Texas pastor endorses David Melville in 4th District Race
“I am honored and humbled to receive the support of a very good friend and fellow pastor,” Melville said. “Don’s story is one of hope and perseverance, and through his ministry, he has touched the lives of millions. I believe we could use more hope and kindness in our politics, and I hope to have the opportunity to represent the people of this district with positive leadership in Congress.”
“David has been a unifying force in churches and in this community,” said Piper. “Even though I’m a Republican, I didn’t hesitate in supporting him because we need to send someone with David’s heart to Washington. Congress has stopped working as it should, but we can get it back on the right track with people like David Melville.”
Piper, a native of Bossier City, lives in the Houston area. Piper's book has been met with controversy from some who believe that what he went through was a 'near death' experience, and from others who claim he is a fraud. Google the book if you are interested in more.
The first video is of a Piper appearance on The 700 Club, the other is more recent.
