Update From Pastor Chuck

Published by: Amanda Knoke
January 24, 2014

Dear Church family,

As many of you have purposed to pray for Carol and me in this season that I am fighting prostate cancer, I wanted to give you an update since our trip to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, last week.

I want to praise God for answers to prayers already evidenced:

We found out …
1. My PSA already is below 8. I started with a PSA of 106. So praise God it has come down! My body is responding to the hormone therapy.
2. Mayo confirmed that the cancer was NOT in the bone or any other major organs!
