Charles Shelton

In a previous update we requested prayer for Charles Shelton, the pastor of the London, KY congregation. Here is an update written by Charles.

Hi all,

The doctors have determined that my cancer is follicular lymphoma, type B small cell. The good news is that it is treatable. The bad news is that it is regarded as incurable.

The doctors will not comment on the mortality time frame. The internet says I have from less than one year to 20 years (with a median of 10 years).

I began chemo recently. I guess we will have to see how the cancer responds. Regardless, I know I am in God’s hands, and that is good enough for me.

I want to thank all of you for your calls, cards and prayers. They have been a comfort to me and my family.

Yours in Christ,

Charles Shelton
