Doomsday Evangelist Recovering from Stroke

Ad Feedback

The doomsday radio evangelist who sparked controversy with his end-of-the-world predictions is resting in an Oakland, Calif., hospital after suffering a mild stroke.

The 89-year-old president of the nonprofit Family Radio was taken by ambulance from his Alameda home on June 9.

"He is presently recuperating in a local hospital and the doctors are pleased with his progress," Family Radio's special projects coordinator Michael Garcia said. "Mr. Camping's family appreciates your thoughts and prayers."

"He's doing quite well," Camping's daughter Susan Espinoza said. "We haven't made a decision on what will happen with the radio broadcasts but for now they are playing recorded programs."

Last month, Camping predicted that the rapture would occur May 21 and all true Christians would be taken from the earth. When nothing happened, Camping said that it was actually a spiritual judgment day.

His new prediction is that the world will end on Oct. 21.
