Rev. Billy Graham, who passed away on February 21, 2018, had a close relationship with South Korea. In 1973, over one million people gathered in Seoul for "Billy Graham's Evangelistic Event in Korea."
In particular, Graham had a meeting with Rev. Junghyun Oh, the senior pastor of Sarang Church, at the Billy Graham Library located in North Carolina, and they discussed the Korean reunification issue.
At the meeting, Graham said "I hope to see the Korean reunification for the rest of my life. The reunification comes from God. Pray to God. The reunification will be surely actualized if your prayer is suitable for God's will."
"I acknowledge that the power of Korean churches dispatching missionaries to countries around the globe. I am also encouraged by the devotion and amazing ministries of Korean churches."
"God works now as well. Rely on Him. Pray to God more earnestly. Following the guidance of the Holy Spirit is the best way." he added.
