Lyndall was born January 13, 1936, in Melber, Kentucky to Herbert and Ferrell (Nipper) Jackson. He was the youngest of five, raised on the family farm. In 1955, he graduated from Lowes High School, in Lowes Kentucky. He then moved to Detroit, Michigan where he met and dated Judith and worked for Metal Molding and A&P Warehouse. He returned to Kentucky and attended Murray State Teacher’s College before being drafted into the US Army in December of 1959. He was sent to Germany where he worked in the motor pool as a mechanic. During a leave from the service, he returned to Detroit where he married Judith Johnson, his lifetime love, on January 6, 1961. He was honorably discharged in February 1962. Upon his return to the states, he worked for Standard Oil in Paducah, Kentucky before the family moved to Detroit, Michigan where he worked for Chevrolet Gear & Axle.
In August 1971, the family moved to Lubbock, Texas, where Lyndall attended the Sunset School of Preaching and the School of Missions, graduating in January 1974. As a missionary in Worcester, Massachusetts for almost twelve years, he shared the Gospel message and converted many to Christ.
