Carter teaches Sunday School classes 3 days after cancer treatment

Former President Jimmy Carter has taught two Sunday School classes in his hometown of Plains, Georgia, three days after receiving radiation treatment for cancer.
    
The 90-year-old Carter gave one lesson to about 300 people filling the small Baptist church that he and his wife, Rosalynn, attend. Carter regularly gives the lessons and has been teaching classes since his teens.
    
Carter recapped the details of his health but moved on after a few minutes to a lesson on faith, love and personal relationships.
    
He encouraged the crowd to be faithful when faced with failure or disappointment. He suggested, "Say ‘God, I’m really troubled and I ask you to give me the strength to bear whatever I have on my shoulders and to face whatever comes to me.’"
    
He promised the crowd at the church he would be back to take photos with them after teaching a second class at the nearby high school.
