Gifts his parents a house
On January 21, John posted a touching video to his Instagram account sharing the moment he surprised his parents with a house. It actually happened several years ago, but he kept it private until recently.
The video started with both his parents thinking that they would be doing an interview, but it turns out to be just a prank.
“On behalf of myself, I’d like to say thank you for everything that you’ve done,” he says. “I decided to do a secret project for a few months, and I’m here to tell you that there was no interview that was a lie, this is your house that I am presenting to you.”
When they realized that John had bought them a house, they both became emotional.
“It’s your prayers that got this,” John explained to his parents. “Because the skill and the ability that I have received have been from your prayers… Honestly from the bottom of my heart, thank you so, so much for everything you have done.”
