to share the gospel, according to the organization's website.
The Send began after intercessor Lou Engle and his team felt the Lord was fulfilling the mission of The Call, an event that occurred annually for 18 years, and focused on equipping believers to intercede for revival.
