Will Graham
The three-day Greater Fort Wayne Celebration with Will Graham saw much fruit, ending with more than 430 decisions for Christ.

Sunday, Will Graham preached on the story of Adam and Eve, explaining the freedom we were meant to have from the beginning. "True freedom is to as He created you to be," Will said.

"It takes guts" to publicly accept Christ, Will Graham told the crowd Sunday.
counselor with woman
Each volunteer counselor attended Christian Life and Witness courses to learn how to help new believers and answer questions they may have. Often, these trainings even lead to spiritual decisions as people assess how close they really are to God. In Fort Wayne, 175 rededicated their life to Christ while taking the course.

Will Graham
"When God doesn’t do what we want him to do, we get mad at God," Will Graham said. "We say, 'God doesn’t care about me.' But that’s not true. He knows your name. ... He knows the hairs on your head."
I surrender all.

    I thank God for the Grahams’ ministries. God truly blessed his disciples Billy Graham & Ruth with children and grandchildren that will carry on Gods Word to the world. I hate to think of all the blessings we would have missed if God had not planted the seed. God saw a great vessel in Billy & Ruth & their descendents. Thank you Graham ministries & above all Praise God💙
