An Orlando, Florida, business is facing a lawsuit filed by an area businessman. Nonprofit ministry World Hope Inc. was recently sued by the business man for the return of $117,000 that he donated over the course of several years. Also named as a defendant in the lawsuit is the pastor who runs the ministry.
The Orlando businessman said he donated the money to support two chicken farms that were slated to be developed in Kenya. Instead, he claims that some of that money was diverted into the pastor’s bank account. That money was then allegedly used to pay the pastor’s bills, including money owed to the Internal Revenue Service. The lawsuit came about after the businessman asked his accountant to look into how the money he donated was spent.
