''The flight from Ghana to Lagos, Nigeria, in the middle of the night was one of the most harrowing I’ve ever taken. The Ghana Airlines DC-3, an old Dakota plane, had previously been owned by several other airlines, their names still visible under successive coats of paints.

An English Lord in Bermuda shorts was sitting beside me on the plane; I tried to witness to him, but he was not interested in the slightest.

In mid-flight the pilot, who was European, came back to talk to the non-Africans on the plane. While he was chatting, the air-craft entered a violent thunderstorm. As he returned to the cockpit, the lightening flashed razor-bright. The plane shook, rattled, and rolled; in fact, it did everything but turn over. I didn’t think the wings could possibly remain attached to the fuselage.

"My father said to me, come on son," continued Trump. "Let's go see Billy Graham at Yankee stadium, and it was something very special."

"In those moments when we felt weak in spirit, when our country was on its knees, he reminded us, he convinced us, that is exactly when we find our grace and strength," said Ryan.

 "I think this speaks a lot, for this long line, and the people that are traveling a long ways to Charlotte and to here just to walk by to pay respects to this man who changed the world. He literally changed the world," declared Dawn Stewart, who attended many of Rev .Graham's crusades."He never wanted attention for himself, always pointing people to the Lord, just a pattern of integrity, and goodness to follow after, especially if you wanted to go into the ministry, just a great man," Vickers told CBN News.
