Reacting to the backlash online, the church spokesman and Osteen’s father-in-law Donald Iloff issued a statement saying,
have never closed our doors. We will continue to be a distribution
center for those in need. We are prepared to shelter people once the
cities and county shelters reach capacity. Lakewood will be a value to
the community in the aftermath of this storm in helping our fellow
citizens rebuild their lives’.
Well, after several
backlash on social media, the man of God just tweeted that the church is
now open to receive anyone who needs shelter.
