ABOUT THE PASTOR


Pastor Walton begin his ministry at Faith Church in January of 2005, serving as the Assistant Pastor until December of 2006. In January of 2007, he assumed the ministry of senior Pastor and continues to this day. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology.
Pastor Walton started out in ministry traveling (in his late teens) the state of Florida preaching youth meetings and summer camps. He has taught junior and senior high Bible, computer, and history classes for Christian schools, was Dean of the Anchor Baptist Bible College in Pisgah Forest, NC, and served as the AWANA missionary to the state of Florida and the Caribbean Islands.
Pastor Walton is married to Melodie, and they have three children and eight grandchildren.

This journey began in 2014 when I noticed I was tired all the time. All doctors tests reported stress related fatigue and life continued. The Beginning of 2015 I was feeling more tire and my back was giving me more trouble. In April and May I had two adjustments that created pain in my collar bone and rib cage. I then began a journey beginning in June that took me from my primary care doctor to specialists, to 5 emergency room trips and two hospitalizations and wrong diagnosis of osteoporosis.

The second time I was admitted the emergency room noticed something on the xray that concerned them which didn't appear the week before. They asked if we had an oncologist that we knew of. We knew of a one, but they sent someone in their group. I was admitted from the ER to my room at 7P:15 and within one minute I was being seen by this new Cancer doctor. He was very direct, up front, and gave what he thought was going on. He then proceeded to order tests to (as he stated) try to disprove his theory. As each day came with its new tests, I was amazed to see him within hours of the test with the results. He was right on top of everything.

Through the 8 day stay, it was determined that I had Multiple Myeloma (a rare bone, blood cancer that causes the calcium to leach from the bones and make them brittle and was to break). I have multiple rib fractures and even more stress fractures in my back. I was released from hospital to the care of my oncologist.

The treatments started on Wednesday, September 9, and will ongoing on a weekly basis in 28 day cycles until remission (or removal as we are praying).  These are expensive treatments, but the Lord has been good on of the most expensive drugs. We were informed that it has been taken care of for a very long time. Praise the LORD!!! Melodie or I will post more as the days go by.

The two big prayer requests are - The pain levels getting down below 5. They are 10 and higher a lot during the day and night, sometimes go down to a 5, and there are rare times when it is lower than a 3. The second is for the removal (Miracle by God) of this bone disease and if not, remission. But the overriding prayer is - NOT MY WILL BUT THINE LORD. He's All I Need, He's more than enough!U

**************************************************************************************************************

UPDATE: Wed, September 16, 2015 - Started the day at the doctor's office. Blood work was done to make sure the blood counts were OK for cycle 2. They were! Each cycle consists of 7 days starting on Wednesday, and running through Next Tuesday. Shot was given, and pills were given for the week. Now back at home resting for the Prayer Meeting service tonight. Oh the Joy of being with God's people. Thank you for all your prayers. Till the next update - Keep looking up - Jesus may come today!!!

********************************************************************************* 

 UPDATE: Fri, September 18, 2015 - Another trip to Ocala this morning. Went to pain management doctor. They were going to put in a pain pump, but after talking to the Oncologist and pain doctor, the LORD has been so good - the pain level has been low for the amount of rib and stress fractures that I have. Since I only need the pain pills occasionally - it was determined to take as needed based on my current status of nor so much needed every 4 hours but more 8 to 16 hours. PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS GRACE AND GOODNESS. These trips into town do take their toll, but all in all things are still looking good. It is all in the Saviour's hands, and that is where we want it!!!!!

***************************************************************************************

UPDATE: September 20, 2015

Not only back to preaching but back in pulpit again. Have a chair that sits up high that allows to sit down and see the pulpit area and preach. It was a great morning. Looking forward to tonight at 6pm. The Lord sure is good. Talked this morning and continuing tonight on "Blessed are the Pure in Heart, for they shall see God". See you at the house!!

***************************************************************************

UPDATE: Wed, September 23, 2015 - Cycle 1, week 3 started today. Wasn't sure if the blood counts would allow me to continue this week, as I developed a bad cold with deep coughing. Very painful at times. Have been battling this since last Thursday, so hoping it is on the run now. We are in week 3 of cycle 1 and praying for great results. God is able! Remember we server a personal Saviour, not an idol! I Talk to the creator God, who loves me so much that He gave his only Son to die me.Thank you for your prayers!

***************************************************************************

UPDATE: Mon, September, 28, 2015 - Well they say when you are on a series of drugs that your days an be measured in good or bad. The past 5 five have been bad days with nausea, severe drainage from major cold adding to it. I was not able to to go to church yesterday which was a disappointment to me. I am praying for a better week, however, today has been bad. I am supposed to start round four on Wednesday with an added medication - a high powered bone repairing IV for three hours. Pray that this causes my breaking bones to mend, strengthen, and heal. The last time I had any bone building repair meds was in the hospital back at the first of the month. Thank you for your prayers! They mean everything, and I believe are working!!! Keep looking up - He may come and get us all today!!!!

*******************************************************************************

UPDATE: Oct 8, 2015- Well its been a while. I have been battling bilateral pneumonia for weeks. Am on high powered meds for it. It has been hard, because when I cough or sneeze the bones that are broken in my back and ribs cause me severe pain. It seems to be better now. Please pray that the Lord helps some to get rid of the pneumonia quickly and totally, otherwise the doctor says I will end up in the hospital with a treatment that is extremely expensive (over 10,000). We continue to take the treatments for the bone disease. I finished the four weeks in cycle one and began cycle two week one this past Wed. They also took blood to be tested to see if the treatments are working against the myloma. Thank you again for all your prayers - they mean everything!

************************************************************************************

UPDATE: WED, Oct 14, 2015 - The good news of the day is that the first set of blood work to see if the treatments are working showed a 60% drop in the bad cells. We praise the Lord for this, and continue to pray for further reduction to zero. I did spike a low grade fever today - but that happens from time to time on Wednesday's. Wednesday is the beginning of the new week in the cycle, and all the meds repeat. The worst ones are given on Wednesday. All in all - a great day! Keep praying and thank you for praying!

********************************************************************************

UPDATE: Mon, Oct 19, 2015 - Praising the Lord for being able to preach for the first time in 5 to 6 weeks. Through Skype I was able to preach both services from my study to the church. This allows me to stay home while my immune system is so low and still preach. The Lord is good. Have had a couple of OK days. Cycle 2 - week 3 three starts on Wednesday. Thank you for praying and for the many thoughts, cards, letters and encouragements along the way!!

**************************************************************************************

UPDATE: Mon, OCT 26, 2015 - Preached yesterday morning, but was not able to preach in the evening. Always thrilled when I get to preach. The Wednesday routine has caused me to be sicker longer than it used too. Praying for a much better week this week. This is week 4 so I will also get on Wednesday the bone builder IV that is supposed to help repair my weak thin bones. Then in a week we take the blood work to see where we stand on bad cell count. Praying it is reduced to zero. Thank you for all your prayers on my behalf. You are a blessing!

*******************************************************************************

Thursday, February 11, 2016: It's been a while since I have updated. Sorry! Let's go back to the end of October. I was getting sicker each week. At my first doctor appointment in November I told the Doctor about the sickness getting worse. He told me to not take the low dose chemo pills that week, and just take the other pills and get the shot. I did much better. He told to take another week off the pills and I got better. Then he gave me a break for the week of thanksgiving from all meds. The first week in December He took me completely off the low dose chemo pills and I had to get the shots two times a week. I did three shots within 8 days and was sick again. He gave three weeks in December off of everything, and I had a great Christmas. In January my numbers came down significantly. I went back on the shot once a week and the high powered pills. I have not been as sick, but have had other side effects that are hard to deal with. My February numbers went down, but not by much. It seems strange they would go down more when I was off the meds than when I was on them, but at least it is still declining. I also went to the Chiropractor who found the bone problem in the first place and had him take x-rays of my back to see why I am so hunched forward and still in pain in the back. I still have stress fractures from the lumbar spine to the cervical spine. There are so many that as they collapse - they cause my back to fall forward. So we are still holding on.

In November, Evangelist Tim Thompson and his family felt led of the Lord to park their RV at our church and be a help to me. When I couldn't preach - he would. He led the singing and his wife played and they both sang specials in the services. Tim visited the sick for me, and Brittney helped in the nursery - organizing everything. They were a real joy and help, and i am so thankful.

Since the first of this year, I have been at all services. I have preached every service except for the special days - such as our missionaries at the Bill Rice Ranch coming in on a Sunday morning. And the first week in February (And still going on tonight and tomorrow night) Evangelist Doug Ramage has been our guest speaker for our winter revival meeting. He is a great friend from North Carolina. I preached yesterday at a chapel service for junior and senior high school and God showed up. There were so many decisions made, and I am humbled that God would use me to preach His Word.

The first week of March I will have the special blood work drawn again and the following week I will get the results. Pray that the numbers will all be normal as to the cancer count, and the numbers would be normal on the immune system. I have two numbers that are incredibly low.

Thank you fro Praying! God is at work and He is the one who has the final say in my recovery! Blessed be the Name of the Lord!

*******************************************************************************

Tuesday March 1 - The blood test that is done monthly came back for the first time with bad results. There are two numbers and and a ratio that they look at. The first number needs to come down and it went up - not much about 8 points, but still up. The second number stayed about the same,a nd the ratio went up when it needs to go down. Needless to say I was discouraged.

***********************************************************************************

Tuesday, April 5, 2016 - New monthly blood work taken today - Have to wait till next week for the results. The weekly blood tests done in the clinic has seen a rise to the high side in my Red blood cell count. There are three other numbers that stay every week in the high or low range of normal. Every Tuesday I get a shot in the stomach, and my stomach is very bruised and red. I take 10 pills between Tuesday and Wednesday to aid in the treatment, and 16 antibiotics each week. Thank you for your prayers. They are needed and are working!!

*********************************************************************

Tuesday, April 12 - New blood results show that the number that needs to go down - DID, by 32 percent - Glory!!!, and for the first time the second number went up (needs to go up) by about 50%. That made the ratio drop by 45%. This is the number the doctor goes by when determining treatment. Because of this good result - the treatment stays the same. He was thinking of adding another drug to the list. Thank you so much for your prayers. Please continue. I need a 70 percent or more rise in the second number and a 90 percent drop in the first number to be in the normal range. The two would make the ration normal. I should get another 30 day blood test the first Tuesday in May.

******************************************************************************

Tuesday, April 26, 2016 - Saw doctor today before getting shot and IV Zemeta for bone strengthening. He said when we do the next special blood test to see where we stand - fi the numbers come down in a big drop like last time, he would consider taking the treatments from once a week to every other week. Please pray the one number goes down by 90 percent and the other number goes up by 55 to 60 percent. That would put the ration back to normal. Also there are some immune numbers that need to go back to normal. The next end of cycle blood test is May 3, but the results won't be in for a week. Thank you again for your prayers - they are needed and work. I still have many side effects from the treatments and antibiotics they have me on. The biggest is extreme fatigue and inability to sleep because of the steroids.

***************************************************************************

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 - Saw doctor today before the treatment. They took the special blood test today. It has to be sent out and I will get the results next week. Doctor said if the numbers go down again, he will put me on an every other week treatment schedule. Praying for this.

*****************************************************************

Tuesday, May 24, 2016 - No doctor today - just treatment. However, I did get a copy of my blood work from last week. The one number went up (which is bad) by 10% and the second number went up (which is good) by 5% causing a 5% rise in the ratio (which is bad). Have to wait till next week to see what the Doctor says about this. I am feeling pretty low over this.

*********************************************************************

Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - Saw doctor today. Because of the blood number going up, he doesn't think it would be wise to go every other week. i was afraid of that. I have been fighting my emotions over this one. All I can do is hope and pray for a better blood test at the end of the June. Thank you all for your prayers and please keep them coming.

*********************************************************************

Tuesday, June 27th - Had blood work done and once again the one number went up 10% which is not good. The second number went up 3% which is good. The net result was another 7% for the worse.

*********************************************************************

Tuesday, Jully 5th - Asked the doctor for a break. I haven't had one since December of Last year. He said two to three weeks, but I asked for 5 weeks. Wanted to enjoy the grandchildren who were coming down for the month, and wanted to go on vacation with the family without the side efeccts and sickness from the treatments. He agreed - with a warning about the numbers going wrong.

*********************************************************************

Tuesday, August 2nd - Had the blood test done again for my counts - will get the results next week. Also had the bone builder IV treatment today.

*********************************************************************

Tuesday - August 9th - The result of the blood test yielded good and bad news, and the doctor had some surprising news. The bad - The top number went up again - by 38% this time. The good news - the second number went into the low end of the normal range (a 78% difference) The net ratio went down which is the number the doctor looks at. This was without any treatments for five weeks. The surprising news was the doctor said we would try every other week for treatments. I am praying that the top number comes down into the normal range and the other number stays in the normal range. Because of having the treatments every other week, the blood test will only be every two months instead of monthly. So, I wont get any news until the end of September. Thank you for your prayers and please keep them coming.

*********************************************************************

September - The Blood count top number again went up. The bottom number was more into the normal range. I am concerned about the number that keeps going up. 

*********************************************************************

October - No news to report - I will have a blood test at the end of the month and get the results next month.

*********************************************************************

November - The blood test showed again the top number going up by 23.6 percent. The Doctor Said today (November 28, 2016) that I am loosing the battle and he wants to add more drugs to the regimen. There is a drug that I said no to lasts year and he brought it up again. The drug company called me to warn me of the seriousness of the drug. I again said no. We are going to go one more cycle of the every other week to get through the Christmas season, then if the blood test in December comes back bad - I will have to go back to every week,, and contemplate what to do about another drug. Please pray for a Christmas miracle. My next blood test will be December 27. As I write this I have returned from the doctor and have been struggling with the bad news and what the future may hold - but  my Lord is still on the Throne and in charge. We will be waiting for the next blood test results. I don't see the Doctor again until early in the New Year. Thank you for praying

*********************************************************************

December 30th, 2016 - The blood work that was taken on December 27 came back today, and the results were not good. The top number continues to go up while the bottom number stayed in the normal range. Will have to see what the doctor says in a week.

***********************************************************

Monday - January 9, 2017 - The doctor wants me to go back to getting the shot every week to see if the numbers will come down. Not looking forward to the extra shots - but praying that will do the trick

**********************************************************

Monday, March 27th - well it's been a while since I have given an update. There have been several blood test sine the first of the year - and all of them show an increase in the top number and ratio. The very lasts blood test showed the bottom number going slightly out of normal. He wants to take another blood test today. If this one comes back the same then we will have to look at adding another drug.

**********************************************************

Monday, April 3, 2017 - Saw the doctor today and went over the blood test numbers. The top number went up again significantly, and the bottom number went way into the low range significantly. The ratio(the number the doctor goes by) went up by 96% - the worst ever. The shot is not working at all and has been discontinued. He once again brought up the drug that has serious side effects that are possible including stroke and heart attack. I really wanted to just go off of everything and not be so sick all the time, but decided to try this new drug out on a temporary basis. First they have to get the drug for me through a program where I don't have to pay for the medicine. It costs around $17,000 dollars a month. Please pray if I take this that the Lord would not allow any side effects to occur - especially the serious ones. Also pray that this will start bringing the counts back to normal. A big thank you for your prayers, love and concern.

********************************************************

May 8, 2017 - Had a sneezing attack and feels like some bones fractured again. Been in a lot pain. I am taking no medication and on vacation.

******************************************

May 26, 2017 - Had IV of the bone builder drug today. Also, had blood counts taken. Won't know the results until next week.

******************************************

June 1, 2017 - The numbers are in and the results are bad. I am now for the first time since 2015 back in the thousands on the top number. I have no choice now. I will have to take the dangerous medication that I have been avoiding and afraid of. Will see the doctor on June 7th and start the medication on June 12th.

******************************************

June 12, 2017 - Today I go back on the steroid and start the new medication - please pray for no side effects. Blood clots are common. There is a risk of stroke and heart attacks as well. It is a 21 day cycle and then 7 off. Please pray that the numbers go to normal and there will be no issues. Thank you so much.

*****************************************

June 19, 2017 - Blood test revealed that the liver is being affected by the new medication. The Doctor told me to stay off of it for a week and have another blood test. 

*************************************

June 26, 2017 - Liver tests OK - Back on the new medication for another week. Praying it goes better this time!

**************************************

July 3, 2017 - Blood tests again show elevated liver - back off of medicine again. Wait one week and check blood again.

**************************************

July 10, 2017 - Blood count oK - but Doctor is going to reduce the dosage of the medication from 25mg to 5. Will have to wait another week for new dosage to arrive

*****************************************************************************

July 17, 2017 - Back on med with new dosage

******************************************************************************

July 24, 2017 - Doctor feels the liver count is still going up to high (though it is much lower than before). We are going to try one more time after another week off of med

***************************************

July 31, 2017 - Going back on medication (5MG) again. I asked the doctor to please take blood for the cancer count as it has been two months since we have done so. The top number went way up last time. He felt it was a waste of money, since I have been on the medication pieced mealed I insisted and he said OK.

***************************************

August 3, 2017 - Cancer count came back. Even though the numbers are still way out of synch - there was improvement. The top number came down (which is good) and the bottom number came up (which is good). Not as much as was needed - but considering the off and on again way I have had to take the new medication - It is better than going further away. I am continuing to take the medication this week, hoping the blood test for the liver will OK on Monday! Praying for God'cs continued help, touch grace and mercy - Thank you for praying!

*****************************************

SEP 20, 2017 - Well its been a while since my last update. Monday August 7th, the blood results showed a rise in liver number again. I was to come back the next week for blood work and two weeks to see him. I sill had one more week of the 5mg medication left, so he told me to take the med every other day for 2 weeks and come back to see Him on Aug 28th. Even though the number was still high he ordered 2.5mg of the med and gave me the next week off. I was to come back on Sep 11th. Due to Hurricane Irma they were closed and the I got two weeks off. On Monday Sep 18th the liver count was still at the same high level. He told me to go ahead and take the 2.5 mg of med every day and get blood test next Monday. Pray that the liver count comes way down to normal. I am concerned because the number stayed the same even though I have been off the med for 2 weeks. In the past, one week off and the number came down. Pray there will be no liver or kidney damage, as well as the other life threatening side effects this medication has. Again, thank you for praying! They mean the world!!!!
