The Cove, Billy Graham, and the last days

Here’s a photo I took of Stella in North Carolina.

On Tuesday, my wife Cathe and I had the privilege of sharing lunch with Billy Graham. What a wonderful time that was, and I will blog about that on Friday.

We were in Asheville, North Carolina, speaking at the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove on the theme of the Lord’s return. It was a thrill to meet so many people who follow our ministry, and I even met a couple of my Facebook friends in person. BTW, if you want to check out my Facebook page, click here.

I was joined by my friends Don McClure, Levi Lusko, Pedro Garcia, Dennis Agajanian, and Marty Goetz. Plus, our whole family made the trip–Cathe, Jonathan, Brittany, Stella, and Lucy–and we took some photos for our Christmas card as well.

While in North Carolina, I also shot a series of eight videos for the holidays (one for each week), focusing on the real message of Thanksgiving and Christmas. We will post the first one in the first week of November.

A good time was had by all!

Thursday in Orange County

Tonight, I will continue my last days series in Orange County with a message titled, “Israel, Magog, and the Rapture.”

We all have questions about these last days events, and I will address them Thursday night.

Looking ahead, I am working on a message for this weekend at Harvest on the Antichrist, America, and Armageddon.

Well, that’s all for now. On Friday, I’ll tell you about my lunch with the greatest evangelist who has ever lived, Billy Graham.

    Hi Princess Stella! Did you have fun running through all the leaves out there in woods? Tell grandpa to help you get your ear unstuck from your shoulder-okay? He can do it, I just know he can. Stella, you’re such a cutie. GIANT HUGS sweetie. Can’t wait to see all the video and read all your trip.

    PG!
    Thanks for an AWESOME experience at the Cove. I hope you didn’t think I was over the top when I stood up with my testimony and that I felt you “put your money where your mouth was” after Tophers death and place with the Lord. Right after that, a lady came up to me and she was in tears and said she wasn’t even going to come to the seminar, she did not know you or what happened with your son. She lost her 18 year son in a car accident almost two months to the day. SHE WAS HURTING so bad. I prayed with her, I told her a bit about you and what you have gone through. Her name is Karen Colyer and she felt the presence of the Lord right there!
    Thanks again, yes it has been 19 years since the Monday night bible studies you held at CCCM abd the hair and mustache are gone….well most of the hair, but the fire is still burning brightly! I go to CCCary with Rodney Fitch, he says hello as well. Again, thanks Greg, glad Wednesday was a GREAT day to be in the mountains of North Carolina.
    Sincerely,
    Keith Sarich
