My father turned 99 on 7 November. He’s doing reasonably well, though he lives with many of the limitations anyone that age might expect. Back before his 95th birthday, while working on a sermon based on Galatians 6:14, he posted the verse all over the house so he could saturate his mind with it. To this day the words are still up in very large letters on his bedroom wall: “God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (NKJV). I know he appreciates your prayers.
In November, I led an evangelistic Outreach in Oslo, the capital and largest city of Norway. The nation has a rich heritage of Christianity, and an overwhelming majority of Norwegians have a church affiliation, but in recent years only 4 per cent attend church on any given Sunday. Opposition to evangelism is on the rise, especially in and around Oslo. Even so, evangelical churches are active in sharing the Gospel, and a number of those churches have invited me. I ask for your prayers.
We thank the Lord that He continually opens doors for “preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things which concern the Jesus Christ” (Acts 28:31), and we are grateful to friends like you who actively partner in this work by your prayers and gifts. Thank you for all you do for His kingdom.
May God richly bless you,
President Billy Graham Evangelistic Association
