A Dallas megachurch donated $100,000 to senior citizens in need to help them pay their rent.
On Thanksgiving day, a Dallas megachurch offered $100,000 in rental assistance to 100 senior citizens in need. This is to ensure that despite the pandemic that is affecting the livelihood of these people, they would still have a shelter to live in. The church’s senior pastor is giving God the glory.
“Our ‘Home for Thanksgiving’ Praise Service was a tremendous blessing,” the church posted on Instagram. “Our special guest singers, Jessica Reedy and Tiffany Andrews were powerful, and one of the most inspiring moments of the service was IBOC’s surprise to 100 senior citizens. #IBOC Church and Pastor Rickie Rush are thankful that God positioned us to provide rental assistance to 100 senior citizens! Glory to God! IBOC has committed $100,000 to ensure these seniors are not evicted from their homes.”
The church has partnered with the Dallas County Precinct 1 Judge Valencia Nash, Judge Thomas G. Jones, and Constable Tracey Gulley to contact seniors in need.
“At a time like this, especially with the pandemic, it’s saying that we need to keep seniors in their home and do all that we can do,” said Judge Thomas.
One of the recipients of the donation is Betty Young, she testifies that it was an answered prayer for her. The funds ensure that she will have a roof over her head for a year.
“I was totally surprised,” Betty said. “God is an awesome God, and He works in mysterious ways. I was praying the other night, I didn’t know how my rent was going to be paid.”
Senior Pastor Rickie Rush told the congregation that they will be doing what they can do to help people in need.
“We give out turkeys. We get young people out of jail. Whatever God allows us to do. We’ve never before been able to say to somebody we don’t want you outside if we can help it.”
