The following is the transcript of a "ONE CALL NOW" update from Bishop David Hudson, Superintendent of the West Virginia / western Maryland District, UPCI:
"This is the bishop speaking, and I wanted to touch base with our West Virginia & western Maryland pastors and ministers. Trust you are doing well and had good church yesterday. I have been making progress, for which I praise God. I had my first immune therapy treatment specifically for the melanoma stage four cancer on Friday. Everything went very well, but Friday night I had some reaction, which is part of the situation, and my legs were so weak I was unable to stand. The doctor suggested coming to ER to get checked out for sure, and everything did check it out. They have kept me here Saturday and Sunday, and I have regained about 75% of my strength back in the legs. Thank you so much for your continued prayer and thoughts. I do rejoice at the reports that I get of those being filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized. I believe God is continuing to do good things across West Virginia and western Maryland. We will continue to pray and believe God for great things as our camps convene for Sunday school and youth, and churches are having their vacation Bible schools. We pray blessings upon you and your family and churches. God bless! It's good to speak to you today. May you have a blessed week."
