The great Rev. Billy Graham

Tonight, Rev. Graham is in New York, surrounded by 100,000+ people. You can read about his work on his website, which is full of incredible information BGEA: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association

The Rev. will preach, support, pray and encourage these people -- just like he has done for years. This man has a precious gift. He knows how to use it. He soars over barriers. He reaches people that would otherwise turn away.

It was reported last week that Rev Graham will most likely not see another crusade after this one. He is 83 years old and his health is failing. His faithful son, Franklin is picking up where his dad leaves off. Praises.

When asked about his health and future, the Rev. said, "I am ready to see my Maker. I have nothing to fear. What a joyous day it will be."
What an awesome attitude. He is filled with grace, understanding and love. I am sure the Lord will meet him with, "Hello my good and faithful son."
We should all hope to hear those words one day.

Over the years, the Rev has asked for hundreds, if not thousands of altar calls. Think of the people he won for Christ! Think of the bells that ring almost constantly when he speaks.
What a party!

I know the good Rev. Graham will never read this humble online journal...but if he could, I would thank him for his work. He has touched my heart, soul and mind. God Bless you Rev. Graham!

“Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them. And this is how we know that he lives in us: We know it by the Spirit he gave us.” —1 John 3:24

Peace and joy to all.
