Christian leader, author and founder of World Trumpet Mission, Dr John W. Mulinde has announced some positive updates regarding his health.
Through an official statement issued Friday by Pastor Larry Alberts (Director, Body of Christ International and Board Member World Trumpet Mission), and Mr Peter Michael Ouma (Senior Pastor, Kampala Trumpet Centre – World Trumpet Mission), the ministry revealed that “there is no cancer in Dr John’s body.”
This came after biopsy results released by medics in India this week “showed and confirmed conclusively” that Dr John’s “pancreatic tumour is not cancerous.”
“Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. On behalf of World Trumpet Mission Uganda, we would like to thank all of you for your prayers for the sincere love you have shown and for your sacrificial giving.
We are writing to provide an update on the progress of Dr John’s treatment in India. As many of you have heard, Dr John’s first biopsy had led the doctors to determine that they could not do an immediate surgery to remove the cancerous tumor from the pancreas because the tumor had already grown and engulfed a major blood vessel that supplies to the intestines. Thus, they made a decision to do chemotherapy and radiant for about nine weeks, to reduce the size of the tumor first, then do surgery to remove it.
However, the biopsy left them with questions regarding the true nature of the tumor. The doctors could not day for sure if it was cancerous! They needed another biopsy to get conclusive results. They therefore, decided to conduct a second biopsy to truly establish the nature of the tumour. This exposed another challenge; that the bile and pancreatic ducts seemed to be partially blocked. if they ended p fully blocked, this would lead to jaundice with would complicate the ability to apply chemotherapy and radiation.
The doctors decided that an immediate operation was necessary to conduct a by-pass to the liver and pancreatic ducts in order to avoid the blockage, thus allowing for chemotherapy and radiation to proceed. This operation was carried out on the 17th February 2022. It was a Laparotomy operation, accompanied by a third biopsy to make conclusive determination of the nature of the tumour.
The good news, and for which we give all praise to God is that:
The blockage of the ducts was a false alarm. The threat was far removed from the risk area and it was decided that the by-pass would not be necessary.
The third biopsy results showed and confirmed conclusively that Dr John’s pancreatic tumor is not cancerous. There is no cancer in Dr John’s body.
The doctors are of the view that the tumour is a result of “auto immune pancreatitis”. They are conducting further tests to confirm this and to determine the new course of treatment that will be required.
We want to lift praises to God for this development. This far He has brought us and we glorify Him for everything. Please do not relax the prayers through as the tumor is still on his pancreas. We need to continue praying until full victory is achieved. We also need to continue supporting the medical process without sacrificial giving.
When the results are out and a course of treatment has been agreed, we shall provide another update, including a revised plan for treatment and costs. We have also been assured that Dr John is recovering steadily from last week’s surgery.
Thank you again for all your love, prayers, and financial support towards Dr John W. Mulinde. please continue praying, giving, and supporting the process until full victory has been declared. We shall keep you updated accordingly.“
