As of 2010, Brazil had a population of over 195 million people. Although 91% of its people consider themselves Christian, “non-religion” is the fastest growing faith group and witchcraft is growing. Most of these Christians have a disregard for discipleship, due to prosperity theology and a lack of leadership models, appropriate training, and unity. The poor population is rising exponentially and the Christian population decreasing in sincerity. There is a sever lack of ministry directed towards children in Brazil: there are 7 million child laborers, 600,000 girls involved in prostitution, and at least 2,000 murders each year due to drug abuse, gang violence, and prostitution.
