One Day After Package Thieves Snatched His Kids’ Gifts, Florida Man is Blown Away By Church Family’s Generosity

A group of men, whom Rivera identifies only as his “church family”, arrived at his doorstep to drop off several large packages.

Noel Rivera of Riverview, Florida became one of many recent victims of so-called “porch pirates,” thieves who steal packages from their neighbors’ doorsteps. This time of year, many of these stolen packages are meant to be Christmas gifts, making their loss especially heartbreaking. A heartwarming turn in Rivera’s story, though, reminds us that the best things in life, even at Christmastime, aren’t things.

Rivera recounted the theft with shock, and a healthy dose of sarcasm, on his Facebook page in a post which has since gone viral.

In all, the thieves stole five packages full of gifts Rivera had bought for his children.

The brief video clip shows two women rapidly approaching the porch, grabbing the boxes, and happily realizing that they were boxes of “kids stuff”.

“The video shows how excited they were when they realized it was kids clothes,” Rivera said in his post. “Hope they fit their kids because seems they may not have for Christmas. If they would have just asked I would have bought their kids even more than they stole.”

In just one day, though, God moved in the situation in a small, simple, and beautiful way. A group of men, whom Rivera identifies only as his “church family”, arrived at his doorstep to drop off several large packages.

“Hey, listen,” one of the men says into Rivera’s security camera. “I hope your packages come back, but we just wanted to help you guys out.”

“25hrs [sic] exactly after 2 ladies thought it would be ok to steal Christmas presents from my front door, my church family shows up at my front door unannounced showing Christ’s love,” Rivera said of the incredible act of kindness.
It should also be noted that the thieves, identified as Briella Johnson, 20, and Kellie Larkee, 38, aren’t far from reaping the consequences of their actions. Johnson, according to WTSP, was arrested on charges of grand and petit theft. Larkee isn’t far behind, as Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies are getting a warrant for her arrest as well.
“Christ is the reason for the season,” Rivera concluded in his follow-up post. “These are the things that need to be remembered during this time and always.”
How right he is! Neither Rivera nor the two thieves truly need things to be satisfied this Christmas season. Rivera, however, was humbled and reminded through the love of his church family that Jesus is the greatest gift of all.
Save conservative media!

Tulsi Gabbard Launches $50 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Hillary Over ‘Russian Asset’ Comment

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is quickly proving that while she is most assuredly on the left politically, she’s also got a lot in common with those on the right as well. Like a mutual disdain for former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Clinton targeted Gabbard for some of her more centrist policies last year, stating that Gabbard is a “Russian asset.” Well, much like President Trump, Gabbard isn’t afraid of a fight. In fact, she’s now suing Hillary for $50 million in a defamation lawsuit over the statement. Here’s more from Fox News: During an October 2019 interview with the podcast Campaign HQ With David Plouffe, Clinton suggested the 2020 presidential candidate was “the favorite of the Russians” and “a Russian asset.” Gabbard insists these statements have no grounds in reality, and that Clinton knew or should have known this at the time. “Rather than facts or reliable evidence, Clinton’s basis for the Defamatory Statements was one or both of: (a) her own imagination; or (b) extremely dubious conspiracy theories that any reasonable person (and especially Clinton, a former United States Senator and Secretary of State) would know to be fanciful, wholly unverified, and inherently and objectively unreliable,” said the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Manhattan federal court. Clinton did not specifically name Gabbard in her remarks, but strongly implied she was referring to her. The complaint points out that when asked if she was referring to Gabbard, Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded, “If the nesting doll fits,” a reference to Russian dolls. Gabbard’s complaint states in no uncertain terms that “Tulsi is not a Russian asset,” and that neither Russia nor anyone else “controls her or her presidential campaign.” To the contrary, it plays up her history of public service, from her time in the Army National Guard…

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Published

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
