Decision California Photos: Redding

By   •   June 6, 2018

A man loving on God as the sun starts to set in Redding during Franklin Graham’s 10th and final stop of the Decision America Tour in California.
Throughout the tour, Franklin Graham has emphasized the need for Christians to get involved in politics through voting and running for office, all in an effort to bring godliness to the political landscape.
Multiple families said the tour has renewed their hope for California's future. The Decision America Tour picks up in Oregon and Washington this August. Learn more.
Many youth around the Redding area were unashamed to display their faith in Christ.
A volunteer showed pure joy in helping another learn about Jesus Christ.
Happy to be among the thousands gathered to witness God at work in their state.
Debbie Noel of Fall River Mills said Jesus is the only hope for this deteriorating country, and Christians have a responsibility to tell others about Him. “We just need to pull together and bring God back. He needs to be part of every decision.” That includes the decision to raise the next generation in a Christlike way.
“We need to be a sweet-smelling aroma,” Jeremy Camp told Christ followers in the crowd. He urged them to be a positive example to those around them and not be afraid to claim Christ as their own.
Rod Bowen was encouraged by how many stood at the end of the night to accept Christ into their lives after Franklin Graham shared God's plan to save His people.
Revival can move through this nation as the youth proclaim Christ.
Between songs, Jeremy Camp spoke directly to a 9-year-old named Ruby standing up front. She had been singing her heart out to his song, “Christ in Me.” “I want you to know that God sees you and He loves you and He’s got a plan for you,” he told her.
God also has a plan for all in the crowd, Jeremy Camp added.
"Such a strong anointing in this place,” a volunteer mentioned as she watched the crowd standing up for Christ.

    May the Holy Spirit build a fire under Christians in the three states that Franklin is going to in his venture to penetrate the Blue Curtain. Christ is alive and well in many believers. We have to get busy and tell as many people that we can what Jesus can do and has done for them.

  2. Judy Kincaid says:

    Thank you Franklin Graham for coming to Anderson. What an awesome evening. Our local paper didn’t even acknowledge your rally, what a shame. Praise the Lord for the salvation of so many souls.

  3. Terry Hasapis says:

    Such a wonderful event, encouraging to see how many believe in God. We need so much more of this type of event, brings hope to many! Have been a supporter of Samaritan’s Purse for a number of years, believe so much too in all that they do. This was wonderful! Thank you Graham family for your continual dedication to the Lord and his mission for you to bring his word to all! We love you!

    I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13. I praise you my Lord and I will call on You when I am feeling alone and weak.

  5. Linda says:

    It’s so nice to see these pictures and hear that Franklin has brought more lives to our Dear Saviour, Jesus Christ.
    I’ll continue to pray for the time you are on the road and bringing more lives to Jesus.
    So thankful to have grown up with Billy Graham and now to continue with Franklin.
    Our country desperately needs God.
    Until His return for His people, may the BGEA continue their wonderful works.
    God bless you all and be safe.

    I feel we are so blessed to have Billy Graham’s family to continue what their father spent his life doing: spreading the word. Wish I could have been there with you. But pray that I will be able to soon. I’m praying. God bless you all and thank you for what you do and for sending me pictures and keeping in touch with me. May God BLESS & LEAD YOU.

    I am an almost 64 yr. old who is living out God’s purpose for my life and for Him. I am being called to be a testimony of what God has done in my life with the youth of all ages in my area. I am very humbled by God choosing me to stand up in front of young people who are hurting & broken. I am excited by what God is doing in California! To think that possibly affecting the youth could bring political change in the country gives me GREAT HOPE! I am truly fired up!! Thank you Jesus!!! Thank you Franklin Graham for being His vessel. God bless you abundantly!
