    When I was a little girl in the 60’s, I watched Dr. Graham. The first time my mother told me to sit down and listen to you, I knew that it was important. I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was 18 years old and sang in the choir at one of your Crusades in Orlando in the 80’s. I thank God for you, Dr. Graham, and your family. To God be the glory in your lives!!! I will continue to pray for you and your ministry.

    I recall praying for the last Crusade in NYC. I had the opportunity to attend it (I was living in Philadelphia at the time). I was so amazed at the answered prayers. It was August and the temperature was mild and breezy. The entire time was orderly. I was so thrilled to see Rev. Graham live!

  3. Mrs. James P Coleman says:

    Dear Mr. Graham, we love you and all your beautiful family. We just watched The Crown and thought you were portrayed so beautifully as you counseled the Queen. The script referred to you as a lanky, southern boy! They forgot to say handsome! I still weep every time I hear your altar call singing. Merry Christmas and happy birthday year!

  4. JIMMY ONG says:

    I was very encouraged by Mr. Billy’s video and his amazing work that touches millions and millions lives. I was touched by his life and how our Lord has preserved him. Praise our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen!

  7. GlendaGreen says:

    As I read Billy’s book, World Aflame, years ago in my 30s, I felt God’s presence in a very real way. Later, Billy came to Anaheim, California with a Crusade in Angel Stadium. I worked with a local church doing preparation prayer groups under the guidance of Armin Gesswein, who was with the BGEA. My friend and I sang in the choir at the Crusade, and I left my seat to go to the field and gave my life to Christ. I grew up knowing “about” Jesus, but Mr. Graham’s influence on my life helped build the foundation of my faith. I later experienced my own Pentecost. Now in my 80s, I continue to be active in my church in the area of healing prayer and sharing with younger folks how to follow Jesus in practical ways. Thanks, Billy! Bless your 100th year!

  8. Lori Pillette says:

    In Portland, Oregon, around the 1970s, my father was also in the choir. I always watched him on television. I loved the ending with people going forward to receive Christ and the song, “Just As I Am.”

  9. Carol A Herr says:

    My grandmother was a Godly woman and she lived a simple life. She grew up in Iredell County, North Carolina, and remained there until her death at 87-years-old in 1977. I always remember she would faithfully watch Billy Graham on television when he had his Crusades. She would encourage us to watch with her if we happened to be there. She never missed a beat when he was on television. I believe because of her actions she instilled her values. May Mr. Graham be blessed through this next year of his life. God bless you. We love you.
