BWA President Leads Goodwill Tour
Washington D.C. (BWA) - The Korean Children's choir from Suwon, Korea, which has performed in many countries around the world, was the highlight of a goodwill tour of the Baptist World Alliance to Atlanta, California, Georgia and Texas, led by its President Billy Kim with General secretary Denton Lotz and Alan Stanford, director of Global Impact Churches.
The children's choir performed in churches and special meetings in churches affiliated with the American Baptist Convention USA, the National Baptist Convention, Inc. and the Southern Baptist Convention. It gave opportunity for the BWA leaders to do newspaper interviews and hold several press conferences to explain the ministry of the BWA and its deep desire for the Southern Baptist Convention to remain a part of this global organization.
"The choir gave opportunity for many pastors and laity to hear a message of hope for Christians in the Two-thirds world for whom suffering as minorities, unity is so important," said Lotz. He reported there was strong support everywhere for the BWA and its work.
"Strong voices of support for the BWA were expressed by countless men and women across the USA, "Lotz said, "and Dr. Kim emphasized that we belong together and must present a united front in the face of a secular and non-believing world.
Lotz praised the BWA President Dr. Kim "as a great encourager and messenger for the BWA."
