I received this email from a friend who is VP of the Billy Graham association. If you’ve been influenced by Dr. Graham’s ministry through the years, you might enjoy the opportunity to thank him as he celebrates his 90th birthday.
I’ve had the joy of being connected with Dr. Graham through my work with the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization. I was with him in his library one day and he told me he’s never finished a book all the way through . . . that made me feel lots less guity about all the books I’ve read for the main ideas, but never finished.
How we praise God for the ministry of Belhaven College and His guiding through your leadership. Thank you also for your support of Mr. Graham through the years. As you may know, Mr. Graham turns 90 on November 7th. What a milestone for him! Franklin Graham has asked us to connect with the leaders that we know and encourage them to invite their friends and constituents to send a birthday greeting or personal message about how God may have used his father to influence their life and work for Christ.
We have set up a special website, billygraham90.com, where anyone can submit a birthday message or personal story for Mr. Graham. We are looking for testimonies from around the world to share with him to encourage him in his later years. Hopefully, we will see several of these read to him over the rest of his life.
We do want to make a presentation to Mr. Graham. Thank you for sharing this with your team and constituents. If you have time to let me know what you have done, I would very much appreciate that as well.
Yours in Christ,
VP, Crusade Ministries
Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
