Family members report that Elijah Manuel Jackson died last week at the age of 99. Jackson was known in this area as one of the pastors for the House of Prayer for All Nations in Longview. He was born in Texas and lived in California and Portland before ending up in Longview at the church on 9th and Delaware in Longview. Jackson’s family tells the Daily News that they were actually on their way back to California when fate intervened; they were visiting Longview when the local pastor at the House of Prayer for All Nations took ill. Jackson was preaching in his place when the pastor died, and he stayed on. A memorial service was held Saturday at the House of Prayer for All Nations in Portland, with church officials and deacons from all over the region in attendance.
