— Follow-up tests for Johnny Hunt show him clear of cancer, according to a
spokesman for the president of the Southern Baptist Convention.
Jim Law, executive pastor of the Atlanta-area
First Baptist Church
in Woodstock where Hunt is pastor,
shared Hunt’s doctor’s report that there was “no trace of cancer” and he “could
not be more pleased” with Hunt’s prognosis.
According to the doctor, he is “healing well,” Law said.
Hunt underwent surgery to remove his prostate Jan. 7.
“Dr Hunt would like to extend his heartfelt appreciation to all who have prayed
for him and his family during this time,” Law said. “God has been faithful and
has used you all to be such a great source of encouragement and blessing to
“He is deeply grateful.”
Law asked Southern Baptists to continue to pray for Hunt’s complete healing,
and said Hunt expressed that he “was excited about seeing how God will use
Southern Baptists at an even greater way in the days ahead.”
