This week, Billy Graham celebrated his 94th birthday! Many visitors stopped by the Library to sign a special birthday banner. Those well-wishes will be shared with Mr. Graham at his home in Montreat, NC.
“I never expected I would live this long, outliving my beloved wife Ruth as well as many friends and loved ones,” Mr. Graham said in a press release this week. “I believe God must still have a purpose for keeping me here, and I look forward to seeing what that might be.”
Currently, Mr. Graham is working diligently to finalize the manuscript for his 31st book summarizing the Gospel message of God’s love and forgiveness that he has faithfully preached for more than 60 years. Mr. Graham is excited about the book’s release sometime next year and is considering additional writing projects as there is still much on his mind that he would like to share.
As in years past, Mr. Graham had a quiet birthday celebration at home with his family, spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
