Meet Edward Graham. The grandson of the late evangelist Billy Graham, Edward is the Assistant to the Vice President of Programs & Government Relations at Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world since 1970. Samaritan’s Purse has been particularly active in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, erecting emergency field hospitals all over the world to relieve overburdened medical centers. Their presence paid immediate dividends.
“When we showed up, we got to be a part of a miracle, and people started living,” Graham says.
Samaritan’s Purse also runs Operation Christmas Child, an outreach that provides God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Together, with local churches worldwide, it shares the Good News of Jesus Christ and has reached more than 178 million children in more than 150 countries over since 1993.
“It gives me kind of goosebumps because I’ve seen those children’s faces,” Graham said. “I’m all about the long term and that’s the Gospel. It’s about never passing up a ministry opportunity. You can do it right there in your own community.”
