CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 13, 2013 – Evangelist Will Graham traveled to Udon Thani, Thailand, in November to hold his final evangelistic Celebration of 2013.

“The abundant life you’re looking for cannot be obtained on your own. That’s why God sent His Son on a rescue mission to save us,” Graham explained to the audience. “Some of you are looking for answers in life. Deep down you feel something is missing. Jesus is what’s missing. He’s the only One who can fill you.”

The event in Udon Thani was Graham’s third outreach in Thailand. Graham’s first evangelistic event in the country, the Chiang Rai Festival of Peace, took place March 5-7, 2010, with 16,000 in attendance.

Last year, Graham returned for the Nakhon Si Thammarat Celebration, which took place at the Municipal Hall in Nakhon, Thailand, Nov. 2-4, 2012. Approximately 4,750 attended that three-day event, with 323 making a commitment to Jesus Christ following Graham’s messages.

His father, Franklin Graham, has also made the country a focus this year and will hold a Festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Nov. 22-24, 2013.

The event in Udon Thani was the final multi-day Celebration on Graham’s schedule for 2013. Earlier in the year he preached in Kisumu, Kenya, Tokyo and Fukushima, Japan – an area still dealing with the effects of the deadly 2011 earthquake, tsunami and subsequent nuclear meltdown.

Graham’s 2014 schedule will include a United States outreach in Clinton, Miss., in March, as well as international endeavors in Sri Lanka, Japan, Australia and Papua New Guinea.
