Dear Friend,

In recent years, I’ve had the opportunity to return to England again and again to share the Gospel through the God Loves You Tour. Each time I have preached, I have been struck by the eagerness of people to hear “the grace of God in truth” (Colossians 1:6, ESV). It is such a privilege to preach His Word in this global capital, where as much as 40 per cent of the population comes from another country, and evangelism impacts such a wide variety of communities and cultures.

I’m thrilled to announce that I will return to London for another God Loves You Tour in 2025. Please ask God to strengthen church leaders and believers as they begin preparations soon—and pray for all those who will hear the Gospel during the event.

It has been 70 years since the Lord worked powerfully through my father, Billy Graham, during the 1954 London Crusade at Harringay Arena. This Crusade marked a turning point for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Some of the most powerful follow-up tools we still use today—including the I Am Andrew prayer program and “Steps to Peace With God” evangelism resource—were developed as a result of this outreach. I will always feel a deep sense of gratitude for how God has worked in my life and our ministry through the people of this country.

Please continue to pray that men, women, and children in Birmingham—the Midlands and Glasgow will find hope this June in the promise that “this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1 John 4:10, ESV).
Thank you for your heart to reach people far from the Lord with His truth. I am grateful for you.

As believers, we know that lasting hope is only found in Jesus Christ—but most of us have struggled to find the right words when someone is grieving or in the midst of crisis.

Last month, the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team hosted a Sharing Hope in Crisis seminar in Bangor, Northern Ireland, to equip believers to share the compassion of Jesus Christ with people in the midst of trauma.

The one-day seminar gathered 30 believers in a small town 13 miles from Belfast City Centre. This seminar has never been hosted in Northern Ireland before, but many expressed the need to equip local churches to provide emotional and spiritual care to those who are grieving in their community.

“Especially nowadays when there is such a lack of trust in the church, Christians should be connecting with people in our community who are struggling, to show them who and what we stand for—which is Jesus Christ,” one attendee named Denise* explained. “Training like this can help churches reach deeper into our community and build that trust again by helping our neighbours who are in need.”

The first half of the course focused on understanding grief and trauma and how it affects our behaviour. The second half is designed to give attendees practical tools for ministering to hurting hearts and sharing a message of hope in times of crisis.

For Shirley,* the training couldn’t have come at a better time in her life. She recognised that many of her loved ones were experiencing grief and loss after the recent and unexpected death of a relative.

“When my friend told me about this training, I knew I had to be there because I want to comfort those around me who are suffering,” she said.

Shirley explained that it’s been a tough few weeks for her, but now she feels equipped to share the peace and hope of Christ in her own situation of loss and grief.

“I’m also excited to share this knowledge with others around me, so they can also point others to the Lord in times of crisis. It couldn’t have come at a better time,” she added.


The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) recently hosted a lunch for more than 40 church leaders and pastors at the National Ministry Centre in Coventry.

The sense of excitement was palpable in the room as these men and women passionately prayed for the upcoming God Loves You Tour event in Birmingham—the Midlands. Attendees lifted this evangelistic outreach up to the Lord, asking Him to change hearts and lives with the power of the Gospel.

“BGEA’s track record over decades proves that being involved through the Christian Life and Witness Course, as well as the main event, will enliven the local church and make it more effective in its witness,” said David Spriggs of Quinton Park Baptist Church.

Franklin Graham will preach the Gospel and invite attendees to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ during the God Loves You Tour stop in Birmingham—the Midlands on Saturday 15th June and then in Glasgow on Saturday 22nd June.


Last month in Glasgow, Scotland, over a hundred young people gathered to learn how to share Jesus Christ with others at a Pursuit class, hosted by BGEA. This three-hour seminar is designed to equip young believers with practical skills for telling friends and classmates about the hope of the Gospel.

Before the seminar began, attendees were asked to write down the barriers that have kept them from sharing Jesus Christ with others. One young person said they lacked confidence, another feared being judged—but many wrote that they simply do not know how to share their faith.

“I remember feeling embarrassed when I tried to share my faith in school; it didn’t go well. I then felt ashamed to share the Gospel,” Reuben Morley, youth and young adults director for the God Loves You Tour. “But we’re going to find it a lot easier to share our faith when we focus on our relationship with Jesus.”

This resonated with students Abeo* and Emma.*

Abeo explained that most of his friends are Muslim, which is why he wants to equip himself with effective and practical skills to reach them with the Good News.

“I try to have open discussions about faith and religion with my Muslim friends,” he said. “I want to make sure I speak with respect—that can be hard at times.”

“But it’s important that my friends know the truth about Jesus Christ. I want to see all of them saved by our one true God.”

Emma echoed this. “I talk about my faith with my friends all the time, but it’s not always easy—especially when a lot of them do not go to church or know anything about Jesus,” she shared.

“This seminar has taught me how to start talking about Jesus with people who do not have a faith at all. That can be a hard topic to bring up randomly with your friends, but I want to share Jesus without fear or judgement.”
