On September 22, Mr. Campbell visited the Billy Graham Library. While he was at the Library, this 88-year-old from Quitman, Georgia, prayed to receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
This is not unusual at the Library. Every day, guests come from all over the world to hear about the life of Billy Graham, and for some, that is the extent of it. But for many others, something else happens. They are changed. Changed by what they learn about God, changed by the Gospel message, changed by the story of what God did in one man’s life. In fact, since the Library opened, more than 4,000 people have prayed to receive the gift of salvation and more than 14,000 have recommitted their life.
Billy Graham once said about his Crusades, “People do not come to hear what I have to say – they want to know what God has to say.” We love the fact that people come from far and wide to hear about Billy Graham and while there are here, God speaks to them. God is still using this farm boy from Charlotte, North Carolina, to inspire a new or renewed faith in the same God that saved him nearly 80 years ago.
That’s just one of the reasons for this blog. Called “Letters from the Library,” it will be a place where we can share some of the stories of the lives that are changed. We’ll also keep you updated with what is going on at the Library and share some interesting facts about Billy and Ruth Graham. We want to connect with you, hear from you, and inspire you. Changing lives, one guest – and one blog post – at a time.
