Universal Church of the Kingdom of God Brazil - - - - 1996 *LINK* Mariz, Cecilia Loreto. In the Power of the Spirit (Chapter 4: "Pentecostalism and Confrontation with Poverty in Brazil "). Edited by Benjamin F. Gutierrez & Dennis A. Smith, published in 1996 by PC(USA)WMD AIPRAL/CELEP, pp. 129-146, Translated by Peter Kemmerle. This information prepared for Religion Online by Ted & Winnie Brock. (Viewed, Google cache, 30 July 1999) "In fact, the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, the second largest Pentecostal church in metropolitan Rio de Janeiro, and perhaps the second largest in Brazil in terms of church membership, has identifying characteristics, such as the size of its temples, its relation with a television network, its controversial bishop, its emphasis on fighting Afro-Brazilian religions, its emphasis on exorcism, the theology of prosperity, and asking for contributions. It also has a notably lower level of biblical education among both pastors and the faithful (Pereira, 1995). "
Valley of the Dawn Brazil - - - - 1997 Heinrichs, Ann. Brazil ( "Enchantment of the World Second Series "). New York: Children's Press (1997), pg. 98. "In a suburb of Brasilia live several thousand people who expect to survive the end of the world. They belong to a religious movement called the Valley of the Dawn. Their community, with its huge temple, is also named the Valley of the Dawn. A retired truck driver named Aunt Neiva founded the sect in 1959. She taught that a lot of ordinary people are mediums--people who can communicate with the spirit world. Mediums are easily to spot in the Valley of the Dawn--male mediums wear black shirts and the women wear long robes with star-shaped sequins. Aunt Neiva also predicted that the world would end at the end of the millennium and that only a chosen few would survive. Residents of the Valley believe they are among the chosen. Hundreds of worshipers come into town for Sunday services. They, too, hope to prevail beyond the last days. "
