“It is our joy to share the love of Jesus Christ with these people that are really in pain,” he said. 

For the last week he and some volunteers have set up in Parkland to help after 17 people were killed by a teenager with an AR-15. 

“His legacy is Jesus Christ and him crucified and the only hope we have, and it is that source of comfort,” said Milligan. 

Milligan and his team are in Parkland to listen, to pray, and to help mourn the lives lost.  

“We hope now that many of the seeds that he has planted that haven’t sprouted yet will start to grow and the gospel of Jesus Christ will be redivided in this world,” Milligan said there is hope that Graham’s legacy can help.  

“We need to change the hearts of these kids so they don’t do things like this.”
