On Wednesday, February 21, world-famous evangelist Billy Graham passed away. "America's Pastor" was 99 years old at the time of his death.
Throughout his life, Graham ministered to millions of people. He spent much of his life traveling and sharing the gospel and served as a spiritual adviser to many past U.S. presidents.
According to the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, he spent his life reaching almost 215 million people, covering over 185 countries and territories. Fox News noted that “hundreds of millions more” were impacted by Graham through television, video, and webcasts.
