Remembering a World-Changer

“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.” (Hebrews 13:7, NIV)

Jean Darnall was ushered into Christ’s glorious presence on January 11. She would have turned 97 today. Miraculously healed, converted and filled with the Spirit at 15 years of age, Jean answered the call of God to take the Foursquare Gospel to the ends of the earth.

The Foursquare Gospel is all about THE World-Changer Himself: Jesus Christ the Savior, the Baptizer with the Holy Spirit, the Healer, and the Soon Coming King. This is the full gospel of Jesus Christ, no corners cut. And this is what Pastor Jean was all about.

For 80 years Jean preached Christ, always speaking the truth in love and ministering in the power of the Spirit. The global impact of her life was profound, especially in Panama, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Truly her life was an amazing testimony of faithfulness and fruitfulness.

What impressed me most about this world-changer, however, was how she changed MY world. Pastor Jean was a dear friend, mentor, and mother in the faith. To “imitate [her] faith” is my sacred duty and delight.
