Magical Brazil Event
*Check out our video below!*
Waves of Brazilian kids walked onto AECA property with a glimmer in their eyes. They were singing and chatting and very energetic as if they were looking forward to this day for a long time. Their excitement level seemed like they were walking into a Disney theme park, but instead they were heading into a Push The Rock event where they would have fun playing sports while learning about Jesus.
On October 26th and 27th of 2023, Push The Rock Brazil held a three-hour event at AECA (Associacao Esportiva Comunitaria de Atibaia [Sport Association Community of Atibaia]) that engaged 300 different kids each day between the ages of six and 11-years-old in a variety of sports activities. The goals of the event were to make God known to the students, strengthen our partnership with the local school, promote PTR/AECA’s weekly sports program, and connect with volunteers. Nearly 30 volunteers were recruited to serve on both days, including two “clowns” who were responsible for talking about Jesus.
We were blessed at Push The Rock Brazil to create this life-changing experience for the kids by playing sports with them and introducing them to Jesus. Hopefully many of the kids that attended will also start attending our weekly programing in Atibaia.
For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4:8 ESV
