(NEW) Triad Connection: Jonathan Lotz recalls Billy Graham, the grandfather
Billy Graham may have been ‘larger than life’ for many, but for Jonathan Lotz, he was “granddaddy.” Lotz – the son of Graham’s daughter Anne Graham Lotz – grew up spending time with the Billy and Ruth (his grandparents) over holidays and summers. Jonathan also worked with the ministry helping to organizing crusades for the better part of a decade (from 1994 to 2002).
“He (Billy Graham) was the same man in public as he was in private…
always warm, gracious and full of humility.”
Lotz, an ordained minister, lives in Mocksville and also works at the Chick-fil-A in Clemmons. https://goo.gl/HsGA9L

Graham’s ministry reached millions of lives around the world.
He shared the gospel of Jesus Christ to nearly 215 million people in live audiences in more than 185 countries.

Don’t you believe a word of it.

I will just have changed my address.
I will have gone into the presence of God…”
-Quote from Rev Billy Graham, going ‘home’ at the age of 99

because we know this is not the end…” Rev Billy Graham, spoken at Ruth’s funeral service

we are channels made for sharing. -Billy Graham

Only God who made us can touch us
and change us and save us from ourselves. -Billy Graham

Only the supernatural love of God through changed lives
can solve the problems that we face in our world. -Billy Graham
