The former president broke his hip last month when he fell while heading out to go turkey hunting.

Former President Jimmy Carter has returned to teaching Sunday school at Marantha Baptist Church after recovering from a hip replacement surgery.

Carter broke his hip in May when he fell while heading out to go turkey hunting, according to an article from CBS News.

Carter joined his wife and former First Lady, Rosalynn Carter, who had broken her hip as well earlier in the month.

"Rosalyn broke her hip because of osteoporosis three weeks before I did," Carter said.

This injury comes soon after Carter’s achievement as the longest living President in the country’s history and his victory in the fight against his cancer diagnosis. The former title-holder was former President George H.W. Bush who lived to the age of 94 years and 171 days.

“The milestone came despite a cancer diagnosis more than three years earlier. Mr. Carter disclosed in 2015 that he had melanoma that had spread to his liver and brain. He received treatment for seven months until scans showed no sign of the disease,” CBS reported.

Upon returning to his teaching post in Sunday school, Carter assured churchgoers that both he and his wife are receiving nursing care at home.
