A Kansas City church was hit again after it had already been burglarized 10 times in the last two years.
The latest break-in happened last Friday at the First Haitian Baptist Church, located at East 24th Street and Kensington Avenue.
The church's carpet, bathrooms, pipes, water heater and electric wires have all been vandalized. But church leaders aren't mad at the criminals.
"We have a problem with thieves coming and taking whatever we have in the church, but we know that is because of sin. We pray the person can get saved. If you come to saving knowledge of Jesus Christ you will no longer steal stuff, because the Bible says those who steal, steal no more," pastor Judson Pierre said.
The congregation said it has already spent $25,000 on repairs to their building.
