Wednesday, November 7 is a special day for the Graham family. It’s the day that famous evangelist Billy Graham would have celebrated his 100th birthday, and it’s the first time that he is celebrating his birthday in heaven.

The world-famous preacher passed away on February 21, 2018, at the age of 99. Though his time on earth concluded,  the impact that he had been making for the past several decades continued on. Throughout his lifetime, Graham spoke to an audience of over a hundred million people. To this day, his words are helping people to learn about Christ.

Talking about what would’ve been his father’s 100th birthday, Franklin Graham wrote, “We’re really celebrating how God used the life of an ordinary farm boy to reach the world w/ the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Because of the power of the Gospel-  we know that at this moment @BillyGraham is more alive than ever- in Heaven w/ the Savior He loved & served!”

Later, Graham shared how he is honoring his father for the special day. He posted a picture of a beautiful cake that Jack Phillips created.

Franklin Graham wrote, “Today we’re celebrating what would’ve been my father @BillyGraham’s 100th birthday. I appreciate Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado coming to  @TheBGLibrary to bake the birthday cake we’re serving today. I know that it would’ve meant so much to my father.”

Happy birthday, Billy Graham! As Franklin said, he is able to celebrate his birthday in Heaven with his Savior! How has the evangelist impacted your life? Let us know! In other recent news, here's how President Trump felt about the results of the midterm elections.
