Jude 3 Project founder Lisa V. Fields successfully underwent a myomectomy on May 16 and is currently recovering from the surgical procedure.

“We are happy to share that Lisa’s surgery went well and she is now in recovery,” read an email from The Jude 3 Project team sent on Friday. “We are grateful to the Lord for answering our prayers and we ask that you continue to pray for a speedy recovery.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, a myomectomy is a major surgical procedure in which the medical team removes fibroids from the uterus. Uterine fibroids are “common noncancerous growths” and “usually develop during childbearing years, but they can occur at any age.” Black women are also reportedly three times more likely than White and Asian women to develop uterine fibroids — likely due to both genetic and environmental factors.

The Jude 3 Project team sent a similar email the day before Fields’ procedure, requesting prayer for her from ministry supporters. The initial prayer request specifically mentioned “a successful surgery, skilled hands for her medical team, and a smooth and speedy recovery.”

Fields, 37, is not only the nonprofit’s founder and CEO but also the host of many of its video productions and Courageous Conversations conferences. A popular apologist, she will also release her first book in August — When Faith Disappoints: The Gap Between What We Believe and What We Experience.

In a previous interview with Faithfully Magazine, Fields revealed that she initially had no interest in founding a ministry. However, her interest shifted from finance to theology when she took a religion course during her undergrad years.

“I had a real encounter with God during my freshman year of college, and then my faith became very real to me once I took a New Testament course during my second year of college,” Fields said. “I really wrestled with my faith. That’s when I decided to say, ‘I don’t understand all of the complex things that are in Scripture, but I’m going to devote my life to understanding them and helping other people understand them.’”

Jude 3 Project, founded in 2014, states that its mission is “to help the Christian community know what they believe and why they believe it,” emphasizing “equipping those of African descent in the United States and abroad.”
