PAGE IO-A HOGANSVmLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, AUG. 19, 2004 MAN OF ACTION - Father David Jones was also instrumental in helping to establish St. Matthew's Charismatic Episcopal Church in Hogansviile. 'To See Him Walk Out' Minister Uses Faith to Defy the Odds, Beat Cancer In August 2001, Father David Jones of Newnan, experienced a life threatening brain surgery. After five years of being misdiagnosed as having a stroke, Jones was discovered have a virulent, malignant brain tumor and emergency surgery was scheduled. Later the same day after surgery, he began to hemorrhage and blot clots were discov- ered. The doctors again rushed him into emer- gency surgery and instructed his wife to "gather the family members." Following the surgery, a physician asked his wife, Pat, WChat are your expectations?" She replied, '"To see him walk out of the hospital." The doctor said, "That's not a realistic expectation." If Jones survived the surgeries and his weeks in the hospital, the doctors said, he might never regain his functions and, in any event, since they could not get all the can- cer, his life expectancy was no more than eighteen months. " Now, three years and several MRI's later, Jones has shown no sign of the can- cer and leads worship at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings for Christ the King Charismatic Episcopal Church and celebrates Holy Eucharist each Wednesday evening at the church. Jones was also instrumental in helping to establish St. Matthew's Charismatic Episcopal Church in Hogansville. Father David Epps, pastor of Christ the King, said, "Father David is a reminder to us every Sunday that God can do the impos- sible. He is an icon of the grace of God." Christ the King is located on Highway 34 between Peachtree City and Newnan. St. Matthew's is located at 302 Main Street in Hogansville. Ready to Plant Seedlings?
