Fresno Church Trailer Stolen: Pastor Prays For A Miracle

Posted: Updated:
A Fresno Pastor is hoping thieves will have a conscience and return 8-thousand dollars in stolen goods taken late Wednesday night in northeast Fresno.  The trailer is owned by The Mid-Valley Southern Baptist Association.  The group loans the trailer to church groups having community events. 

A local Pastor parked the trailer in his front yard.  Sometime late Wednesday night thieves unhooked the trailer and hauled it away.  It was recovered on Thursday but everything inside the trailer was stolen.  It was packed to the brim with two bounce houses, popcorn and snow cone machines, chairs, tables, sound system and a lot more. 

Pastor Tom Sims values all the equipment at $8,000.  He adds that no one in Fresno is exempt when it comes to crime.  "No, no, no and I have a long history of being robbed at my church, but I didn't expect this at our association.  We're not untouchable.  We're part of the same community everybody else lives in."

Seven churches were hoping to use what the association calls, "a block party in a box" at gatherings over the next two months.  Pastor Sims is hoping the thief will have a change of heart.  "Bring it back!  We can use it better than you.  Have somebody call me from a phone with no tracing on it.  Tell me where it's gonna be and we'll come get it."

Pastor Sims says the trailer is insured but local churches need the party box now.
