Festival Victoria 2005 with Franklin Graham

Festival Victoria 2005 with Franklin Graham was held this weekend (March 18-20). The goal of Festival Victoria 2005 was to strengthen the local churches by mobilising the Christian community to assemble as many people as possible to hear the message that Jesus Christ is "the way, the truth, and the life."

Apparently over 800 churches throughout Victoria and across denominations were working together to share Jesus with friends, school mates, neighbours, and work colleagues. Franklin Graham, son of internationally recognised Evangelist Dr. Billy Graham, was the speaker during this three day festival.

Prior to March there had been months of training and preparation through prayer and personal outreach as the churches of Victoria came together in unity to support and participate in the Festival in a variety of ways. Through a simple activity called Operation Andrew, Christians were encouraged and mobilised to pray for and invite their friends, neighbours, and colleagues to the Festival.

I personally had invited 5 friends to the Festival, and was happy to see two of them accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour :)
