Evangelist Luis Palau Dies After 3-Year Cancer Battle

Evangelist Luis Palau, who played an influential role in Christian evangelism for 65 years, died early Thursday following a three-year battle with lung cancer.

A statement released by the Luis Palau Association said he died peacefully at his home in Portland, Oregon, at the age of 86.

He spent the early years of his Christian ministry as an intern with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, serving as a translator for Graham, who later helped Palau begin his own organization.

Palau had a special concern for his home country of Argentina and Latin America. He had two daily radio programs in Spanish, “Cruzada con Luis Palau” and “Luis Palau Responde.”

His message spread far beyond, however, and he held more than 500 evangelistic campaigns, festivals and rallies in more than 80 nations, including New York City, Buenos Aires, London, Madrid, Singapore, Hong Kong and Cairo.
