“Over the years I had the greatest respect for Mr. Graham. He was always a person of the greatest integrity and I saw the Holy Spirit working in him. He was always kind to me, concerned about my family, and appreciative of what I was contributing to the Crusade meetings (a very small part), ” John Innes ’63.
