That was extremely unexpected!
Members of Sycamore Creek Church in Pickerington, Ohio, recently did something absolutely amazing for a Domino’s pizza delivery driver named Natasha.
When Natasha arrived at a church gathering on Oct. 4 to deliver a $5.99 pizza, reported The Columbus Dispatch, the lead pastor Rev. Steve Markle brought her on stage and asked her what the biggest tip she had ever received was.
She replied that it was $10. Rev. Markle then handed her $15 from his own pocket.
“We’ve been teaching our church this last month about being generous, and so we did something special for you today,” he continued. “We took up a special offering for a tip for you.”
Without a moment to lose, the reverend then handed her the rest of his congregation’s tip — a stack of bills valued at $1,046.
Natasha not surprisingly burst into tears and hugged the reverend as the crowd cheered.
“I hope that this can help you,” Markle then said to her. “I don’t know what’s going on in your life.”
“It can help a lot,” she replied.” Thank you so much. Thank you everybody.”
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the congregation, which draws about 500 to 600 people each week, was wrapping up a sermon series on “I was Broke. Now I’m Not.”
