Uganda will make a new tremendous achievement on July 22nd when Rev Dr Will Graham, grandson of Billy Graham visits the country for the Peace and Joy celebrations at Uganda Christian University grounds.
The Church of Uganda announced earlier in June that the renowned Christian evangelist William Franklin Graham IV, known publicly as Will Graham will visit the country as one of several international outreaches this year, other gatherings are to Scotland, Australia, and multiple cities in Norway and Canada.
The highly anticipated evangelist will be in the country from the 22-24th July, 2016.
Will is the third generation of Grahams (grandson of Billy Graham, oldest son of Franklin Graham) to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ under the banner of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
“I’m not trying to be the next Billy Graham; I’m just Will Graham,” remarked the ordained minister on the association’s official website.
“I have a burden in my heart to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If that’s to an arena full of people or one person on the street, I will do whatever God is calling me to do.”
The province of the church of Uganda, UCU, The bible society and Mukono Diocese are fully in preparation.
It was also confirmed that the advance team is already in Uganda, they joined the Archbishop of the church of Uganda together with the Bishop of Mukono, Rt. Rev. William James Ssebaggala, evangelical churches and religious organisations for the grand launching of the Joy celebrations.
Graham will be joined on-stage by several choirs, as well as American soloist Mark Christian who serves as worship leader for Will Graham Celebrations.
