Former President Jimmy Carter always goes home to Plains, Georgia. The tiny town he calls a ”haven” was there when he got out of the Navy, when he left the Georgia governor’s office and when he lost the 1980 presidential election.

So after telling the world that a cancer diagnosis would force him to ”dramatically” reduce his humanitarian work, the Nobel Peace Prize winner had one natural place to go.

On Sunday, Carter will keep another part of his routine by teaching a Sunday School class at his small church, Maranatha Baptist Church.

The Rev. Jeremy Shoulta, the church’s pastor, says Carter is a frequent teacher there and attends worship ceremonies whenever he is in Plains. The church is expecting a crowd Sunday, days after Carter detailed his diagnosis.
