If you have sny way to confirm it’s verasity please let me know . True or not it is wonderful storytelling but we at youviewed endeavor to desl in facts whenever possible . Thankd again . johngalt

    Not a true story. Find out where he is a pastor. The only place you will find Pastor Jeremiah Steepek is in regards to this story.
