My home is in Heaven. I’m just traveling through this world.

 РBilly Graham

On February 21, 2018, Billy Graham passed away from natural causes in his Montreal, North Carolina home. He was 99 years old.

Thanks to Front Gate Media, I received a complimentary copy of Rev. Graham’s published children’s book, God’s Good News.
