Some good news for a change – very touching



Many people refer to this time of the year as the “season of giving” and no one believes that more than pizza delivery man Jeff Louis. Jeff works for Gionino’s Pizza in Ohio and was asked to report to work earlier than usual the Sunday before thanksgiving. It seems that Life Point Church in Mentor, Ohio had decided to order a pizza but the pastor had a little surprise in store for Jeff.

When he arrived he was led to the stage of the church and each congregation member, in turn began to hand Jeff a tip. When it was all over, he had received more than $700! Pastor Ken Wright had originally planned to give Jeff a $100 tip but when he arrived the congregation surprised even him when they began to hand Jeff additional tip money.

So touched was Mr. Louis that he posted a very emotional vlog on YouTube to share his experience with others. In the video he states that he is struggling to stay free of drugs and it is quite clear how touched he was by the generosity shown to him by all of the members of Life Point Church. .

Currently his video has gone viral and has well over 1 million views. Pastor Wright says that “We can change the world one life at a time” and Jeff refers to himself as being “Blessed”. I couldn’t agree more. You can view the video at https://youtu.be/T4S2EyB9iTA.
