Evangelist Will Graham returned to the Philippines in February to hold an eight-day, nine-event evangelistic campaign that took place in multiple locations in and around Manila. The Greater Pangasinan-Metro Manila Celebration with Will Graham was held Feb. 9-17.
All told, 149,656 people attended the events, and more than 19,400 responded to the invitation to make a commitment to Jesus.
“Jesus, the Son of God, came for one reason: to transform your life by dying on the cross for your sin and my sin,” said Graham from the stage during one of the outreaches. “Everything points to the cross. The cross is the most significant event in human history. It can change your life tonight.”
This Celebration marked the first time that all three generations of Graham evangelists have preached from the same venue in the same city. Will’s grandfather, Billy Graham, preached a Crusade at Rizal Park in 1977 and Will’s father, Franklin Graham, held an evangelistic Festival in 2006 in the same location.
