COUNCIL CHRONICLE – Because God works in mysterious ways, we give you the story of a Louisiana-based televangelist who only recently reached out to his flock to fulfill God’s works. And, as chance has it, in this case, God’s work refers to buying off a $54 million private jet that “flies non-stop.”
US Televangelist Says He Owned Three Jets
Meet Jesse Duplantis, a 68-year-old Christian minister from Destrehan, a stone’s throw away from New Orleans. Mr. Duplantis’ favorite activities include preaching the word of the Lord and traveling around the world for even more preaching.
Following in the steps of Jesus, the US televangelist often travels to other parts of the world to do what he does best.
However, lately, Duplantis has hit a rough patch, travel-wise. As the Louisiana tele-preacher put it, flight companies are demons, and the only reasonable way to get around when one’s pressed by his schedule is to have your very own private jet, fueled and ready to go.
During a recent press appearance, the Christian minister told the reporter that he owned three private jets, courtesy of his flock, and, to this day, he managed to avoid those busy and ‘unclean’ airport ques.
Still, the US televangelist argues that there’s room for improvement. As a result, he recently reached out to all members of his church to give from the heart.
Duplantis confessed that he had eyeballed the Dassault Falcon 7X jet for some time. And with a ride like that, spreading the word of God would be a piece of pie, as Duplantis claimed.
The reason why Jesse Duplantis wants the $54 million jet is as astonishing as the idea of a church minister having his private ride – because it requires fewer stops for refueling.
According to the US televangelist, he often needed to stop for gas with the other jets. With this one, Duplantis claims that he can travel around the world without having to stop.
