After fierce backlash, Jesse Duplantis says his ministry donated $100K in generators to Ida victims in Louisiana

“We were really devastated by this storm,” Parish President Matthew Jewell told the network while comparing the damage to that of Hurricane Katrina. “It’s going to be a long restoration process.” St. Charles Parish was one of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Ida.

Duplantis, who also leads Jesse Duplantis Ministries, and his wife, Cathy, were forced to defend themselves in a video message on Facebook Tuesday, after people accused his church of doing nothing to help his community as they suffer through the aftermath of the hurricane.

Thank God for people that came and helped us do all of those things.

“You’re hearing all kinds of rumors that we’re not doing this, we’re not doing [that], that’s all a bunch of malarkey. I could use another word, but you understand what I’m talking about,” he continued before revealing that his ministry had already donated some $100,000 worth of generators and he had plans to do even more.
