Truth Matters Newsletter – Oct 2004 – Vol. 8 Issue 10 – Jan Crouch, Co-Founder of TBN Admitted to Hospital
I had just finished the article on Paul’s Perils and checked my e-mail to receive the following story. I add it to this issue because in last month’s issue towards the end of Jan’s mystical “uplifting” account she stated emphatically that “Then, the absolute knowledge in my heart and mind, flooded me: “that my body was healed.” I felt assured that the miracle was complete, and PEACE, JOY, TEARS, HOPE, COMFORT overwhelmed me.” (1)
It seems that Jan’s “absolute knowledge” of heart and mind was at best a bit faulty. Her body, sadly, is not “healed.” She is suffering from acute pancreatitis.
I admit I am not a physician but it is my understanding that the major cause of pancreatitis is due to alcohol or substance abuse in most cases (see the following article on the Crouches concerning their drinking.) Gall stones are fairly common, but considering her battle with colon cancer last year it may be possible that she is facing more of the same battle. Time will tell. We certainly ask you to pray for Mrs. Crouch.
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 24, 2004–TBN officials confirmed that Mrs. Jan Crouch, wife of Pastor Paul Crouch, founder of Trinity Broadcasting Network, has been admitted to an undisclosed California hospital, after being taken to the emergency room for severe abdominal pain.
Mrs. Crouch has been diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and gall stones. There is no word on how long she will be in the hospital. Jan Crouch is well known for her humanitarian relief efforts and work with children on the island of Haiti. Paul Crouch, Jr. eldest son of the Crouches, requested prayer for his mother on TBN.
