"Laurie and I have just watched the transition of our precious Mother from this world to the next; watched her step into the presence of Jesus and into her heavenly reward. Jan Crouch, known around the world as Momma Jan, has gone home.

"Those who battled for the Kingdom of God knew her as a fighter — someone who didn't give up, someone who fought relentlessly to get the Gospel around the world."
