TV Evangelist Oral Roberts, died today at 91 years old.
A posting on the Oral Roberts Ministries site Tuesday, stated Roberts had been admitted to hospital over the weekend after a fall and had been suffering symptoms of pneumonia.
Evangelist Billy Graham has released the following statement:
“Oral Roberts was a man of God, and a great friend in ministry. I loved him as a brother. We had many quiet conversations over the years. I invited Oral to speak at one of our early international conferences on evangelism held in Berlin in the 1960’s.
“Oral was preceded in death by his wonderful wife Evelyn, who I also knew and loved. She was a woman of God, and a powerful prayer warrior.
“Just three weeks ago, I was privileged to talk to Oral over the telephone. During the short conversation, he said to me that he was near the end of his life’s journey. I look forward to the day that I will see Oral and Evelyn Roberts again in Heaven–our eternal home.”
