On January 13, Franklin Graham visited Los Angeles County, California, where crisis-trained chaplains from the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team are offering prayer at a Samaritan's Purse field hospital that was set up to help with a coronavirus outbreak. The field hospital officially opened January 16 for patients.
Partnering with Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team have hospital tents for 50-plus beds to serve COVID-positive patients. The ministries are also offering care at a COVID field hospital in Lenoir, North Carolina. >> Watch a 1-minute clip of the deployment in Lenoir.
Los Angeles County, is California's most populous county. The region recently passed 1 million confirmed cases since the pandemic began, and more than 15,000 have died in the area.
Franklin Graham greeted this chaplain couple, who's willing to do whatever it takes to share the hope of Jesus Christ. Graham encouraged the staff, "Remember, we’re here for one purpose: We want to lift up the name of Jesus Christ and we want to love the people of this community with God’s love." >> Do you know the love of God? Start a relationship with Him today.
Ahead of the hospital's opening, chaplains ministered to the medical staff and those overwhelmed by the high number of COVID cases. >> Help chaplains offer support to others who need the hope of Jesus Christ.
Please be in prayer for those battling the virus, as well as frontline workers and our Billy Graham chaplains.
