During Franklin Graham’s God Loves You Tour in the Tidewater region, more than 35,000 people heard the Gospel, and over 18,000 indicated decisions to receive Christ.
More than 35,000
Franklin Graham and his Billy Graham Evangelistic Association team have conducted evangelistic tours since 2017. They have traveled across 24 states and reached out to more than 440,000 people, with over 27,000 who decided to come to Jesus.
And now, with the tour ending in the Tidewater region, a recent report of more than 35,000 hearing the Gospel is being added to the number.

But wherever they go, the message remains: God loves you!
“Is there an emptiness in your life? Is your life such a mess that you don’t know what to do or where to go?” asked Franklin.
“Whatever the problem, I’m here tonight to tell you that Jesus Christ is the answer if you put your faith and trust in Him.”
The Tidewater Tour included six stops, one in North Carolina, one in Virginia, and four in Maryland. And as the tour wrapped up last week, 7,600 gathered in Edenton, which only has 5,000 residents.
They worshipped God with Christian artists like Newsboys, Marcos Witt, and Dennis Agajanian. And then the saving message of Jesus Christ was preached.
One attendee did not hesitate to receive Jesus after hearing the Gospel. She confessed she was an abused victim and had thought of suicide before. But the Holy Spirit spoke to her and gave her light and hope for the future.
Debbie, a prayer servant, approached her and connected her with a local pastor so that she can continue to grow more in Christ.
Meanwhile, an elderly couple was very moved by the revelation they heard. Franklin shared, “Many of you here are religious, but you do not have a relationship with God. Religion is not enough. You have to be born again.”
They diligently attended church for five years but did not know they had to be born again. So, on that day, they surrendered their hearts to Christ.
The God Loves You Tour will continue for the rest of the year. Check on their website page for their upcoming scheduled events.
