Former president Jimmy Carter began his 10 a.m. Sunday school classes as he so often does: with a short update on his health. He stood before 300-some people - a mix of those who had traveled from down the street and across the country - and told them that he had visited his doctors this past week. Only this time, he came away with some good news.
"They didn't find any cancer at all," Carter said on Sunday.
The startled crowd broke into applause.
"Good God," one person said, according to video of the event from NBC.
"So a lot of people prayed for me," Carter continued, calmly, "and I appreciate that."
