Evangelist and head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Franklin Graham, has ordered the deployment of crisis-trained chaplains to Las Vegas in order to bring comfort to those still reeling from the effects of the savage mass shooting. “My heart is heavy for the 59 grieving families whose loved ones were killed at the brutal massacre in Las Vegas Sunday night,” Graham wrote on Facebook.
“May God comfort them and heal their hearts as only He can. And there are 527 wounded who need our prayers, along with their families, as they deal with their injuries and trauma in the aftermath of this evil. Many are hospitalized and suffering, many had surgeries, we can only imagine what they are going through tonight.”
“I have deployed crisis-trained chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to be in Las Vegas to pray with, comfort, and minister to the hurting and traumatized. As people are searching for answers, they need to know that the “Father of mercies and God of all comfort” loves and cares for them.”
