Police crackdown on crime in Brazil’s largest city. Operation Choke, a massive anti-crime effort with no end date, targets São Paulo. Officials say they found 22 tons of drugs in the first three weeks.
The Holy Spirit is working in this region, too. “There is an area in São Paulo [called] ‘Cracklandia’ where hundreds of young people live, and they’re drugged out 24 hours a day. It’s the biggest concentration of crack users in the country,” Helen Williams of World Missionary Press says.
Local Christians use Scripture booklets from WMP to share the hope of Jesus in Cracklandia.
“They went in to share the literature, talk as people were willing to talk or able to talk; the literature [opened] the door. They (believers) could go back and follow up; as they did, there were questions and genuine desire to be out of this (drug-addicted life,” Williams says.
