    FORT WORTH, Texas (BP)--At 83 and battling Parkinson's disease -- and with former President George Bush providing the introduction -- evangelist Billy Graham made a historic return to north Texas to launch his Metroplex Mission Oct. 17-20 at Texas Stadium in Irving.

    The former president received a deafening standing ovation more akin to a Dallas Cowboys victory than the opening night of an evangelistic campaign. Bush spoke for eight minutes about faith and his family's close relationship with the Graham family.

    Bush recalled spending part of the evening in prayer with Graham the night Operation Desert Storm began in 1991. "And that night I can tell you that once again I gained great comfort and peace from Billy Graham and from God above," Bush said.

    Billy Graham has preached the Gospel to more people in live audiences than anyone else in history -- over 210 million people in more than 185 countries and territories -- through various meetings.

    FYI: Although no "missions" have been scheduled yet for next year, Mr. Graham is not planning on quitting. Per the BGEA.
