Pastor gives man facing challenges church offering and tithes

Meanwhile, previously reported that a pastor had gifted a man all the church's offerings and tithes.

The man who was shown kindness is said to be a pastor of another church who faced financial challenges that almost made him commit suicide.

The financial challenge was so bad the pastor sometimes could neither afford to feed himself nor his family for a whole day.

A statement from the church who showed the kindness partly read:

"...Because of his sad story, Apostle Victor Hounkpati gave all offerings, donations and every single coin that was received in the church that Sunday to this pastor to help him start life again from scratch."
