Islamabad, Pakistan (IPP) - Billy Graham is currently on a world tour and is conducting his evangelical work in remote and dangerous places.
On Sunday he was in Pakistan and gave a moving sermon which brought tears to the eyes of many in the audience.
At the end of the sermon the organ began playing the moving hymn, "Just As I Am" and in the background the choir softly sang along.
Hundreds of people were walking forward to repent and be saved when a lot of talking suddenly stirred throughout the stadium.
Osama Bin Ladin was out in the open and he and a contingent of body guards tearfully approached the podium and together they knelt at Billy Graham's feet. Billy Graham ordered the crowd to hush up and he lifted his hands towards the heavens in prayer.
He prayed, Oh Lord of Lords, we thank you for sending your only begotten son to be among us and to give eternal life to all of us who need only to believe in this great sacrificial gift thou hast bestowed upon us. We remember the scripture that told us that "For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God". Thank you Lord, and in Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
A silence had fallen over the huge gathering and Bin Ladin arose before the great preacher from the west and tears flowed down his cheeks and seemed to rain down onto the floor below. His body guards were still crying also.
Each member of the group was given a large copy of the King James Bible and a dozen roses. Billy Graham looked at them all one by one and shook their hands. He then told them, "Blessed are the peace makers for they shall inherit the earth".
The lights were ordered to be dimmed and Bin Ladin was escorted out and driven away in a caravan of Toyota pick up trucks led by an olive colored Toyota Land Cruiser. On the ground in front of where the Land Cruiser had been parked lay a pile of AK-47's and other weapons left behind by the newly converted group. In the dust coveing the back of each vehicle someone had used their fingers to draw the sign of the fish.
