 Franklin Graham Answers Call From South Sudan to Host Crusade

Evangelist Franklin Graham has agreed to hold an evangelistic event in South Sudan next month, answering a plea from churches in the violence-ridden region who believe that their only hope for their new country is a spiritual revival.

"The churches in South Sudan have asked that we come and hold an evangelistic Crusade so that people will hear the 'hope of the gospel' (Colossians 1:23)," wrote Graham last week in a statement from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. "They know this is the only message that can change lives for eternity and shape the course of their country's future."

South Sudan declared independence a little more than a year ago. Its capital, Juba, sits along the banks of the Nile River. Last May, the government of Sudan, a mostly-Muslim East African nation, began airlifting thousands of people to the mostly-Christian South Sudan, after all ethnic Southerners were dismissed from Sudan's civil service following the country's secession last year.
With increased violence in the region, the countries appear to be on the brink of a full scale war, according to Graham.
