FIFA Fan Fests are public viewing events organized by FIFA and its partners, which allow people to watch the FIFA World Cup with thousands of fans from all around the world. The locations are large enough to fit many thousands of people and feature gigantic LED displays that broadcast the matches LIVE.
For the 2014 World Cup, the Fan Fests are holding in each of Brazil’s 12 host cities. On Tuesday, June 17, 2014, partners of the Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD visited the biggest FAN FEST in the country at Sao Paulo during the Brazil – Mexico match. The event turned out to be a carnival, as over 30,000 fans from all over the world gathered at Anhangabau Valley.
Excited at the prospects of reaching so many people at once with the Gospel, the partners began working immediately. They distributed copies of Rhapsody of Realities to the fans one-on-one. In a short while, they had distributed 30,000 copies, and the people were still asking for more. Most of the recipients were particularly excited to have the devotional in the Brazilian Portuguese language.
The free distribution at the FIFA FAN FEST in Sao Paulo was truly very successful, but Rhapsody of Realities partners are not resting on their oars; they have made arrangements to bless soccer-loving fans in other cities in Brazil.
