Last year’s Vivid Sydney attracted 1.7 million visitors to the city—no wonder our missionaries there are making special efforts to reach these festival goers!

Vivid Sydney, now in its eighth year, is described as the largest event of its kind, combining light, music and ideas. This year the 23-day festival is running from May 27-June 18 and it’s a beautiful springboard for our Sydney team as they reach out to make the Messiah known to Jews and Gentiles attending the festival. Last year’s Vivid Sydney attracted 1.7 million visitors to the city—as people packed in to see the light displays, hear the music and listen to the talks and debates.

“Definitely we are increasing our street presence, with more sorties [tract-passing expeditions] than usual,” said Bob Mendelsohn, Jews for Jesus Australia director.  “We created a ‘Vivid quiz’ broadside to hand out and a special landing page on our website where people will find lots of links to articles and photos tying in with the Vivid theme.  We launched a social media campaign on Tuesday that we hope will bring people to the site, along with the links on the print literature we’re giving out.”

Please pray for our Sydney team, that God will bless their “vivid story,” and that many will want to know more about Jesus, the Light of the World.
