Franklin Graham's Decision America Tour Brings Message of New Life and Hope to California


Evangelist Franklin Graham is out West these days, on a mission to bring hope through one-day evangelistic prayer events across California.

Friday night, Graham posted the results of his Decision America Tour event in Bakersfield on his Facebook page.

"You couldn't ask for a more beautiful night than we had tonight in Bakersfield, CA!  Perfect weather and thousands came out to pack the Spectrum Amphitheatre," the evangelist wrote. "Young and old were there to pray for their state and the nation--and to hear a message of Good News. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Good News for every hurting, lonely, and lost soul. I'm thankful that hundreds and hundreds of people stood at the invitation to receive Jesus Christ by faith into their hearts."

"We praise God for each one of them whose life was changed for eternity," he continued. "They were on their way to an eternity in hell and now they have heaven to look forward to! Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?"

The head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association also reported the results of his event in Oxnard. 

"When the invitation was given last night in Oxnard, CA, for people to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, there was no hesitation," Graham wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday night. "Hundreds stood to their feet to say that they wanted forgiveness of their sins and to put their faith and trust in God's Son, Jesus Christ!"

"The Bible says, "In hi,m we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace" (Ephesians 1:7). This was our third stop going to 10 cities on the Decision America California Tour, and God is working in hearts and lives," he wrote."

Earlier in the week, Graham tweeted about the responses in  Escondido and Pasadena.

"We had great crowds in Escondido & Pasadena this week. Join me tonight in Oxnard, CA, for stop #3 of the #DecisionAmerica CA Tour," Graham tweeted Wednesday.

"We need a spiritual revival; we need an awakening across this country," Graham said in a video on the "Decision America California Tour" website. "The only hope is God."

This is the third year in a row for the Decision America Tour.

"In 2017, I took the Decision America Tour on the road for a second straight year," Graham shared in the video. "We saw God do a mighty work as His Gospel was proclaimed."

"This year we're taking the Decision America Tour west, and we're going to go right up the West Coast, starting down near Mexico, going all the way up to Canada, and we're coming to pray," Graham explained.

"And I'm going to be presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ," he said. 

The events are free and will feature live music from Christian artist Jeremy Camp, inspirational country artist Dennis Agajanian, and many others

"Bring your unsaved friends; please join us; be a part of it," Graham said.
