Today Billy Graham turned 90 years.. I want to join millions of people from all the world to greet him on this day.
When I was 12 years old his associate evangelist Dr Akbar Haqq held tent meetings in my town.My family attended each night.
Although we were conservative, traditional Christians and church goers we did not understand the significance of making a personal decision for Christ.
On that last Sunday afternoon, when the preacher talked about the death of Christ on the cross I was deeply convicted. I understood why I must make a personal commitment to Christ and declare it publicly.I was a very shy and scared 12 year old but when the call came I walked forward for prayer.
A missionary lady counselled me and I still have some booklets she gave me that day.Later on my whole family was born again.
I listened to the Hour of Decision Broadcasts faithfully and wrote to them each month.I also got books which Cliff Barrows announced and their magazine too.
Mr Graham you have influenced my life immensely and I want to say God bless you.
