“The passing of Evangelist Billy Graham has touched our hearts deeply. We, from Christ for all Nations, honor him for his long evangelistic ministry with its glorious results. He has run the race and kept the faith from beginning till end. Billy Graham has inspired me personally when he preached in a tent in Hamburg, Germany. I always felt connected to him. May the God, who is the God of all comfort, comfort the bereaved family”. Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke wrote on Facebook.
“The debt owed by the global church to him is immeasurable and inexpressible. Personally I am profoundly grateful to God for the life and ministry of this good and faithful servant of the gospel; by his example he challenged all Christians to imitate how he lived and what he did. He was one who met presidents and preachers, monarchs and musicians, the poor and the rich, the young and the old, face to face. Yet now he is face to face with Jesus Christ, his savior and ours. It is the meeting he has been looking forward to for the whole of his life.” — Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby

Yes, Rev. Billy Graham is home and what a home going. He is rejoicing in Heaven with Jesus, all the saints and his sweet wife Ruth. While on earth he was God’s humble servant proclaiming the message of Gods love to all mankind far and wide. We will miss you Mr. Graham. One day we each will join you in that glorious home. God bless you his family with peace and comfort in your sadness and THANK YOU all for sharing him with us all. We will all say goodnight down here but good morning up there where Christ is the light.

Above all these flowery eulogies, and millions others impossible to read or mention, Billy Graham laboured for only one thing, in one word – Decision.

He pour in all his life to see that people understood the full extend of the love of God and the need to DECIDE  for Jesus

Have you decided for Jesus?
