The statement also indicated: "He said he feels fine and wanted everyone to know that he and Mrs. Carter are eager to be at Habitat for Humanity's Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Nashville, Tennessee, Oct. 6-11, starting with the opening ceremony this evening."
Earlier this year, Carter had a scare at his Plains home when he fell and broke his hip on the way to go turkey hunting, requiring surgery.
He was able to return to teaching Sunday school at his Plains church two weeks after that surgery, but told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last month that he has had “limited endurance.”

The former president has been going through what he has called “intense physical therapy” as part of his rehabilitation and has been using a cane to get around.
In Nashville, Carter and his wife, Rosalynn are expected to help construct 21 homes. This will be the 36th year the couple has participated in the project, where they have overseen the construction of more that 4,300 affordable homes in 14 countries since 1984.
