Franklin Graham spoke with a Charlotte station WSOC-TV at a Christmas charity event, “My father’s health has declined quite a bit in the last few days.  I’m not even sure he knows Nelson Mandela has passed away.  He hasn’t been able to get his strength back.  Vitals are good.  He’s just weak and at home.”

At an event held at the Billy Graham Library Franklin issued a statement after his father’s last hospital stay.

“My father is encouraged and he’s surrounded by people who care for him and love him so he’s in good hands.  At 95, people praying for my father’s health is always appreciated.”

Billy Graham marked his latest birthday on November 7th with a gathering of 800 people in Asheville, North Carolina, as well as a powerful nationwide evangelistic broadcast called “The Cross,” in which he gave another invitation to accept the Gospel.
