    Very happy birthday to my hero since 1956 when you came to Kottayam, Kerala in India. That February Friday you preached from John 3:16. For the history of the Christendom of Kerala, your visit was an historical event. The 11 year old boy’s trip to Kottayam from our village in a sardine packed Studybaker bus is still intact in the memory.

    My children will buy any book they could find with your name for me. Dr. Billy Graham, as a crusader of world-wide evangelism breaking its history, bridge builder of denominations- wall breaker of white and black race- friend of world leaders-national Pastor of the U.S.; it is quite hard for me to put you in any golden chair; you are indeed unique and specially chosen by God.

    Thank God for Billy Graham. God loves Billy for his passionate heart. Shout out to man Lecrae who was there. God loves all and a man like Billy Graham is just awesome. He and my boy Crae are like that. They both got some great hearts for God. Happy birthday Billy my man. I’m glad there are some good men in this world filled with porn, prostitutes, drugs, and strippers. Keep on preachin. And for my homey lecrae, keep on rappin for God my man.

    I thank God for giving us such a GREAT and WONDERFUL PERSON like Billy Graham who inspires and transforms the life of people all over the world through his life and by spreading the message of LOVE, GRACE, HOPE through his ministry. You are and will always be ‘the LIGHT OF CHRIST’ to the past, present and future generation. Your works and contributions will always be remembered and cherished. Thankyou and may God be with you always.

      I love that Airida. I just wish all men could hear those words. “Men” like lil Wayne need words like that. God is so great and all powerful. Shout out to all Christ lovers.

  5. Genevieve says:

    I love you and I know that God love’s you too! Just continue and don’t let anyone bring you down to nothingness you have done a lot I think you just won your “crown of life”.

  6. Genevieve says:

    Truth is through…..don’t forget to continue breathing in and out so you would be good looking.

  7. Robin Kerr says:

    What a challenge to us 75 year olds, Billy Graham is still preaching the gospel at 95 years old. We still
    have 20 years of ministry left in us to reach a lost world for Jesus Christ. What about you younger guys as well, committing the rest of your days to preaching “Jesus Christ and Him having been crucified” to a lost and dying world without God and without Hope.

  8. Jean M Coleman says:

    Happy and Blessed Birthday Dr Billy. I was with you in 1962 in São Paulo Brazil, but I first heard you preach in Atlanta in the old baseball stadium near the old Sears Building…the old neighborhood now gone, but the Gospel still being preached! Hallelujah! I am 81 now and living though cancer until I live with Jesus in Heaven. See you there, dear Godly servant. God bless you as always.

  9. Nane Juergensen says:

    Happy Birthday, Billy Graham! What a gigantic influence you had and still have on mankind. Thank God.
