HELPING HAND: Fundraiser For Pastor
A Des Moines pastor who lost his church to an arsonist is getting help from the community.
The Lighthouse Full Gospel Baptist Church burned a couple of weeks ago. Pastor David Reasby had planned to sell the church to fund his retirement.
Monday night, people gathered at Buffalo Wild Wings on Merle Hay Road for a fundraiser for Pastor Reasby.
He is grateful for the support.
“You never know who really your friends are ‘til trouble comes. And I have to say it took this for me to know who my friends are but it’s beautiful to know,” says Reasby.
Police say the fire was set by a homeless man who was taking shelter at the church.
