HAYSVILLE, Kan. (AP) -- The pastor of a small Kansas church that serves cowboys and cowgirls says he's forgiven the thieves who caused thousands of dollars of damage at the church over the weekend.
The thieves destroyed air conditioners at the Prairie Trail Cowboy Church in Haysville, just south of Wichita. They got away with only about 40 dollars worth of aluminum.
KWCH reports (http://bit.ly/JkYONi ) church members found the damage as they arrived for services Sunday. A member of the congregation saw a truck near the church's air conditions on Saturday afternoon but assumed it was a repairman.
Pastor Chris Bray is offering forgiveness to the thieves. He says the church is ready to help anyone who is so desperate and obviously needs help.
