NORTH SPOKANE, Wash. -- Church leaders from the Mountain View Assembly of God Church in North Spokane were scrambling to come up with the thousands of dollars it would cost to repair the damage done to the building earlier in the week.
But a generous local business ensured that the church will not have to pay a single dollar to clean up the graffiti.
The church said their phone had been ringing off the hook since the story of the vandalism made the news. Businesses all over wanted to help them, and one has already made a huge difference.
The whole crew of A+ Masonry Cleaning and Sealing dropped what they were doing and headed to the church as soon as they could. The company said that even though business is tough, helping out free of charge is simply the right thing to do.
"I'd like to see people helping others out more when we have a chance," said Chris Murphy. "We're all people."
And church members were reminded that the world is full of good people too. Church leaders said they held a special meeting Monday night just to pray for whoever was responsible for the vandalism.
"It's pretty extraordinary all the way around," said church board member Gary Smith.
