"This is our way of just spending time with God. People don't understand it if you don't do it. She was doing what she loved to do and what she felt God had called her to do." —Pastor John Boyd, whose wife, Evelyn, died after spending more than three weeks fasting in solitude in a locked bedroom. Boyd, the pastor of Higher Praise Full Gospel Ministries in Bartow, Fla., said his wife had fasted four times last year, once for 40 days. It is not known why she died this time.
