In 1982, Alexander, age 8, asked Pastor Phil, "Preacher, if there really is a God, why is He letting me go hungry?" The young pastor couldn't answer, but the question burned in his heart. The next week, being aware of this, a young man brought $75.00 of McDonald's gift certificates and asked him to pass them out, especially to Alexander's family.

Upon seeing Alexander Pastor Phil said, "You asked me a tough question last week.Yes, there really is a God and, no, it's not His will that you go hungry.  If your mom asks where you got these coupons, tell her that 2000 years ago a man stretched out his hands on a Roman cross and paid for them with his blood so that this pastor could give these to you today. Alexander, I give these to you in Jesus' name." Heaventrain continues to demonstrate God's love to Cleveland's hurting children.
