About two years ago the Billy Graham Association was asking for email stories of how Billy Graham’s Evangelical Outreach had touched our lives. I sent in the story of my Pop’s conversion. Previously to this request, when our daughter was at Wheaton College in Illinois we were able to visit the Billy Graham Museum on campus. Emotions came to the surface when I saw the photos from the Los Angeles Crusade at the Colliseum in 1963. I knew my dad and I were somewhere in that photo of the stadium filled to overflowing.
I sent in my story hoping that Billy would hear and know that I thanked God for his devotion to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how it impacted my family.
What a thrill to get this book in the mail this past month, skimming through and seeing my story about Pop published.
I can hardly wait to show my Mom and Pop the book…
My parents are soon turning 86 and 85.
