The tropical island of Cebu—and its namesake city—with its blue waters, beautiful coastline and balmy climate, has been called many things. "The Queen City of the South," the birthplace of Catholicism in the Philippines, the site of Ferdinand Magellan's landing, and—ultimately—his death at the hands of warrior chief Lapu Lapu.
Pastor Trifon Brady had another description. He called it a hard place, especially for someone like Will Graham.
"This is one of the hard places in the Philippines in terms of evangelism," he said. "They're religious in a sense that they're trying to follow religion, but they don't have a relationship with Christ.
"When we talk about Mindanao, which is in the southern part of the country, they've experienced revival. There was a time when Lausanne, they experienced revival. We are still waiting for this place to be really open."
Into that spiritual climate, and on the heels of a two-day evangelistic outreach in neighboring Tacloban, evangelist Will Graham arrived for the Cebu Celebration of Life, March 27-29.
The Celebration featured a special event for children on Saturday morning, along with three nightly programs comprised of music, dramas, greetings—including one from Cebu Mayor Mike Rama, whom Will visited earlier in the week—and evangelistic sermons.
