Tammy Faye Heads Home

Evangelist Tammy Faye Bakker-Messner's Battle with Cancer is Over at 65
After not hearing her name or thinking about her for years she was mentioned at a meeting I was at Thursday evening and she was on Larry King Live Thursday evening and passed away Friday morning. I can't say I ever really enjoyed the PTL Club, but my parents watched it and many people loved the show. I was talking with my neighbour yesterday and he said he saw Tammy Faye on Larry King and that his Jewish mother used to watch the show all the time.

"Our family is deeply saddened by the news of the passing of Tammy Faye. She lived her life like the song she sang, 'If Life Hands You a Lemon, Make Lemonade.'" -Jim Bakker (Kansas City, Missouri)—Tammy Faye Bakker Messner, the former televangelist and Christian singer died Friday morning of inoperable cancer."

The full story is here.

Heritage Villiage (the former site of The PTL Club - or Praise the Lord Club) is now owned by a number of Christian organizations who are operating a number of ministries from that site. Morningstar Ministries, a Christian conference centre and a 24 hour prayer ministry all host their ministries there.
