Colombian citizens and Venezuelan refugees gathered at a stadium in Cúcuta, Colombia, at the border of Venezuela, to hear Franklin Graham share of message of salvation over two nights this Easter weekend.

More than 400 local churches in Cúcuta joined Graham in inviting refugees and local families. The first night, a crowd of 52,000 people filled the city’s fútbol stadium.

“What a night in Cúcuta! An overflow crowd of 52,000 from both Colombia and Venezuela came out to the Estadio General Santander to hear the Gospel,” wrote Graham on Facebook. “We praise God for each one who made the most important decision of their lives—to repent of their sins and trust Jesus Christ as their Savior.”

“It was Good Friday, and I shared the reason that Jesus came to earth. We are all sinners, and the price of sin is death,” he added. “We all deserve to die, but He took our place. He went to the cross for us where He died, was buried, and rose again on the third day. The Bible says, ‘But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us’ (Romans 5:8).”

The second night, a crowd of 42,500 filled the stadium.
