Decision America Tour: Photos from Hawaii

By   •   February 25, 2016

Franklin Graham's 50-state Decision America Tour stopped in Honolulu on Feb. 24. An estimated 2,100 people came to the Hawaii State Capitol to join their fellow Hawaiians in praying for America.
Honolulu marked the tour's seventh stop before it heads to Denver, Colorado, on March 15.

Making a bold statement.
Many along the tour have talked about wanting a more godly America for future generations.
Together, we're stronger: a message echoed by many who attended the rally.
Many who attended came as a group with people from church.
Franklin Graham told the crowd how to text their pledge to God and country.
So many youth came out to the rally.
Capturing the moment.

“God bless the great state of Hawaii," Franklin Graham said before he left the stage.

Twenty-year-old Emily Abang had a poetic take on the day's event. “Being a Christian isn’t easy," she said. We all deal with a degree of brokenness, she added, but when we come together, God can take that brokenness and make something beautiful. “We can change the world,” she said.
Proud to volunteer with the Decision America Tour.
About 100 students attended a youth rally prior to the main event. Around half of them were from YWAM, an international missionary organization. The students helped set up for the Decision America event, pass out flags and water, and about a dozen served as chaplains alongside the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team.
These four found a seat in the shade.

What would a more godly America look like? Twenty-one-year-old Melody White said more people would care about the bad things going on around them and want to help. There would be less selfishness, she said, and more joy in serving others.
John McCoy went to hear Franklin Graham speak with a couple of friends from his church. He said their pastor is always preaching on accomplishing things through the power of the Holy Spirit, and changing America is no different.
Two prayers; one purpose. Will you join Franklin Graham in praying for the nation?
