Billy Graham Crusades have been held in 85 countries on six continents. Mr. Graham's largest Crusade in the world was in Seoul, South Korea, with an estimated 1.1 million people in attendance on June 3, 1973.
Billy and Ruth Graham are welcomed into South Korea. Over the course of the five-day Crusade, an estimated 3.2 million people heard the Gospel.
The Grahams spent time with the children of South Korea. Since then, a children's choir from South Korea, has regularly visited the Billy Graham Library.
Billy Graham and his interpreter, Billy Kim, preach the Word of God to the masses.
"The real story of the Crusades is not in the great choirs, the thousands in attendance, nor the hundreds of inquirers who are counseled. The real story is in the changes that have taken place in the hearts and lives of people." —Billy Graham

    Glory to God for his wonderful ministries through all of the world. Especially in Korea. He came to Korea several times, even during the Korean War. He will meet his lovely wife Ruth and others in glory.
