from the Billy Graham Library

 

An Eye-Opening Experience

Debbie Hall and her husband are restaurant managers with conflicting schedules. They don’t get much time together but did take a Valentine’s Day trip to the Billy Graham Library.

 

“CHRISTmas hasn’t been lost”

When I heard about volunteering for Christmas at the Library, my top choice was story time. What better way to spend an evening than reading Christmas stories to a wiggly but intrigued bunch of small children? What I didn’t count on was how much I would be inspired by them.

 

Don’t Miss a ‘Tremendous Blessing’

For Rosemary Moore, playing Mary in Christmas at the Library’s live nativity is tradition. As part of the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, she and several co-workers use the volunteer opportunity for team building. It’s also a fun, unique way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Rosemary’s favorite part is seeing children’s faces as they peek over the wood fence to spot baby Jesus or pet the animals.

 

Ministry in Action

Our current exhibit, “The Power of Christ in the Home,” is more than an opportunity to see some rarely seen items. It’s also an opportunity to experience ministry in action.

 

Through the Eyes of a Volunteer

I truly enjoy being a volunteer at the Billy Graham Library. It allows me the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. In one day, I met a Kansas couple on their honeymoon; a woman from Ontario, Canada; a business man from Memphis and Russians visiting the United States. Where else could I have the pleasure of sharing God’s love with so many?
