This weekend, Will Graham is sharing the Gospel during his two-day Baker Lake Celebration of Hope. The free two-day evangelistic event also will feature music by Aaron Shust.
Baker Lake is near the geographic center of Canada.
On Friday, Will Graham held a presentation specifically for the area's youth.
Psalm 95:1-2 declares, "Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving. Let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise!"
Join us in praising God for all the youth who were interested in learning more about God and the love Jesus has for them. More than 100 youth made decisions for Christ on Friday.
When members of the community recognize Will Graham, they sometimes stop him, asking for a moment of prayer. Requests vary, but some recent ones have included physical healing or God’s help to overcome an addiction. Will and his team, honored to be asked, enjoy spending this time with the people they meet.
Excitement was high for these youngsters ahead of Friday's event, which was just for them with music and an encouraging message of God's love.
Friday's special preview included some yummy doughnuts.
Bundled up is the only way to travel through the Arctic temperatures. This weekend, the high won't venture north of 30 degrees and the low will hover around 14 degrees.
Will Graham has spent quite a bit of October in Canada. Earlier this month, he shared the Good News of Jesus Christ in Ontario's Quinte region.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope," God's Word says in Romans 15:13.
The Gospel presentation was captivating for many youth who attended Friday's sneak preview.
The Color, a Canadian-based Christian group, will be performing during the Saturday and Sunday Celebrations with Will Graham.
Prayer is at the heart of this event. Local churches have been praying ahead of the two-day Celebration.
Many Inuit call Baker Lake home and work in the nearby mines. The heartbreaking suicide rate is a concern in this isolated community, and many are praying for Jesus to transform hearts and minds this weekend they way only He can. Would you join in that prayer?
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life," the Bible states in John 3:16.
Please join us in praying ahead of the Saturday and Sunday Celebrations in Baker Lake. Please pray that hearts would be softened to hear Jesus calling.
