TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Pastor David Dykes of Green Acres Baptist Church visited KETK on our East Texas Live broadcast on Tuesday discussing ways the church is assisting people to pay off their medical debt.
Pastor Dykes explained that this was possible after partnering with a corporation that chose clients that they believed needed it the most.
This is the second time this year that the church has taken this step forward. They went through the same process in September.
The total amount of money from both September and December being given is nine million dollars.
Some people in Smith County have even responded back after receiving a letter stating that their medical debt had been erased, expressing their gratitude for the gesture.
Pastor Dykes mentioned that the news is received in the mail through yellow envelopes that may look like spam. However, he explains that the letters will mention the good news on the outside of the package.
