ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany couple will be in Rio with a greater purpose than just watching the games.

Fred and Joyce Jones love the Olympics nearly as much as they love sharing the gospel. They're getting ready to attend their 5th Olympic games.

They'll be with a group of Georgia Baptists who will talk about Christ as they swap pins with visitors.

They feel the conversations will be easier this time with the famous Christ the Redeemer statue nearby.

"How easy its going to be to say to someone I would like to tell you about this person and look up at this huge statue," said Joyce.

The couple has hundreds of pins and look to add to their collection over the next few weeks.
