Happy Birthday Billy

In the front of the church there are dozens of shoe boxes wrapped in Christmas paper and empty. The boxes disappear, taken home by the members, to be filled with presents and hygiene products. The boxes will reappear this week and be sent to under privileged children world-wide. The ministry is part of Samaritans Purse and is called operation Christmas Drop. http://www.samaritanspurse.org/index.php/articles/its_shoe_box_time1/ 

Samaritans purse is headed by the eldest son of Billy Graham, Franklin Graham and today is Billys birthday. Happy birthday Billy! Billy Graham is a 94-year-old evangelist who has been evangelizing and spreading the christian faith through compassionate actions and fiery revivals for over fifty years.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Graham

Billy preached with Martin Luther King Jr. and even bailed Dr. King out of jail after some protests. The Billy Graham ministries have reached over 2.2 billion people and even created their own pavilion for the 1964 New York Worlds fair. I found it amazing that his compassionate ministry is carried own by his sons. I also find it odd that on his birthday politicans celebrate victories or learn from defeats and even in the greatest victory no politician will have the positive impact this man has through compassion and charity on the world!

Happy Birthday Billy!
