Those who go to Naples these days to attend the ATP 250 Tennis Napoli Cup tournament, scheduled until Sunday at the Arena della Rotonda Diaz, cannot help but notice a special initiative on the sidelines of this event. Almost 200 Jehovah’s Witness volunteers will take turns in the squares and corners of the city who, making use of the now customary mobile displays, will offer free publications that promote the ideals of peace, unity among peoples and a healthier life, which inspire events such as this will see the participation of many tennis enthusiasts from all over the world.
Precisely because of the international nature of the event, special attention is also paid by Neapolitan Jehovah’s Witnesses to foreign visitors. In fact, in each location it is possible to find publications in numerous foreign languages such as, for example, English, Spanish, French, Chinese, Ukrainian, Romanian and Tagalog.
Topics presented in publicly available publications range from “Stress Relief” to “Your family can be happy”, up to the offer of a free interactive Bible course. Luca Ferraris, local spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses, says: “While thousands of visitors come to Naples from all over the world to have fun and watch the sporting event, we want to offer an opportunity to reflect on the important values that are the basis of good behavior and peaceful coexistence of which sport should also be a promoter . We hope that this initiative will make a positive contribution to a highly anticipated event in the city”.
Jehovah’s Witnesses will be present with their mobile displays near the playing fields and in four other points in central areas of the city: Piazza Plebiscito, Via Toledo, Piazza Spaccanapoli and Stazione Garibaldi.
