Jeff Louis is a 22 year old delivery driver for Gionino’s Pizza in Ohio, US, when he received an order that would shake him to his core. He was told to deliver a large number of pizzas to Life Point Church but was left shaking when the congregation gave him a tip of more than $700, inspiring him to record his reaction immediately afterwards in his car which he posted on YouTube and has reached thousands of people.
Life Point’s pastor Ken Wright came up with the idea of tipping the delivery driver while thinking of Christmas deeds. “Yeah, I just thought let’s tip him $100. It’s the holiday season,” Pastor Ken said.
In a twist Jeff wasn’t expecting, the congregation asked him to take the pizzas up to the stage and then, one by one, tipped him.
“You know, the most amazing thing happened,” a teary-eyed Jeff says in the video. “This whole church came up and gave me over $700 for a tip.”
“You know it was spontaneous. It just happened,” Pastor Ken said. “They started lining up one by one with their own cash tips.”
But for Jeff, who is in recovery, it was more than just a generous tip… it was a total restoration of hope.
“It really truly amazes me that people who don’t even know me just wanted to help me out that much”
