“And Jesus said to him,

‘Go; your faith has made you well.’

And immediately he regained his sight

and began following Him on the road.”

Mark 10:52 (NASB)

Update on Tommy Hood from his mother, Kenna:

This is where we are with Tommy’s cancer and treatment plan. After round 6 they re-assessed him and found NO tumor activity but there are still small areas where tumors are present. They have continued to shrink with every treatment. We get scans after every two treatments. Most people aren’t strong enough because of the severity of the treatments and can’t get the total 12 rounds. The sarcoma doctor said Tommy is a “rockstar” and we will get the entire 12 treatments followed by 5 weeks of radiation (5 days a week) to target any areas he has remaining. This is important because of the type of cancer and how nasty it is. We are currently on round 8. And yes, Tommy is a “rockstar” because he is getting through these treatment like a bull! He is so strong! …We can’t wait to ring the chemo bell and then we will be counting down radiation treatments so we can ring the radiation bell. It’s a long road and a tough way to live the 23rd year of your life, but I know God has big plans for my boy! Thank y’all for all the prayers, calls, texts and messages. They help so much. I would never be able to hold him up through all this without my y’all! Sending much love to you all! Thank you soooo much!”And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”- ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:9‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Rev. Billy Graham’s son, Rev. Franklin Graham, had heart surgery.

“Franklin Graham successfully underwent a specialized heart surgery today at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota,” Mark Barber, Graham’s spokesman, wrote in a statement to Fox News. “In recent months, Franklin had developed constrictive pericarditis, inflammation, and hardening of the sac around the heart that compresses the heart and prevents it from working properly. The surgery involved removing the pericardium. 

“His doctors expect a full recovery and assured him that he should be able to return to his normal activity and ministry schedule,” Barber added. “Mr. Graham said that he is looking forward to multiple opportunities across the globe in 2022 to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and invite people to put their faith in Him. He is also eager to resume riding his motorcycle by springtime. He and his family appreciate everyone’s prayers.”
