“I want to give us an opportunity to multiply our impact,” Senior Pastor Brian Tome told his congregation in a Nov. 23 sermon announcing the chance to give. “They’ll get a letter that says, ‘Congratulations, your debt has been paid because someone loves you and there is a God that has not forgotten about you.'”

On Sunday, the pastor read aloud a message from one of the lucky beneficiaries.
“I received this piece of mail in this bright yellow envelope and started to throw it away,” the pastor read. “But when I saw that it said your medical debt has been paid, I thought, ‘seriously, wait a minute.’ When I read it I got emotional – the person continued – because I have been so needing a break with getting my credit together. I really appreciate the gift.”
The church wiped out debt for 41,233 households in Ohio for a total of $42.8 million, 2,974 Kentucky households abolishing $1.9 million in debt, 503 Tennessee households for $1.5 million, and 136 Indiana homes for $200,000, FOX 19 reports.
