BILLY GRAHAM'S BODY BEGINS JOURNEY HOME !!

A hearse bearing the body of Evangelist Billy Graham has begun its journey from the North Carolina mountains to his home town of Charlotte.

The procession began with a ceremonial departure from a mountain chapel at the training centre operated by his evangelistic association in Asheville.

Crowds lined the streets as the procession passed through the town of Black Mountain on its 130 mile journey.

The Billy Graham Evangelical Association announced Graham’s funeral service will take place at noon on March 2 ,2018 !

Graham, known to many as America’s pastor, died aged 99 on Wednesday from natural causes at his family home in Montreat just outside Asheville.

Mark Demoss, a spokesman for the organisation, said the funeral will be held in a large tent as a tribute to Graham’s first Crusade in Los Angeles in 1949.

And, like his wife Ruth, who died in 2007, Graham will be buried in a simple pine casket made by inmates at the correctional facility in Angola, Lousiana.

Approximately 2,300 invitations were issued for the private funeral, including to President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and former presidents, George H W Bush, George W Bush, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, Mr DeMoss said.

"Many invest wisely in business matters, but fail to invest time and interest in their most valued possessions: their spouses and children"- Billy Graham

Hope our Nigerian pastors have seen what it is to be a TRUE MAN OF GOD? Died at a very ripe age, fulfilled his ministry with peace in his mind. Nothing controversial about him. Getting a befitting state like burial.
May his soul Rest In P.
