Hosted by Christ Faith Tabernacle within the Olympic hub of London, the platform is led by Dr Sam Mings and his wife of 46 years Sharon the founders of Lay Witnesses for Christ International who have led these Lay Witnesses for Christ International (LEFCI) Olympic Missions since the 1984 LA Olympics.
The flag bearing outreach is this Evening with the Olympians’ and this time will once again have as leading roles, Carl Lewis the Olympian of the Century and Jo DeLoach the 1988 Seoul Olympic 200 metre Gold Medallist along with numbers of others.
In these London Olympics, special invitations have been handed out not only by LWFCI team members in the Bridging the Gap 2012 UK Outreach on the sgtreets of London, but many Christian athletes have been handing flyers to fellow Olympians or by word of mouth.
Innumerable private Bible studies have been held with many Olympians, well away from the Olympic Village, many in the motel rooms of ministry people, throughout the London Olympic Games.
The one to one personal invitation so as to come away from the hype of the Olympic Village has been overwhelming to somewhere quiet, peaceful and challenging to the soul, where many Olympians have found new directions for their lives in Jesus Christ.
It has been my privilege and overwhelming joy to have been involved in not 1000, no not 100, no not even 10, but one very special situation where I laid it upon the heart of another to lead one specific person to the foot of the Cross of Christ. The Lord has answered that prayer magnificently.
Question: How do people come to Jesus? One by one!
