Graham Stirs Romania with Festival of Hope

Ad Feedback

In 1985, Franklin Graham accompanied his father Billy to Romania.

This month, he returned to the former Communist country for an evangelistic event of his own.

The Festival of Hope, one of the greatest evangelistic events of the year took place in Timisoara, Romania, at Dan Paltinisanu stadium.

More than 75, 000 people attended the crusade in person and Romanians from all over the world watched the event on the internet and on television.

Franklin Graham preached the Gospel and almost 4,000 people accepted Jesus as their personal Savior.

The visit was vastly different from Franklin Graham's first visit to Romania during the communist era in 1985, when he joined his father Billy Graham for an evangelistic event..

At that time thousands of people, hungry for the Word of God, crowded in the churches to listen to the Gospel.

Nowadays, Romanians could freely attend the Festival of Hope, rejoice and be thankful to the Lord. It was a celebration of joy, a statement of freedom and faith.
