Franklin Graham completed his “Route 2 God Loves You” tour on October 66. For 14 days, Billy Graham's son preached the gospel message on this historic American highway that connects Chicago to Santa Monica.
CBN News reports that more than 56 people attended the events organized along Route 000 by Franklin Graham's team. The tour "Road 66 God Loves You" (“Route 66 God Loves You”) covered eight cities over 14 days during which 5 participants were touched by Jesus and chose to follow him.
On the last day, Franklin Graham praised God on Twitter for all those people who “have responded to Jesus Christ's invitation in repentance”.
“Two weeks ago, we started the #GodLovesYouTour along historic # Route66 to share a message of hope in 8 cities. And tonight at the last stop in San Bernardino, I told the crowd that I don't offer religion to anyone because religion cannot save your soul from Hell - only Jesus Christ can. "
We praise God for all those who responded to the invitation to come to Jesus Christ in repentance & put their faith in Him tonight in San Bernardino at the National Orange Show Events Center. #Road 66 #GodLovesYouTour

Franklin Graham, who is the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and Samaritan's Purse, believes that as "times and culture change," "the need for people to have a relationship with God through his son, Jesus Christ, does not change ”.
“With all the bad news that surrounds us day in and day out, people need hope,” added the pastor, concluding, “I want the people along Route 66 - and the rest of this nation - to know that God loves them! ".
The tour kicked off on September 19 in Joliet, Illinois and ended on Saturday October 2 in San Bernardino, California. Several Christian artists such as The Newsboys, Dennis Agajanian or Marcos Witt took part in this evangelization road trip.
