One of the greatest evangelical leaders of our time, Billy Graham has passed away at the age of 99 at his home in Montreat, N.C.
From Fox News:
"My one purpose in life," he (Graham) said, "is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which, I believe, comes through knowing Christ."
Graham was last hospitalized November 30 (2011) at Mission Hospital in Asheville, N.C. for what was described as "evaluation and treatment of his lungs." He previously was hospitalized in May 2011 with pneumonia.
William Franklin Graham Jr. was born November 7, 1918 and raised on a dairy farm in Charlotte, N.C.
