Goodbye, for Now, Marcus Lamb

By James Robison Published on November 30, 2021

One of our neighbors and friends, Marcus Lamb, was ushered into the presence of the Lord Jesus early this morning. I remember like yesterday the day Marcus Lamb came to Dallas with his talented, beautiful wife, Joni, to share his vision. In that meeting with about 200 pastors, I said, “Marcus, I want to reach people with our television program early in the morning and before they go to bed — twice a day. I want to help you build your television network.”

By partnering with Daystar, we have shared the love of God expressed through the gift of His Son, Jesus, who died on the cross that we might find life now and forever more — the very life eternal that Marcus Lamb is now spending in the presence of God, along with many of our friends and our own precious daughter, Robin. I know Joni and the family’s hearts are heavy. I prayed for them and with them during this horrible battle. It appeared the victory was won a few days ago. Quite frankly, we were all stunned to hear the news. I thank God for Marcus, Joni and Daystar. I’m glad we are part of their family. We share the same passion Marcus had to share Jesus with people all over the world.

I want to say thanks to all of the partners at Daystar. You have done well. Keep up the wonderful work. Our prayers are with Joni and the children, and I’m thankful to say that I am close to the children — Jonathan, Rachel and Rebecca. May God comfort each of them, and the entire Daystar family.
