Forty years ago Bill Brown from the Billy Graham Association approached me about making the movie Joni

Forty years ago Bill Brown from the Billy Graham Association approached me about making the movie Joni. Two years later, the film was released! Earlier this year, I had the chance to see Bill. He’s now 90 years old. He was in the hospital. Diabetes had taken both his legs. So when I entered his room, my expectations were a little low. But with a booming voice he welcomed me saying, “Joni, you have to hear my idea for reaching for Christ people in nursing homes!” I tell you what, energy exuded from this 90-year-old, double amputee in the hospital bed. But less than 24 hours later, Bill experienced what Second Peter describes as his “…grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom.” And it sure must have been grand. For up till the very end, Bill was striving to reach others for Christ. I hope he’s an example to you as he has been to me. No matter how close to the end we are, no matter how old, let’s keep winning people to Jesus.
