"He actually said that morning he gave his last taxi fare into the offering not knowing how he was going to get to work that whole week and here God blessed him with a car," Driver said.

And the pastor said that more blessings were coming: "We want to be able to give people their first houses. I mean there are politicians who promise people these things and never fulfill it."

He also has a message for sceptics: "If people say it's madness and crazy, I think, that's their opinion. You can't serve God and not be a giver."

Driver said that the notion of prosperity gospel was not a bad thing.
