Let Ed preach in the USA!

This petition had 1,799 supporters

I have been an ordained Christian minister/pastor for 20 years. For the past 12 years I have been serving Global Awakening ministries in Brazil. Since 2012 I have become a Global Awakening's Speaker/Evangelist. I have preached in many American churches since 2007. We have come in and out of the country preaching the Gospel for 10 years now. In 2012 my wife Dani and I started a church in Rio, Brazil. We are happy to report that the church has grown to ove 300 members and it is doing really well. Recently Sony Music has contacted us and invited our worship team to sign up a 5 year contract with them. Global Awakening has requested a R1 Visa for me and the Immigration office in the USA has granted it!

So, what's wrong? Well, the American Consulate in Brazil won't let me get a visa to travel to the USA. I have started this petition in a desperate attempt to try to get the immigration authorities to pay more attention to my case. Please help me in this endeavor. Sincerely yours, Ed Rocha.
