 Billy Graham plans NYC Crusade


MONTREAT, N.C., June 8 - After more than five decades spent preaching to 210 million people in 185 lands, the Rev. Billy Graham is marooned in his log house on a mountaintop ridge.

The evangelist shuffles with a walker down a small ramp into his living room. He has prostate cancer, hydrocephalus and the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, and last year broke a hip and his pelvis. He says he leaves the mountain only three or four times a year, and cannot even remember his last time down.

"When you get to be 86 years of age as I am, all of the world is passing you by," he said, sitting on his front porch for a rare interview.

Nevertheless, Mr. Graham is now preparing to venture down the mountain to travel to New York City for another evangelistic crusade - a three-day outdoor revival meeting beginning June 24 in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens.

 Re: Billy Graham plans NYC Crusade

I've heard a rumor that this may be his last crusade. Lets keep Mr. Graham and this outreach in our prayers, Oh Lord, let revival fires burn throughout New York and across the nation and world, for your name's sake!

In Christ,
