You've heard of the saying, "What goes around, comes around!" This week's edition of Pay It Forward revolves around a Lubbock couple who decided to give back to a local pastor who married them not too long ago. We set up along West 19th Street west of Milwaukee Avenue.
It only took a minute or two for Brad and Paula Williams to show up. When they saw our Pay It Forward sign, they pulled into the parking lot right away. Paula jumped out exclaiming that she was JUST talking about Pay It Forward with her husband. She was excited and ready to help someone that is close to her heart.
Paula told us that she wanted to help a local pastor named Marvin James. Marvin is known as "Brother James" in his congregation. Paula told us that he married them a little while back and thought that Marvin could put the money to good use.
We drive a short distance to Marvin's house. We pay out $300 to Paula and head to the front door where we surprise Marvin and his wife Betty. Paula and Brad count out $300 to Marvin once inside the house. Marvin said he could certainly use it and would put it to good use.
Be looking for our Pay It Forward sign soon! You could become our next playmaker!
