He was the hope and guidance to America, for generations.
Billy Graham devoted almost his entire life to spreading the Gospel, and since the 1950’s has maintained a consistent presence on TV and Radio.
“My one purpose in life is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which I believe comes from knowing Christ.”
Graham first started to establish a public profile in Los Angeles after holding a two-month ministry inside a giant tent in 1949.
What an amazing legacy to leave behind.
God Bless you brother Billy Graham.
