CELINA, Ohio — Five women who work at an Ohio Waffle House received a touching Christmas surprise from members of Grand Lake United Methodist Church.
Rev. Mick Whistler, the lead pastor of the church in Celina, challenged church members to set aside $1 each week of Advent, with each family bringing five $1 bills to the Christmas Eve service.
At the end of the service, Whistler took off his minister’s robes and revealed he was wearing a red server’s apron. He announced the church raised more than $3,500 and that they were going to take it to the Waffle House in Wapakoneta, where servers were unable to be home with their families.
Despite the snow and poor road conditions, church member Barb Vorhees said between 60 and 70 church members joined the caravan to the restaurant.
The five workers were amazed by the large envelope stuffed with $1 bills.
“They were all very touched by it,” Vorhees said. “The cool thing about it was none of us knew about it. It was a surprise to us, too.”

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — A Patriots fan whose wheelchair disappeared after last weekend’s playoff game in Foxborough received a new one from Robert Kraft before the start of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.
Cindy Morais, of Tiverton, Rhode Island, was brought to tears when she was given the new wheelchair.
Kraft invited Morais and her family down to the field before the game to present her the new wheel char.
“It says ‘do your job,’ that’s from the locker room,” Kraft explained to Morais and her family Sunday.
The char also had her name on the back and was signed by all the players.
Morais' original wheel chair was eventually found in the stadium, but we’re pretty sure she's going to use the new one instead.

— A 14-year-old boy who recently underwent surgery to remove a 10-pound tumor from his face has died, according to news reports.
Emanuel Zayas developed the benign tumor while suffering from polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, a genetic disorder in which fibrous tissue begins to replace bone in the body.
“Our condolences and prayers for Emanuel's family and the loss of a very brave young man,” Dr. Robert E. Marx, a surgeon at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, told NBC 6. "Another angel has arrived in heaven."
