VIDEO: Church Pays Off Millions In Medical Debt For 6,500 Families
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by The Daily Wire:
On Sunday, the senior pastor of Stetson Baptist Church in DeLand, Florida revealed to the congregation how many lives will be impacted by their generous giving. Over the course of a single week, the church, which has only about 350 members, managed to raise enough money to pay off all of the medical debt of financially struggling families in five counties — some 6,500 families who were being crushed by a total of $7.2 million in debt — and fund three foster care facilities for a year.
“In the coming weeks, some 6,500 people in five Central Florida counties will get a letter in the mail telling them the crippling medical debt they owe has been paid off, no strings attached,” the Orlando Sentinel reported Wednesday. “It’s not a scam. It’s an act of faith worth $7.2 million to the struggling families.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The idea for the special offering was prompted by the church having already met the financial needs of its annual operating budget this fiscal year, and the year containing 53 Sundays rather than 52, as is more common, the outlet reports.
The 350church members were able to raise three times the amount Senior Pastor Dan Glenn projected: $153,867.19 by the end of the week.
