For over 60 years Dr. Billy Graham proclaimed the Gospel around the world supported by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Dr. Graham is now nearly 94 years old and his son, Rev. Franklin Graham is continuing the ministry of sharing the good news as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
Rev. Franklin Graham is also President and Chief Executive Officer of Samaritan’s Purse International, which has stood with the South Sudanese people through the war and is active in helping build a new nation. Samaritan’s Purse International Relief is a non-profit humanitarian organization that has been operating in South Sudan since the mid-1990’s providing relief and support.
In response to the invitation of the Christian churches of Sudan through the Sudan Council of Churches, Reverend Franklin Graham will be conducting a preaching festival called Hope For A New Nation in Juba on October 26 and 27, 2012. The Festival will be held at John Garang Memorial Park and will involve local and international musicians. Everyone is invited to attend and bring their friends and neighbors to hear the message of God’s love and forgiveness.
