Yesterday, Billy Graham, who went to be with the Lord last week, laid in honor in the Capitol Rotunda. Billy Graham’s casket was the first civilian since Rosa Parks to lie in repose in the Capitol Rotunda. Hundreds, if not thousands, file past his casket to pay their last respects. Though a somber day, we rejoiced in the fact that this beloved servant of God finished his race well and is now with His Lord and the many, many people he preached the Gospel too over his long ministry career.
Rev. Schenck and I were honored to be a part of this tribute and to have the opportunity to pay our last respects to a man who faithfully preached the Gospel and didn’t let anything deter him from his mission.
Faith & Action seeks to fulfill our mission of spreading the Gospel as well. Our arena is Capitol Hill where we bring the Good News to our national leaders through public events, prayer, and private ministry.
February was a busy month for our Faith & Action ministry team – we were actively involved in the National Prayer Breakfast and the Swearing-in Ceremony of Governor Sam Brownback as the newly appointed U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.
You are a vital part of our ministry team here in Washington, D.C. Your prayers, your interest, and your generous support forms the backbone of this Gospel outpost in the nation’s capital. The Gospel is needed in Washington and your generous gift—along with your prayers and your presence—make this ministry possible!
Thank you for all you do to ensure that the Gospel is shared in Washington, D.C.
Mrs. Peggy Nienaber
Vice President of Operations
Faith & Action in the Nation’s Capital
