How differently Evangelicals are perceived in other parts of the world one can see in the fact, that the President of Brazil, Dilma Roussef, asked the World Evangelical Alliance to provide a short word of greeting to be read in the opening ceremony of the world soccer championship. This in spite of the fact, that WEA spoke in favour of the rights of the poor in Brazil, asking government and society not to spend the wealth of the country on prestuge projects but on fighting poverty .

Here the greeting by Geoff Tunnicliffe, drafted by the Theological Commission.
