Tens of thousands of people across North America are planning to invite their family and friends to watch a programme which will touch the hearts of people of all ages.

My Hope America with Billy Graham is a nationwide effort to reach people across the United States with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Following a simple biblical model, My Hope America with Billy Graham combines the impact of video programmes (http://myhopewithbillygraham.org/programs/?) with the power of personal relationships.

Christians across America will open their homes to share the Gospel message with friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors using one of several new evangelistic programs featuring life-changing testimonies & powerful messages from Billy Graham.

According to a news release made available to the ASSIST News Service, after many years of successful Gospel preaching ministry, Billy Graham will bring a new message of hope to the nations. On Thursday November 7, commemorating his 95th birthday, Billy Graham will speak from his home in Montreat, North Carolina.

Through his call to repentance, many people will hear a clear presentation of the Gospel and be invited to come to a deeper understanding of the love of God through the showing of the film called "The Cross."

There are now more than 25,000 churches across North America that have participated in the training, and are taking up the challenge to share the Gospel through their participation in My Hope with Billy Graham.

A Billy Graham profile on the My Hope website, says, "Only God could know the important role Billy Graham would play in world evangelism. From the humble beginnings on a dairy farm to his decision for Christ at a local revival on the edge of Charlotte, North Carolina, to his travels around the world speaking in stadiums filled to capacity, Billy Graham has pursued a singular vision-to share the love of Jesus Christ with all who would listen.

"In doing so he has met with Presidents, kings, queens, celebrities, and everyday men, women, and children. No matter his audience, the message is still the same."

 "Everywhere I go I find that people . both leaders and individuals . are asking one basic question," Billy Graham has said. "'Is there any hope for the future?' My answer is the same, 'Yes, through Jesus Christ.'"

Billy Graham was also quoted as saying, "I have had the privilege of preaching the Gospel on every continent . And I have found that when I present the simple message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with authority, quoting from the very Word of God-He takes that message and drives it supernaturally into the human heart."
