ASHEVILLE, N.C., Aug. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Evangelist Billy Graham remains at Mission Health & Hospitals in Asheville, N.C., where he was hospitalized Saturday for evaluation and treatment of an intestinal bleed. He is listed in fair condition


Mr. Graham's staff and family said that he is steadily improving. He watched the televised service of First Baptist Church of Spartanburg, S.C., led by Dr. Don Wilton, as he does each Sunday at home, then ate a Sunday chicken dinner. He has been walking in the hallways near his room, and continues to visit with friends and family.


No date has been set for discharge, but family members say they hope his hospital stay will be brief, given his improvement.
