There is a lot going on in the city, in the state, in the world, and in the individual families. Everyone has something that has to be done and it seems to be so necessary for certain people to attend, specified assistants, and the pressing need for all things to be just as it is set up.
As a community leader and the pastor of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church, the Rev. Enoch Fuzz is called upon to attend or serve somehow for many planned activities. With his journey with stage four lung cancer, those activities often have an effect on his immediate well-being.
With that being said, he had this to say: “I’m not sure why it happens. Maybe it was the birthday parties, the walk in the mall or too many phone calls. I was determined to carry out baptism at church Sunday. But, I couldn’t do it. I’ve had to be on oxygen for the past week every day.
It doesn’t add up to me, but the doctor explains, ‘Rev you have stage 4 lung cancer.’ So this week I’m resigned to rest well, take my meds the way I am supposed to and further delegate the ministry responsibilities.
I’m truly blessed to have a good support team around me. Some people insist on talking to me but it’s not gonna happen. I’ve decided to beat this cancer and the Lord has blessed me to win so why lose? I’m very grateful for the many people that support me on this difficult journey. There’s not enough space in this article to name them, but I think about them all the time. There are so many things I wanna do today, this week, right now, but all of it is ill-advised.
I’m really proud that I’ve conditioned myself to just say No…. I’ve learned that it’s okay to say No sometimes and the world will still be here and you’ll still be in it. So, no matter how urgent they make it sound, believe me, it’s not that urgent.”
After three years on this difficult journey, the Rev. Fuzz is still in need of basic health care support—rest, meds, and following doctor’s orders. While all scheduled activities are important, it can still happen without his doing it all. It’s not that urgent that he is involved. What is urgent, is that he remains on his healing path.
Pastor Fuzz gives his support wholeheartedly as he remains on the path to healing and continues to ask for your prayers for a complete recovery. He is also in continuous prayer for others in whatever their journey may be.
