7,550 People Accepted Christ
That’s Good News!
A region of South America with a seemingly bleak future heard the hope-filled message of Christ last week.
More than 94,000 citizens of Colombia and Venezuela attended Franklin Graham’s Festival of Hope and an additional 22,000 an accompanying kid-friendly event Thursday through Saturday in Cucuta, Colombia, which is situated on the Colombia-Venezuela border. The city has absorbed a mass exodus of Venezuelans in recent years as that country has faced an economic crisis and a food shortage.
According to the Billy Graham Evangelical Association website, more than 7,550 people accepted Christ.
“We see economic problems in the world, political problems in the world, we see wars, we see hunger, and we wonder if there is a God and if He cares about us,” Graham told the crowd Saturday, a day before Easter.
Jesus, he added, is the answer.
