LOS ANGELES — More than 600 Hispanic churches in the greater Los Angeles area are joining with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association June 25 and 26 to participate in the "Festival de Esperanza con Franklin Graham," when the son of iconic evangelist Billy Graham will deliver a message of hope for the Hispanic community.

The Festival of Hope will feature nightly messages from the Rev. Franklin Graham, as well as music from popular Christian and Hispanic artists. It will stream live, in English and in Spanish, at the association's website at 10 p.m. Eastern time on June 25 and 8 p.m. on June 26.

"Our hope is that anyone who is struggling with questions about life or would like a new beginning will watch this Festival of Hope," said Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the international Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse.

Since 1989, Franklin Graham has convened an average of seven festivals each year as an evangelist for the Charlotte, N.C.-based association. Festivals remaining after Los Angeles will take place Aug. 20 and 21 in Milwaukee, Aug. 27 and 28 in Denver, Sept. 17 and 18 in Winnipeg, Canada, Oct. 28-30 in Vilnius, Lithuania, and Nov. 10-13 in Hyderabad, India.
