By Marva Sneed

On “From Marva with Love,” we heard from Sherry L. Smith is an ordained minister alongside

her husband, Pastor Johnny V. Smith, to whom she’s been married to for 38 years. Minister Sherry is actively involved in her husband’s ministry as Co-Pastor of Light of the World Faith and Word Church in Arlington, Texas. She is also an Arlington Clergy and Police Partnership member and an Arlington Chamber of Commerce Life Member for almost 20 years. She is a breast and

lymphatic cancer survivor since 2004 who boldly shares her testimony of faith and healing.

MS: Minister Sherry tell us about your ministry.

SS: Yes I’m Co-Pastor of Light of the World Faith and Word Church. I have my ministry called “It’s All Good Cause It’s All God.” I celebrated 20 years of that ministry. It’s really about helping people to really walk and find their destiny. No matter what you’ve been through and no matter what you’re going through, there is nothing too hard for God. I worked for the Arlington Police Department for 15 years. After taking so many calls, and suicide calls, and things like that. I knew this was something I wanted to do. So here I am ministering people one on one in other groups and venues. And I just thank God for that opportunity.

MS: Minister Sherry you have another story to tell a story that has a major Blessing in it. Tell us your story.

SS: My story is that in the year 20? It’s been so long now; I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Unexpectedly there was a lump in my breast that I did not know about. It was found by my husband. He was there and he said the Lord told him to feel in this one spot and he did and found the lump. He said feel this lump and I was so shocked that it was there and you could actually feel it there. I went to the doctor. I wasn’t nervous I had to figure out what this is. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and it had already traveled to my lymph nodes. I had a choice to take the lymph nodes and remove my breast or do a lumpectomy and very extensive chemo and radiation treatment and I could keep my breast. I chose lumpectomy. I had the chemo first and lost all of my hair and my fingernails and toenails. Keeping in mind I still had ministry work on the books to go speak and talk. I took my chemo bag with me to minister. I told God if he walked with me through these chemo treatments that I wouldn’t cancel one assignment…
