Nabeel Qureshi underwent his eighth chemotherapy session in January.
In his blog, Zacharias said he recently visited Qureshi in his Houston, Texas residence and was delighted to see a “man of immense courage” who has kept his focus on God, fully convinced that no matter what happens, God is in charge of his situation, The Gospel Herald reported.
“His mind is stayed on our Lord. Nothing wavering—as sure as ever that he is in the hands of His Savior, come what may,” he said.
Zacharias urged members of the Christian community to also include Qureshi’s family in their prayers.
However, Qureshi has given up most of his speaking engagements since he was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer in August 2016. The following month, he confirmed that his condition had worsened, stating in a video update that his cancer had reached stage four, with doctors telling him that he only had a 4 percent chance of surviving five more years, The Christian Post reported.
Last November, he came out to personally attest to the miraculous healing power of Jesus. After four rounds of chemotherapy, he posted a video update on his Facebook page, saying he had made “remarkable” progress in his battle against cancer.
Qureshi said the cancerous lymph nodes near his stomach no longer pose problems although there is still one lymph node away from his stomach that is still considered “actively cancerous.” But even that lymph node has decreased in size and glucose uptake.
“To make a long story short, some things have been totally healed and the rest has been partially healed,” Qureshi explained. “There is no new tumor.”
