Feb. 21, 2018

APOPKA, Fla. — Pastor Paula White releases the following statement in commemoration and gratitude for the life of Billy Graham: 

“Billy Graham is now at home in heaven and reunited with his beloved Ruth. Like every other Christian leader in the world, there aren’t words enough to express my admiration and gratitude for the life and legacy of Rev. Billy Graham. It’s not only the power of his preaching, the humility of his character, or the innovation of his approach, it’s that no one has touched more lives and changed the world more profoundly in the last century than he. Billy Graham leaves us all with an enormous mantle to assume, to be peacemakers, bridge builders and unifiers in our world, through the power of Jesus Christ.”
