Franklin Graham preachingThe son of the world's most famous evangelist is traveling in his footsteps in the land Down Under.

Sixty years after his father launched a historical evangelistic tour throughout Australia, Franklin Graham is set to share the Good News with a crusade of his own.

The first crusade is February 9 in Perth, the capital of Western Australia. 

It was 1959 when Billy Graham's travels there had a significant spiritual impact as he spoke to about 30 percent of the nation's population. 

Now, six decades later, Franklin Graham, 66, will spend the month touring Australia with one simple goal: to preach the gospel to the unsaved and unreached.

The six-city tour includes Melbourne and Sydney, where it concludes February 24.

"We're not asking for money. We're not selling anything," he tells OneNewsNow. "We're there to preach the gospel and it's free -- every seat is free. We ask people to come. Bring their friends, family. We want the unsaved to come."

Graham says there is excitement about the evangelistic tour because there is still a hunger for the truth of simple, non-hyped preaching.

"Not to hype anything but just preach the gospel," he says. "Give an invitation."

According to the evangelist, almost 10,000 Australians have gone through the ministry's "Christian Life and Witness" courses in preparation for the tour.
