Hats off to Community Bible Church in San Antonio for donating $100,000 to Childress Memorial Church of God to help replace their building after a devastating fire last week.
Actually, the church has been the scene of six fires over the past two months. All are suspicious in nature.
Here’s how it went down, according to a news report:
After seeing reports of the fire that destroyed the Childress Memorial Church of God in Christ Saturday, Pastor Robert Emmitt of the Community Bible Church knew he had to help.
“I came into church and one of my pastors…said, ‘What’s going on?’ I said, ‘Well, sit down and close the door, here’s what the Lord put in my heart,’” said Emmitt.
Earlier that day, the pastor contacted the elders in his congregation to get their blessing on his idea. Once he got it, he wrote a check for $100,000 and gave it to Bishop Samuel Iglehart just moments before he led his church in its first service since Saturday’s fire.
EXCELLENT. EXCELLENT. EXCELLENT!
