January-February 2019 – In early October 2018, Franklin Graham spoke before 16,000 people in the packed arena for the Festival de Esperanza. Over 500 churches prayed and participated in the massive meeting.
“We praise God that hundreds of people responded to the invitation to turn from their sins and trust Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord tonight in Monterrey, Mexico,” said Graham. “I told the full house at Arena Monterrey that there was nothing more valuable than a soul. Your soul lives inside your body and when your body dies, your soul will live forever in one of two places – heaven or hell. Your soul’s destination depends on whether you accept or reject Jesus Christ during this life. It’s the most important decision you will ever make. The Bible tells us, ‘For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?’ (Mark 8:36).”
