The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement on the passing of Reverend Billy Graham.

Graham died Wednesday at the age of 99. Heralded as being “America’s Pastor,” Graham was a spiritual advisor and preacher to a dozen U.S. presidents.  His worldwide appeal made him one of the most well-known evangelical Christians in the world. 

The statement from the LDS First Presidency reads: “We express our deepest condolences at the passing of Reverend Billy Graham. His decades of ministry stand as a legacy of his love for the Redeemer of all mankind, and we admire his courageous voice of moral witness to the world. We pray God’s blessings will be upon his family and all who knew and loved him.”
