Next Billy Graham T.V. Special: Taking the Gospel Around the World
Program shares stories from recent international Franklin Graham Festivals in Brazil, Japan and Latvia
CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 7, 2011 – The next television special from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), which begins airing March 7 online and on national Christian networks, focuses on international Franklin Graham Festivals and the impact they have on the communities in which they are held.
“All around the world, people are searching for a path, a way to God. Jesus Christ is the path, He is the way, He is the truth, He is the life,” says Franklin Graham in the program. “We take this message to the ends of the earth.”
The program reports on recent large-scale evangelistic events in Brazil, Japan and Latvia and shares stories from the perspective of local pastors and counselors.
“I’m 58 years old and I’ve been in the ministry for 38 years. I’ve never seen in Brazil an evangelical movement like this,” says Pastor Da Silva of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, where a Festival was held in May of 2010. “Thank God for raising up men with the vision to populate heaven and vacate hell in the name of Jesus.”
