It’s Not The Winter Olympics – But It Is Billy Graham’s Largest Crusade In Seoul

The following story comes from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA):

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.
