Bishop Saves Churchgoers from Shooting
A bishop in Milwaukee, WI, saved his church during a shooting that broke out following service. We should thank God for this!
From Christian Post. The bishop of a Milwaukee church possibly saved congregants’ lives as they found themselves caught in a deadly crossfire outside the church building right after the Sunday service ended.
“Upon them coming out of the church, a car pulled right here and began to fire at another car that was behind them,” Bishop Henry Kilpatrick of Reformation of Holiness Church told WISN 12 News.
“There was a massive shooting right here. Me and one of the deacons began to push the people back on inside and tell them to hit the floor, get down on the floor, and they got down on the floor,” added Kilpatrick, who founded the church 24 years ago with his late wife, Rose.
No churchgoer was injured….

“People in this area know, as well as I know, that this is one of the worst areas in the city,” he told WISN 12. “Why am I here? I chose to be here to help the people in this area….”
