Plumber Finds Bag Of Cash And Checks Stashed In 500 Envelops In Bathroom Of Joel Osteen's Church

Joel Osteen, pastor of Lakewood Church, America’s largest church has been questioned by police after ‘bags and bags’ of cash and checks were found in about 500 envelopes in a bathroom wall at the church.

A plumber, known as Justin, who worked at the church called into a Houston radio morning 100.3.

The Bull show to tell them about his shocking discovery, which comes barely seven years after about $600,000 in donations were stolen in the church and haven’t been recovered.

Justin said he was called in to Lakewood Church, on November 10 to fix a broken toilet.

‘There was a loose toilet in the wall, and we removed the tile,’ he explained during the call Thursday morning, December 2..

‘We went to go remove the toilet, and I moved some insulation away and about 500 envelopes fell out of the wall, and I was like ‘Oh wow!”

Houston police say that cash and checks were found in the wall, and that they talked to ‘everybody associated with the building’ they were able to contact.

In 2014, $600,000 worth of donations were stolen from the church. The amount was a portion of donations made from one weekend of services and it has never been found.

Justin told the radio show that he informed the church’s supervisors and had to wait at the church for almost seven hours after his discovery.

‘Recently, while repair work was being done at Lakewood Church, an undisclosed amount of cash and checks were found. Lakewood immediately notified the Houston Police Department and is assisting them with their investigation.

‘Lakewood has no further comment at this time,’ a spokesperson for the church told DailyMail.com. 

Lakewood Church welcomes about 52,000 attendees across multiple services per week, and its services are streamed worldwide.

Osteen, 58, the televangelist megachurch pastor, is estimated to be worth $50 million.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.

JUST IN: Ghana Records Two New Cases Of Omicron COVID-19 Variant

 

BA.2, the new Omicron variant that led to a surge of new COVID-19 cases in Europe, has now overtaken the U.S. as the most dominant version of the virus throughout the country. This latest data estimate is from a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, whose director Dr. Rochelle Walensky, predicted that BA.2 would quickly become dominate in the U.S

The first case of the BA.2 was initially identified in the U.S. back in December. Meanwhile, scientists have been closely watching BA.2—which is now the third of the genetically distinct varieties of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The rapid growth of BA.2 is due partially to its eight gene mutations that spike protein on the virus’s surface, something that is not found in the previous strain, BA.1.

Although BA.2 is more transmissible than BA.1, as of now there are no signs that it causes more severe illness and it’s shown that vaccines continue to protect against the worst outcomes.

Many U.S. health officials said that they expect cases to rise and are firmly blaming U.S. residents for not doing enough to prevent another potential surge of COVID-19.
