Houston weather, traffic, news | FOX 26 | MyFoxHouston

The internet is all the buzz over the past two days about Mega Church Bishop I.V. Hilliards letter of plea to his congregation to help pay for the replacement of its helicopter blades.

The reports stating that a news letter was sent out to thousands of  mega church members of New Light Church  by  Bishop I.V. Hilliard telling  parishioners that if they each donated $52 to the church’s aviation department, which would in turn pay for the helicopter replacement blades, they would receive a car of their choice as a blessing from God that would arrive in either 52 days or 52 weeks (one calendar year).

There has been so much criticism surrounding this letter that the church issued the following statement:

[quote]New Light Church World Outreach and Worship Centers, Inc. regularly make appeals to Special Partners, Members and friends of the church for the support of various programs and services. Occasionally, it is not uncommon for an appeal to be directed toward specific Kingdom projects or specific needs. In this instance, the appeal was directed to our Special Partners and friends who are familiar with the Biblical principles upon which we base our faith. We sincerely regret if anyone was offended by this appeal in that it was not our intent.[/quote]
