Bolsonaro & USA Tour in Israel

Brazil’s Bolsonaro meets with US Evangelicals

During his March visit to Washington, DC to meet with US President Donald Trump, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro also met with a group of prominent Christian leaders, including ICEJ-USA National Director Dr Susan Michael. At the CBN-sponsored event, Bolsonaro shared his vision for Brazil and received prayer and commitments of support from the Evangelical leaders.

Bolsonaro told the Christian gathering that he has experienced two major miracles, one that he is alive after an assassination attempt during his campaign, and second that he won the election. He now seeks to move Brazil in a new direction, away from its prior leftist leanings. His main goals include protecting the unborn, reversing socialism's toll on Brazil, and strengthening his nation’s ties with Israel. He is looking to God for wisdom in the face of great opposition.

Dr Michael introduced the work of the ICEJ to President Bolsonaro and encouraged him to move the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem. He explained that his decision to do so was firm, but he was working out the best way and timing possible, to minimise any economic repercussions.

When Bolsonaro—a Catholic—previously visited Israel, he was re-baptised in the Jordan. While there, he noted how much the small nation has prospered despite its few resources and how it serves as a role model for Brazil, which has much greater resources.

The meeting was closed in prayer by Dr Pat Robertson of the Christian Broadcasting Network, who prayed for Bolsonaro to be anointed by the Holy Spirit, protected, and strengthened for the challenging years ahead.

 

ICEJ-USA leads inspiring tours to Israel

Over recent years, the ICEJ-USA branch has been arranging and leading numerous tours to Israel. After coming on an ICEJ-USA familiarisation tour last year, Pastors Murphy and Twila Matheny of Cedar Lake Church in Biloxi, Mississippi asked our US office to help them plan the first Israel tour for their congregation. In March, the group had a wonderful time of fellowship and faith-building as the Scriptures came to life in the Land of the Bible. Several experiences really stood out, including this incredible moment captured on camera at the Yardenit baptismal site as several members prepared to be baptised in the River Jordan (Photo courtesy of Betty Ladner). Then, during their visit to the Western Wall in Jerusalem, a member of the group who had never surrendered her life to the Lord was overcome by His presence at the Kotel and asked Jesus into her heart on the very spot. Meanwhile, ICEJ-USA National Director Susan Michael helped organise and lead a recent tour of the Holy Land for the mega-church she attends, the Calvary Chapel of Ft. Lauderdale, led by Pastor Doug Sauder. The 140-person tour was a great success and many lives were touched and changed forever.
