Dearest Graham family,
My heart and prayers go out to you in your loss. Mike will be sorely missed. I cannot begin to put into words how thankful I am to the LORD for Mike's leadership in my life at the BSU during my time at A&M, but I will try. I came knowing Jesus as Savior, but left knowing Him as my LORD. God began to grow me into a leader, and he used Mike and his teaching of God's word to do it. That was also when a heart for missions was planted in me. When I found myself in the midst of my parents' divorce I was encouraged and comforted and found a firm foundation in God. One of the teachings I have come back to again and again has to do with waiting on God. As Mike used to say, "Timing is everything." How true I have found that to be in trusting God as a single person at age 27, going to China as a missionary for 3 years, and then being led back to TX to meet my husband. How true that has been as we followed God's leading to work with high school students in London, England and after years of prayer have just welcomed our precious daughter into the world. I will be forever grateful to the LORD for Mike's presence in my life and for his life-changing ministry.
