    I was one of the first to go forward in that crowd.
    I didnt walk I ran from up in the stands, I couldnt wait to get to the front!
    Is there any way that I could get a copy of the crusade footage if there is any ???
    There has been quite a stoy tom my life since then.

    I was 11 years old. (Saturday 20th of May,1979).
    I was invited onto that very platform by Billy Graham and led to the Lord, along with the faithful thousands on that great day.
    He told the man who was about to pray for me at the front of the stage, “To suffer the little Children to come unto me”
    and was led up the stairs you can see, left of the stage.

    I remember it, like it was yesterday, standing in front of him, every time he spoke over the microphone I could hear the delay of his voice echoing over the massive speakers it was an amazing experience.
    Could you supply more pictures, I too would love a copy of the crusade footage.
    Kind regards
    James

    I was an interpreter for Indonesian, at the Crusade. My boyfriend (now husband), Roy Scarcella, was an interpreter for Italian. It was the most amazing event. I still cannot believe I had the great honour to be part of it.

    I watched on TV and wanted to be there. I came to Christ in April 1981 I Dandenong Melbourne because I could not let go of the desire I had to go forward and give my life to God, even through I wasn’t there.

    I gave my heart to the Lord at that crusade too. I always remember the feeling of knowing that I had to step out. Looking at this picture I’m so thankful for my parents who encouraged me to go with them to this life changing event. Forever thankful!!!
