Billy at The Y – in New Delhi!

American evangelist Dr. Billy Graham’s convention in New Delhi, India.

I was there at the YMCA in New Delhi on the occasion of the titan preacher’s address to a huge crowd of Indians on Saturday, February the 4th in 1956.

As a longtime Y member, I had a good reserved seat near the speaker’s podium in the vast auditorium set up especially on the YMCA grounds. I was struck by the sincerity and forcefulness of Billy Graham’s sometimes heated delivery headed “God Calls the Church” and still recall the Big Event as if it were just yesterday.

As with many Christians, I mourn Billy Graham’s passing away today at the age of 99.

Pathe News, My Diary

Dear Readers,
You number over 70,000 in just over 2 years ago back in February 2015, when I first began to put “some of my thoughts, written down” and posted them in the blogosphere. Since that time, many of you have urged me to seek support of my site and my writings by way of donations.

 My blog is about my life. It’s about what I’ve learned through the span of my life. It’s about things I love, and things I know and things I have experienced. I am humbled that so many of you want to join with me in my reflections. If you like what you find here, if it inspires or informs or amuses you, then I am content.

It would mean a lot to me, if you would please consider making a donation of US $1.00, $2.00, $5.00, or whatever amount you deem fit to sustain my work.
And thank you for being a regular reader of the Azim Mayadas Blog!
