In these days following Billy Graham’s death, perhaps Wayne has never been busier.  He wrote to me over the weekend with poignant accounts of people who have arrived at the library in recent days, many of them who knew little about Rev. Graham, drawn to a deeper understanding of God through media accounts they have observed.  If you know Wayne at all, you can envision him serving each person he encounters, regardless of circumstances.

The world is better because of the ministry of Billy Graham and the humility and effectiveness of Wayne Atcheson.
