PLAINS — President Jimmy Carter will not be teaching his Sunday school class on Sunday, according to a statement from The Carter Center.

The statement says that although he is progressing well, Carter underestimated the amount of time he would need to recover from his recent hip replacement. He and his wife Rosalynn appreciate everyone’s support and prayers and apologize for any inconvenience to those who traveled to hear his lesson. In their absence, Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, still welcomes all visitors. The Carters’ niece, Kim Fuller, will teach the Sunday school lesson and, he said, “no one will be disappointed.”
