Billy Graham died this morning (Feb. 21) at age 99 (1918 - 2018.) Now he’s with his beloved Jesus.

I first met him in Red Wing, Minnesota when I was 13 years old. Donna Rosen’s family took me to his evangelical service at the Methodist Church. Rev. Shieds was the pastor. He had baptised me at the Methodist Church in Lake City, Minnesota.

Billy was dressed in clothes that looked like he got them off of the free table at the Salvation Army. He touched my heart for Jesus and I accepted Jesus that night on my knees by Billy Graham. It was a thrill to me all over.

Thank you Billy Graham for giving me a life in Jesus. I’m now 87 years old and I still love Jesus.
