Speaking at one of the late night-early morning services held outdoors in Pusan, attended by thousands of Koreans and American soldiers. Graham is at pulpit, Bob Pierce is seated to Graham's left.

"I was dressed in the heaviest clothes I had brought, including fleece-lined boots, but I was still chilly. The temperature was about 20 degrees [Fahrenheit] and a cold wind was blowing from the snow covered mountains. I felt sorry for those poor people sitting on tiny straw mats or standing in the mud. I doubt that in America we could find people that eager to hear the Gospel!"

From I Saw Your Sons at War/The Korean Diary of Billy Graham
