WOODSTOCK, Ga.

— 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

him.

“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.”
