Franklin Graham Brings Spiritual Message To Southern Border

As part of their border tour, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association held two massive religious events over the weekend, with over 10,000 people from the Rio Grande Valley participating.

The tour, The God Loves You Frontera, kicked off this past weekend with services in Brownsville and McAllen, Texas, and will be stopping in border cities from California to Texas and beyond. A frontera is a frontier in Spanish.

This past weekend, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Reverend Franklin Graham embarked on a ten-stop, one-thousand-mile tour across the United States’ southern border. The people of border towns in California, Arizona, and Texas are the intended recipients of their message of optimism.

Graham is the group’s president and chief executive officer. 

More than a thousand churches will join forces with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on this journey to share the good news of God’s love with the people they meet.

Abraham Moreno, pastor of Calvary Chapel in McAllen, was quoted as saying that the forthcoming events will have live music in addition to a speech from Graham. The goal is to offer hope, purpose, and salvation.

The next stop on Graham’s tour is McAllen.

Moreno claims that the tour offers a message of salvation, restoration, and the chance to know Jesus Christ on a deeper level.

Graham spoke to the audience on Saturday, highlighting the potential for a one-on-one relationship with God via trust in Jesus Christ.

The voyage started in the Gulf of Mexico and will go all the way to Chula Vista, California, in the Pacific.

Billy Graham, an evangelist, founded the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in 1950.

According to the website, it successfully shares the gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide.

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association appointed Franklin Graham its chief executive officer in 2000. He became its president the year after that.
