(Joan and I just celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary … and the principles proclaimed by the Graham family – Billy, Franklin, Ann Graham Lotz, and Will Graham – are the themes that have guided our lives through joys, trials, but with always a desire to please God.
Since the local “base” for our broadcasts is St. Louis, MO, we are delighted that St. Louis is one of the cities that the Franklin Graham “tour” includes our location!
On Tuesday, September 21, 2021 the site of this STL-area location is the World Wide Technology Racetrack just across the Mississippi River from the famous “Arch“ in Madison, IL.
In the case of St. Louis, the decision to have this Tuesday night (September 21, 2021) located at the racetrack may have been influenced by the founder of World Wide Technology’s founder, David Steward. Several years ago I did radio with David about his book: Doing Business By the Good Book!
In a world with many pockets of racism, David Steward, a black follower of Jesus, must have followed the principles in his book. Growing up in a small town in Missouri, whatever racism he may have experienced, he apparently “stepped on it” to become one of the most successful black businessmen – if not the most successful—in the United States, if not the world! God has certainly blessed David Steward and his wife Thelma.
He taught open Sunday School classes that Joan and I attended several times through the years.
Coming with Franklin Graham the evening of September 21 at the WWT Racetrack are guests making appearances such as “The Newsboys,” (See www.newsboys.com) for other entertainers. To help you find the location, it is 700 Raceway Blvd, Madison, IL 62060 United States + Google Map
