Franklin Graham Statement on the Death of Cru Co-Founder Vonette Bright

Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, issued the following statement: 

"Vonette Bright will always be remembered as co-founder of Campus Crusade for Christ and the vibrant and loving wife of the late Bill Bright. But even more, she will be treasured for her vision of reaching out in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to young people around the world, encouraging them in their faith and exemplifying what God can do through one life. 

There are many attributes that come to mind when I think about Vonette, but the most compelling is that she was a prayer warrior. You could always count on her to direct people's minds and hearts to bringing everything before the throne of grace. 

Vonette Bright's legacy is that of Proverbs 31 :30, 'A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.'"
