Tyler Perry is known for his big movie productions, plays and funny roles as the outspoken character Madea. But this past weekend at T.D. Jakesâ€™ MegaFest 2013 he became known for what the church would call a â€œcheerful giver.â€
The 43 yr. old is well known for his many acts of kindness as well because he always gives back to a worthy cause.Â Mr. Perry stood before a crowd of people at the Potterâ€™s House in Dallas and professed that he was moved by God to donate $1 Million to T.D. Jakes’ Youth Ministry. Â Mr. Perry was given the stage and microphone and he let it ripped.Â The media mogul says heâ€™s always been a giver all his life.Â And basically when people have given to you, you give back.Â Then he went on to say:
â€œWhen people have given to you and sown into you and God has touched them and given you favor… See, they donâ€™t understand it where I come from.Â They donâ€™t understand it in Hollywood but Iâ€™m going to tell you something about the blood of Jesus.Â All of my life my mother she didnâ€™t have much. Â She didnâ€™t have much to give me, she didnâ€™t have millions of dollars, she didnâ€™t have some legacy but she had Jesus and she taught me about that God!! I didnâ€™t even know he was trying to build this youth center. I didnâ€™t even know it but I know how important the youth are. So we were sitting in the service and I leaned up towards him and said Iâ€™ve just been touched to give $1 million.â€
Of course the crowd went Holy Ghost crazy when they heard that announcement.Â After giving his heartfelt testimony, Mr. Perry began to speak in tongues, then leans back and lays hands on T.D. Jakes himself.Â We are used to seeing this from Bishop T.D. Jakes but not Tyler Perry.Â What an awesome event and an awesome random act of kindness from Tyler Perry.Â Canâ€™t wait to hear about what the money has done to help the youth because they do need more people like T.D. Jakes and Tyler Perry to step up to the plate.
