Mr. Duplantis' favorite activities include preaching the word of the Lord and traveling around the world for even more preaching.

He says he could fly cheaper because he has his own fuel farm and he can avoid refueling stops.
On its website Dassault boasts that the Falcon 7X combines "fighter jet technology with an elegant, whisper-quiet executive cabin". During the video, he recalled a conversation he claims to have had with God.
The televangalist is hoping his followers will donate $54 million to let him buy a private jet.

"It was one of the greatest statements the Lord ever told me, he said, 'Jesse do you want to come up where I'm at?'" the minister says. "You looking at a blessed man".
According to his Amazon author biography, he is the founder of Jesse Duplantis Ministries, which includes a weekly television program that reached 106 million American households. "It's gonna reach people". Duplantis' Facebook page shows events scheduled throughout the summer in the US and Canada. He is not the only televangelist spending big on private jets. The campaign was shut down amid widespread criticism, but Dollar wound up purchasing the jet anyway. "You get in a long tube with a bunch of demons, and it's deadly". But the trouble is, he's "just been burning them up for the Lord Jesus Christ".
Mr Duplantis justified the request by saying that Jesus had told people to "go into the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, now how we gonna do that? I really believe that preachers ought to go on every available voice, every available outlet, to get this gospel preached to the world", Duplantis said in a video posted online last week, according to The Christian Post.More news: Top Russian Official Pledges Support for Family of Slain Journalist, Arkady Babchenko
