From September 19–October 2, Franklin Graham embarked on an eight-city God Loves You Tour along Route 66. These one-night evangelistic events took place in Joliet, Illinois; St. Louis and Springfield, Missouri; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Amarillo, Texas; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Flagstaff, Arizona; and San Bernardino, California.
Franklin shared the Good News at each stop, offering the hope of Jesus Christ during a time when many are struggling with the death of loved ones, loss of employment, or fear of what lies ahead. He invited those who don’t know Christ to surrender their lives to Him and discover His lasting peace.
The most critical thing you can do is pray, pray, pray. The intercession of God’s people is crucial if we are to see a return to the Biblical faith of our fathers, the faith that has guided and sustained our country for so long.Franklin Graham
