ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Evangelist Billy Graham is in the hospital in Asheville with a respiratory congestion issue, his spokesman told the Associated Press.

The 95-year-old was taken to Mission Hospital on Tuesday for respiratory problems, according to the spokesman.

Graham, 95, has been hospitalized multiple times in the past over similar health concerns.

“As was the case then, we expect he will be able to return home in a day or two,” Mark DeMoss said in a statement.

For six decades, Graham led a worldwide crusade-based ministry that packed stadiums with believers and allowed him to counsel every U.S. president since Harry Truman. His most recent book, “The Reason for Hope: Salvation,” was released in October.
