In a review of its 2014 efforts, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association reveals that it has shared the Gospel with close to 9.5 million people around the world through its outreaches. More than 1.6 million of those people have made a decision for Christ, reports the BGEA.
Those outreaches include BGEA collaborations with local churches in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia to hold large scale festivals and celebrations. BGEA President and CEO Franklin Graham and his son, Will Graham, also preached the Gospel at functions hosted in parts of the United States, Canada, Japan, Sri Lanka and Papau New Guinea.
Franklin Graham praised God for the BGEA’s efforts in a recent letter. He wrote “Our hearts overflow with gratitude to God for all He has done and is doing, and we are eager to keep pressing forward as He continues to open doors.”
Other 2014 accomplishments include chaplain intervention in racially-divided Fergusion, Missouri. Crisis-trained chaplains from the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team served amid the turmoil and unrest following the August killing of Michael Brown, meeting with St. Louis locals including Michael Brown Sr., praying for the violence to end, and in one instance, marrying a Ferguson couple whose home burned to ground.
The chaplains also responded to natural disasters in the U.S. and abroad.
