Advancing the Gospel

Dear Friend,

Each time we preach the life-changing Gospel at an evangelistic event anywhere in the world, God works through your prayers to open hearts and He uses your gifts to help us carry out the task. We are deeply grateful.

I have completed our Decision America California tour, where I preached the Good News of Jesus Christ in 10 cities throughout the state. In August, I will return to the U.S. West Coast to preach in cities across Oregon and Washington on the Decision America Pacific Northwest tour, and I ask for your prayers.

Between now and December we have Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) evangelistic events planned in 22 more cities in six different countries. My son Will Graham has recently returned from Australia where we saw God do a great work in hearts during a three-day evangelistic Celebration. He also led a gospel Celebration in Scotland in mid-June. It was greatly blessed by God – so many attended and so many saved. Pray for him and two other BGEA associate evangelists – Robert Cunville in India and David Ruiz in Mexico, who have several evangelistic events coming up. See the full list on the back page.

After my Pacific Northwest tour, I will go to Blackpool, England, for a Crusade in September. Blackpool is a place of great spiritual need. The city has the shortest average life expectancy in England, and alcoholism and crime are common. Churches there have invited us to come and share how Jesus Christ can change hearts and transform lives.

Thank you again for your partnership in helping “to advance the gospel” (Philippians 1:12, ESV).

May God richly bless you,

Franklin Graham
President, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
