Let Ed preach in the USA!

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.

URGENT PLEA for Trinh Phan

On July 2, 2017, my aunt Trinh Phan, a non-smoker, was suddenly diagnosed with Metastatic Stage 4 Lung Cancer and Acute Respiratory Disorder Syndrome (ARDS). At the tender age of 33, Trinh is lovingly married to Young Nguyen. They both have an 8-year-old son named David Nguyen. My aunt is currently hospitalized for her terminal illness, intubated, and in critical condition at the intensive care unit (ICU). She has been given less than a few months to live.   One of her final wishes is to be reunited with her mother, Nguyen Thi Hoa, currently residing in Vietnam. The Consulate General of the United States of America in Vietnam has rejected our family's plea for Trinh's mother's temporary visa. The application was denied due to concerns that her mother would not return back to Vietnam and would be a burden to the United States. They claimed that Trinh's mother was unable to convince the consulate that her only desire to enter the United States was to visit her dying daughter. In actuality, this is truly the ONLY reason why her mother urgently needs a temporary visa to visit the United States. We are rallying together community members for support of a plea for Trinh Phan's mother's temporary travel visa. We have reached out to our local representatives and will be sending your support to U.S. Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (California's 19th Congressional District) seeking her assistance of a reconsideration by The Consulate General of the United States of America in Vietnam.  UPDATE (August 21, 2017): Access our plea letter to Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren's office at this link. Access Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren's letter to the President of the United States at this link. Please sign in support to reunite Trinh and her mother during these difficult times. Your signature is a symbol of our community binding together out of love and compassion. We thank you for your prayers. With sincere gratitude, The Nguyen-Phan Family
