Televangelist brings ministry to Houston but not without controversy

Televangelist Benny Hinn is bringing his ministry of healing to downtown Houston Thursday, but not everyone is singing his praises.

(02/24/05 – HOUSTON) A pastor who claims to be a miracle healer will be at the Toyota Center Thursday night, but not everyone welcomes him.

Chances are you’ve seen Benny Hinn on TV, performing his miraculous healings. Houstonian Jackie DeLeon went with her mother to see Hinn’s crusade during his last visit here.

She was suffering from lung cancer and for her, Hinn was a last hope. She appeared on TV, apparently being healed by Hinn.

After her appearance, she gave hundreds of dollars she couldn’t afford to his crusade and stopped taking her medications. She died three weeks later.

“To know that he’s coming to Houston and all these people who are sick are going to him and I know that right now they are all excited. They’re thinking, ‘Oh my God. This is it. It’s only going to be a couple more days I have to be like this and I’m going to be healed.’ It kills me,” said DeLeon.

Hinn’s ministry denied Eyewitness News requests for an interview and a request for a list of healings.
