More than 1,000 people reportedly turned to Jesus Christ during a recent three-day evangelistic event in Falkirk, Scotland, reports the Christian megaportal invictory.com with reference to the Christian Today.
Will Graham, the grandson of the late Billy Graham visited Scotland from 15 to 17 June, to preach the gospel at Falkirk.
“Throughout the history of mankind there is none like Jesus. He did not sin. He raised people. He healed. He restored sight to the blind. And He’s the one who died for our sins, Graham said during one of the services. Jesus Christ is not dead. He is alive today and He wants to be a part of your life.”
Celebrating hope in Central Scotland was organized by the Evangelical Association of Billy Graham (BGEA) in cooperation with more than 200 churches across Central Scotland.
In the event, which took place from 15 to 17 June, was attended by about 9533 people. Thousands of people from around the world were able to follow the event via webcast and Facebook live.
Hundreds of people decided to follow Christ during this event, and hundreds of others have done the same thing on the Internet and in courses of discipleship.
The event was organized by the American Christian artists, among them Newsboys, The Afters and Aaron Shust. On Saturday the British artist Duggie Dug-Dug headlined events for children KidzFest.
Pastor Michael Rollo Found from Church said that this event will have a positive impact on the Church in the region.
“An amazing weekend. It was fantastic to see all these people come forward. We believe that people will understand that God lives in Scotland — he said — We believe that what happened this weekend will inspire the Church. It’s just fantastic.”
As reported, on the celebration of hope Church in Central Scotland has decided after Graham held a similar event in Petergate a year ago. The Evangelist will also attend a multi-day evangelistic event in Canada and Thailand at the end of this year.
BGEA is preparing to hold another event in the UK at the end of this year. In September, it is expected that the father of will Graham, Franklin, are visiting Blackpool in Lancashire festival of hope. The evangelistic event will be held from 21-23 September at the winter gardens Blackpool.
