Seoul, South Korea: A Look Back at Billy Graham’s Largest Ever Crusade
From May 30 to June 3, 1973, an estimated 3.2 million people attended Billy Graham’s largest ever Crusade in Seoul, South Korea, with 1.1 million traveling—mostly by foot—to the final service on the airstrip at Yoi-do Plaza. Some 75,000 people submitted cards showing they made a decision for Christ because of that Crusade.
The historic plaza is less than 100 miles west of the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium, where millions more have gathered for the Winter Games.

State of the Union: Trump extends ‘open hand’ to Dems on immigration, touts tax cuts, warns N. Korea
President Trump appealed for common ground in the immigration debate at his first State of the Union address Tuesday night, while holding firm on his demands for border security and using the grand setting to tout his economic accomplishments and declare a “new American moment.”
At a critical time when the political divide over immigration has held up essential government funding, the president called to put politics aside and “get the job done.”
“Tonight, I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties — Democrats and Republicans — to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion, and creed,” he said.
