QUOTE: "We’re really fun-loving and we enjoy life. We’re not a cult. We just love Jesus ... and fireworks.” —Pattie Guidry, a church member who also volunteers as a fireworks salesperson at House of Prayer First United Pentecostal Church in Thibodaux, La. The church sells fireworks before the Fourth of July every year to raise money for missions projects and to pay off the debt on its buildings. Its pastor expects to raise between $15,000 and $20,000 after taxes and pay off the church’s mortgage by the end of the year. [houmatoday.com, 6/28/10]
