The radio preacher that predicted the world would end on May 21 is recovering from a stroke in a nursing home in Oakland, California. His radio show is also being replaced with interim programming. Harold Camping's daughter says her father moved from a hospital to a nursing facility where he can undergo rehab to gain strength after his stroke last month. Camping's Family Radio network is playing repeats until it decides on new programming. Camping predicted the world would end in 1994 and again this year and his media empire spent millions over seven years on billboards and other publicity about his pronouncements. Some of the money came from follower's donations.
