Greensboro Church Began As A Result Of Billy Graham Crusade In 1951

United Kingdom singer Sir Cliff Richard, who announced he had become Christian at a Billy Graham event in London in 1966, said the world had lost someone special. It was brutal. It was blunt. "When we all started singing, I can remember thinking, 'this must be what Heaven's Choir sounds like.' It was wonderful".

Billy and Ruth Graham visited the devastated Guatemalan village of San Martín-Jilotepeque after a 1973 quake killed 21 percent of the population and destroyed 98 percent of homes there.

Graham is survived by his sons, the Rev. William Franklin III and the Rev. Nelson Graham, known as Ned; three daughters, Virginia Tchividjian, Anne Graham Lotz and Ruth Graham McIntyre; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

MONTREAT, N.C. (BP) - The late beloved evangelist Billy Graham, who ministered to both the disenfranchised and the most powerful, will lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda in a pinewood coffin fashioned by prisoners' hands.

Billy Graham was a renowned evangelist who had conducted crusades across the globe, preaching the Gospel. "I doubt that many presidents ever wanted to be around him because they thought it would help them politically", Clinton said. It was just the two of us that night, but I believe it was there, that the spark to preach was lit. "I just think that in nearly every way, the things that he did as a Christian were admirable, and the kinds of actions that I have sought to emulate". "Then we would come home and talk about life", Bush said in a statement. I feel like I have nothing to give these people. I remember listening to the messages and singing along with the soloists and the choir, all by television.

Words will never fully express our deep love and appreciation for the work Graham did, nor the thousands who came to know Christ because of the work he did on behalf of God. I was saddened to learn of his death.

"When they're going on and on about Vice President Mike Pence being insane because he talks to God and hears God, well, I say, 'Well, Martin Luther King said he heard God, '" said King. The world misses you. My church choir director got me into the tenor section for most of the services. Certainly, I was on my way to Heaven.

"The ecumenical movement has broadened my viewpoint and I recognize now that God has his people in all churches", he said in the early 1950s. Civil rights figure Rosa Parks was the last person to receive the honour following her death in 2005. I can show you the place where it happened.

And let me set those newpeople straight. The Billy Graham Evangelical Organization, which at various times maintained headquarters in nine countries, was followed by Grason Co., which published and distributed books and pamphlets. Graham's feet, the more I've realized this man has an intimate relationship with the Lord. He accepted Jesus as his Savior, made Jesus his Lord and for a lifetime, Rev. "Well done, good and faithful servant!" He has been reunited with his wife and other family members and he has seen Jesus face to face. And if he could, Rev.

Explaining his personal experience, he said that it was his first real encounter with God from that day onwards he knew that God is real. Jesus died for you.

In celebration of Billy Graham's life, "The Billy Graham Tribute Channel" began airing February 21.

Did you hear that rumor about Bill Graham and the woman he stepped out with? You can start with numbers, of course.
