The 2010 Winter Olympic games is being hosted here in Vancouver, Canada! As YWAM Vancouver we are hosting the Winter Olympics Outreach. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us in Vancouver to welcome the world to our city and to welcome all of you to our city "for such a time as this".
Why would you want to send an outreach team to a beautiful, "wealthy" city?
To be honest, there is another side to our city; as beautiful as it is, it is quite dark spiritually. Vancouver is known as one of the least-churched cities in North America, with a lower percentage of Christians here than in many parts of the unreached world. Although we have easy access to the Gospel, many have rejected it. We at YWAM Vancouver long to see our city re-evangelised and this is why we want you to come and join us during this significant global event.
Your base or school outreach is more than welcome during the Olympics, Paralympics or anytime this coming year. We are happy to host you because we believe that God is using these events as a moment to focus not only upon the global gathering but also upon our city.
Please pray about joining us for "such a time as this" in the history of our city, Vancouver.
You can be part of the harvest this coming year - reaching the nations and our city. We look forward to hearing from you!
Director, YWAM Vancouver, BC CANADA
