Movie producer and actor Tyler Perry has replaced a van that was stolen from a local church in Stockbridge.
Members at Lighthouse Community Church in Stockbridge said they showed up for service last Sunday and the van was gone. They said the only thing left was a pile of broken glass from a shattered window.
Church members said the 15-seat van played a vital role not only for the church, but also for the community’s children. They said the often used the van to take kids to various church events.
“After seeing our story on the Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11,“ church administrator Cindy Smith said Tyler Perry called to tell her that he had bought them a new van.
“Just his generosity, his willingness to help us here … he didnt have to do this, but he took the time to call us and to offer this to us and we’re completely in awe and overwhelmed and excited and we know that the Lord touched his heart to do this,” she said.
Smith said church members will pick the van up from a nearby dealership Friday morning.
