Graham on Twitter, "Today Dr Kim is one of the nation's evangelical church leaders and a very dear friend and he has invited me back to preach on this anniversary historical".

"What a privilege it was. The 10 member choir was amazing and the World Cup Stadium in Seoul was filled with 000 people. We thank God for all those He has saved through the proclamation of the Gospel during my father's crusade, and we thank him that he is still working in hearts today Many have responded to the invitation to repent of their sins and put their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Korea has changed a lot in the past five decades, the world has changed, but the gospel has not changed and the needs of the human heart have not changed. Jesus Christ is still the only answer ."

The site of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association reveals that "more than 6 people have made decisions for Christ".
