Franklin Graham“I did not come here as a politician, but as a minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

(Pyongyang, North Korea)—Following in the footsteps of his father and mother, Franklin Graham spent time in North Korea this past weekend, bringing the light of the Gospel wherever he traveled.

He was welcomed on Thursday by Korean Christian Federation leaders, Rev. Kang Yong-sop and Ri Jong-ro, at a special dinner in honor of his visit.

After devastating floods last fall caused a major food shortage in the already oppressed country, Graham’s relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, brought $8.3 million in medicine and supplies to North Korea.

According to the Christian Post report, Franklin’s mother, Ruth Bell, had attended a Presbyterian mission school in Pyongyang, back in 1934, and his father, the Rev. Billy Graham had gone to North Korea first in 1992, and again in 1994.

Making it clear he was there to preach the Gospel and not for any political reasons, Graham stated, “There are understandably differences between our countries. But the overarching theme is the friendship that was established between my father and Kim Il-Sung. My prayer is that this relationship will grow even stronger, and I pledge to do everything I can to make this happen.”

Franklin and his father, Billy, are reportedly the only two Americans who have been allowed to preach at Bongsu Church in Pyongyang.
