John Paul Jackson, an international speaker, author and founder of Streams Ministries International in Flower Mound, Texas, passed away on Wednesday due to medical complications, as Charisma News reported yesterday.
Jackson’s wife, Diane, took to Facebook to thank everyone for the prayer and outpouring of encouragement the family has received over the last year. Jackson’s ministry had called for urgent prayer over the weekend. Jackson had battled with cancer in 2014.
“After recovering miraculously from cancer surgery last summer and returning to the activities and ministry work he loved, we found out a few months ago that the pleurisy and inflammation John Paul was experiencing in his lungs could be a sign of something more serious,” Diane says. “Despite the heartfelt prayers from those closest to him and many of you around the world, my husband, John Paul, went to be with the Lord peacefully at our home this morning surrounded by family and loved ones.”
