Single Mom Delivery Driver Brought To Tears After Receiving Incredible Tip From Local Church
March 6, 2018
A pizza delivery driver was brought to tears after being surprised with an $1,800 tip during a church service.
Chicago’s New Life Covenant Church says they have been challenging members of the church to honor people. Last Sunday, Pastor Wilfredo De Jesús ordered a pizza with the intentions of surprising, and honoring, the delivery person.
When Monique Hall arrived with the order, she was brought on stage by De Jesús, unaware of what was about to happen. He presented her with $100 tip. Then De Jesús asked church members to join him.
As the tips continued to pile up, Hall became emotional from the overwhelming amount of people who came to the stage to honor her.
“I definitely wasn’t expecting it, but I knew that I had been struggling for a long time being a single parent, and not having their father in their life, it takes a real damper on you, especially trying to make ends meet,” Hall told WGN 9 News. “So when they did that, I was overwhelmed and I was shocked. I felt so loved by them – all I could do was cry.”
In addition to the incredible tip, Hall was given a bible and an invite to come back anytime.
“We want to let you know, here at New Life Covenant Church, that whether you have a church to worship in or not, we want you to know that you’re welcome here. You’ll always remember this day that you were marked by God. It could of been any other restaurant, any other person, but it was you,” De Jesús said during the prayer.
Hall told WGN she made sure to spread the church’s message by sharing the tips she received with her coworkers.
