If you’ve heard anyone speaking about spreading the gospel, they are merely speaking of spreading the ‘good news’ of Jesus Christ, including all that he does and is able to do. Rev. Enoch Fuzz, pastor of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church, was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. With fervent prayers and positive thoughts since the beginning of this journey, Rev. Fuzz has good news to share.
During this approximately three-year journey with cancer, Rev. Fuzz has undergone an extensive amount of health care. He had unexpected visits to the emergency room, and often spent nights, days, and sometimes weeks in the hospital. As different medical challenges occurred, Rev. Fuzz also had several changes in diagnoses that required additional or different medications that would create other medical situations. It’s an ongoing battle with cancer-related care, meds, and treatments attacking where the cancer exists.
Nevertheless, Rev. Fuzz reported this week: “I absolutely do have good news. Cancer didn’t grow in the past four months, even though I haven’t been taking the cancer pills for three months.”
He said that he’s going to discontinue the cancer medication, hoping the side effects it causes will also cease. He also notes that his breathing is noticeably improved.
“This is kinda amazing!” Fuzz said.
While this is definitely good news, Rev. Fuzz remains in a precarious state of health and should remain careful with his ‘coming and going.’ Yes, this is good news worth spreading, just like the gospel of Jesus Christ. But because he has not magically been cured, Rev. Fuzz is still in need of continued prayers. He needs prayers for complete healing. He is also praying for others as well. What God can do through prayers, believing, a positive attitude, and following doctor’s orders is amazing. Share your good news so that others will know that God’s gospel is available to all!
