When Dr Billy Graham’s funeral was broadcast around the world in March 2018, it was considered his largest ever crusade. His grandson Roy Graham reflected on the life of his grandfather at the recent National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Anaheim, California. He also shared how his family is continuing Dr. Graham’s legacy with the simple proclamation of the Gospel across the world.
Just over a year since the passing of Dr. Billy Graham, Roy Graham shared about how they are continuing his grandfather’s legacy to share the simple message of preaching the gospel around the world.
Roy reflected on the outpouring of love to his grandfather and his family when the world was mourning the loss of Dr. Graham in February last year:
“It still brings tears to my eyes today, to think of the love and the respect these people have for my grandfather. The only reason why is because of what he went out and shared with them. And he shared about the gospel. He gave a simple gospel message and people responded to it. And these people remembered that.”
