Noah's Ark: An Experience of Hope at the Olympic Games

"This week as thousands gather in Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Games—an unexpected sight is...Noah’s Ark?

A replica. But one that’s hard to miss. . .at over 95 feet wide, over a football field long and 75 feet tall!

In 2008, Johan Huibers, a Dutch carpenter and contractor began his replica that has become a popular destination for thousands of visitors every day!

And recently seaworthy—as it traveled on barges across the Atlantic for an extended visit to Brazil—in time for the Olympic Games.

It’s Huibers hope that the ark’s story will bring a sense of hope and encouragement to underprivileged people in Brazil and in other ports in North and South America—bringing a biblical artifact to life!

Each family visiting the Ark receives a Bible in either English or Portuguese.

The Bible: Impacting the 2016 Olympic Games!"
