Televangelist Jesse Duplantis is responding to critics who say his Louisiana ministry was not doing enough to help communities hit by Hurricane Ida.
Duplantis’ Covenant Church is in Destrehan, St. Charles Parish, where “nearly every home and structure” was slammed by Ida recently. Officials have said power may not be restored until the end of the month.
According to The Christian Post, Critics said Duplantis’ church was not reaching out to the ravaged community as they try to recover from the devastating effects of the storm. Duplantis, however, joined with his wife, Cathy, in a video to say many people in his congregation have been at work and helping others.
“We’re helping people literally all over everywhere,” Duplantis insisted. “The problem is when you come and look at our ministry, you can’t see any of that because we had oak trees down, breaking this and we had to get all that stuff out. Thank God for people that came and helped us do all of those things.
“You’re hearing all kinds of rumors that we’re not doing this, we’re not doing [that], that’s all a bunch of malarkey. I could use another word, but you understand what I’m talking about,” he added.
