A Word on Billy Graham Going Home

As was reported yesterday--Evangelist Billy Graham died yesterday at 7:46 a.m. at his home in Montreat, NC. He was 99.  Throughout his life, Billy Graham preached the gospel of Jesus Christ to some 215 million people who attended one of his more than 400 Crusades, simulcasts and evangelistic rallies in more than 185 countries and territories. He reached millions more through TV, video, film, the internet and 34 books.  Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) offered the following statement in regard to the death of Reverend Billy Graham:  “Mark 16:15 of the Good Book instructs us to, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all the world.’ This is a charge that Reverend Graham took seriously and a charge which he spent a lifetime endeavoring to obey. Reverend Graham will be remembered as a talented, inspiring and dedicated North Carolinian. Foxx ended by saying:  "While I was saddened to learn of Reverend Graham’s passing, I rejoice that he has gone to join the Lord whom he loved so dearly.”
