Billy Graham to Celebrate 92nd Birthday Sunday

Ad Feedback

Evangelist Billy Graham turns 92 on Sunday. He will celebrate the occasion with close friends and family.

After decades of tireless ministry, the evangelist continues to look for ways he can further serve the Lord in his remaining years.

"I am amazed every time I think of how many years the Lord has given me on this earth," Graham said in a statement. "I am grateful for His blessing on our ministry for more than six decades, but wonder if there is something more He has for me to accomplish."

Graham's grandson Will says the evangelist has trouble seeing and hearing, but still likes to tell jokes and laugh. He also enjoys visiting and praying with his friends.

In addition to working on a book project on the ageing process that he has been writing over the last few years, Graham continues to attend Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Board meetings as he is able. This year marked a milestone anniversary for the organization he founded in Minneapolis 60 years ago.

"The Hour of Decision" with Billy Graham, one of Christian radio's longest running programs, also turned 60 this week and continues to broadcast in five languages in 55 countries on six continents.

"While I don't know what the future holds for me, I still look for ways to serve the Lord," Mr. Graham continued. "Most of all, I look forward to serving Him in Heaven one day alongside my dear wife Ruth, who I miss more every year."
