    This is a fantastic way to lead all to Jesus. Will is a beautiful example of both Billy Graham and Franklin Graham.

    Will Graham, preaching the Gospel of Christ in Alabama! As of now, three generations of Grahams have brought “the Saving Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” to the world. Mankind has no excuses for not following Christ, who is the Savior of this world! Thank You to all the Graham family for obediently sharing the Word of God to our world!
