Billy Graham, born Nov. 7, 1918, was an American evangelist and an ordained Southern Baptist minister who became well known internationally after 1949. He served as a spiritual adviser to American presidents and provided spiritual counsel for every president from Harry Truman to Barack Obama.
Billy Graham passed away Feb. 21, 2018.
My mother attended the very first Billy Graham crusade in Los Angeles, in 1948. She took the streetcar into downtown Los Angeles to attend. One of the nights she attended, Stuart Hamblen, an American entertainer, gave his life to Christ and like so many others, was changed forever.
