    "Jack...was welcomed into Heaven by His blessed Savior and Lord who he had so faithfully served in ministry for over 70 years. Please pray for his beloved wife and lifelong ministry partner Rexella and their families as they grieve this immense loss and for wisdom as she and the Board lead the ministry in the days ahead."

    I was never a great fan of some of the ways and teachings of Jack Van Impe. Nevertheless, may the Lord bless and comfort his family in their time of loss.

    JVI had the entire KJV memorized. The closest thing to that is basketball great Jerry Lucas' ability to memorize 50 pages of the NYC phone directory in one sitting. ("Back in the day", pro basketball teams often traveled by bus, & Lucas would memirize phone boox to pass the time.)

    I dunno how long it took JVI to accomplish his feat, but he did it! (The KJV is easier to memorize for many people than a MV is, as the KJV's English is not our ordinary speech.)

    His wife seemed to be very nice and was no doubt very pretty while younger, and she seemed to be in awe in regards to how well he knew the scriptures!
