  1. Carolee Fernandez

    I believe that Reverend Graham was the greatest evangelist that has ever lived. I am sure he brought more people to Jesus than many of the evangelists that are alive today or will ever live. He is greatly missed.

  2. Ralph Ware

    I first heard Billy Graham preach in Tachikowa, Japan about 1955 or 56. Our family was stationed there and he made an appearance in the Air Force Base Chapel. Even though I was just a child, his presence was commanding and the memory of him is as clear to me now as it was, back then.

  3. Deborah Watson

    As a child, I watched TV crusades with my family. I attended a movie in my hometown, went forward and gave my heart to God! Later, I moved to Minneapolis, I volunteered and led many people to Christ at Crusades and television specials! I met Billy and Ruth, prayed, shared at their office!

  4. Ginene Vasey Randall

    I will never forget the time when I was 12 years old and the crusade came to Chicago. As soon as the invitation was given, I ran down the steps and stood right in front of Dr. Graham. That night I rededicated my life to Christ and the lessons by mail helped me to grow in my relationship to Jesus.

  5. Wanda Reiser

    I have always been a Christian. I saw Billy Graham when he was in Denver in 1987. I consider that one of the high points of my life. I went forward and accepted Christ in public. The world is not the same without Billy Graham. Thank God his family members are carrying forward with his work.

  6. Rodney Guarino

    I first heard Billy when I was 8 years old. I will be 75 in 3 days. Billy has had a direct impact on the direction of my life. Because of Billy I have a personal walk with Jesus Christ and am anchored in my faith for eternity. God bless Billy in his new home

  7. Sofija Dragija

    When I was watching Mr. Graham’s ministry it made an impact on my life. It was so real you can feel it in your bones and in your soul. God has used the life and ministry of Billy Graham in a very special way. You were chosen by GOD. You are very blessed and your entire family.

  8. Nora Manwiller

    At 11 years old I went forward at a Billy Graham Crusade along with my sis and grandma. In college, I joined a Bible study group and then really understood the Gospel. But I’m sure that first time at 11 was a powerful first step. Now I have been a pastor’s wife over 30 years and raised 6 boys.

  9. Kathleen Schmidt

    My mother supported Billy Graham back in the 50s and 60s, so whenever he was on television we watched his Crusades. In 1962 at the age of 12 I understood clearly for the first time that I needed a personal relationship with Jesus. I became a child of God that night and will forever be grateful.
