Baptists plan outreach during Olympicscomment (0)

August 31, 2000

HURST, Texas — While millions of people will be watching the Olympics on television, scores of Southern Baptists will be among 230 Americans engaged in a massive September  evangelistic outreach to Australia.

Volunteer laymen and laywomen from more than 150 churches are participating in “Reach Out 2000 Sydney Australia” through Lay Witnesses for Christ International (LWCI).

In cooperation with Australia’s Anglican, Baptist and Wesleyan churches, LWCI volunteers  will assist with hosting daily athlete rallies, sports clinics and hospitality centers, as well as distributing tens of thousands of pieces of literature in 29 different languages.

Through nightly “Eric Liddell Rallies,” named after Great Britain’s 1924 Olympian who later became a missionary to China, volunteers and athletes will share the gospel message through music, drama and personal testimonies.
