BELLFLOWER, CA (ANS) -- Evangelist Will Graham, the grandson of Billy Graham, has
Billy, Franklin & Will Graham
said that at the age of 95, Mr. Graham is close to going home to be with the Lord.

In an exclusive interview at Hosanna Christian Fellowship, Bellflower, California, before he was to preach tonight (Wednesday, December 11, 2013) at a special Christian event, he spoke movingly about Billy Graham’s frail condition. “I saw my grandfather last week and he is not doing well,” said Will, the son of Franklin Graham. “He’s not suffering or anything. It’s just that old age has caught up to him and is sucking the life out of him.
“On November 7 [with his My Hope America with Billy Graham* outreach], he finished his race and up until that time, God had protected his health and gave him supernatural strength and now, the only thing left is for him to come home. God has removed his hand of protection and old age has set in. [MORE . . . ]

All I can say, is, a life's race well-run. God grant him grace to the finish-line. END
